Rodent droppings are not a laughing matter or something you should vacuum up without further disinfection. If you find rodent droppings chances are good that rodent urine and saliva are also most likely present and the animal is also likely to return.
Recently in Southern California rodents and their feces were found to carry the Hantavirus, an infection that cause people to get Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) which can be a fatal respiratory disease caused by rodents.
Rodent feces in attics often infect the insulation and ductwork that can quickly spread Hantavirus throughout your home. Scurrying noises from the attic or when you enter your garage are a clear indication that rodents have taken residence in your home. Rodents also cause significant damage to stored items by gnawing on fabrics, food containers and even electrical cables. To further exacerbate the issue, the nests and droppings of the rodents become favorite breeding sites for insects that can carry their own diseases into you house.
Health Risks of Rodent Droppings
- Hantavirus – As was seen recently in San Diego County and across Southern California. Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome is a sometimes-fatal respiratory disease in humans caused by rodents.
- Bubonic Plague – Is not yet eradicated and spread by the bite of a rodent infected flea.
- Salmonellosis – Food poisoning through consumption of contaminated food caused by rodents and feces.
- Rat-Bite Fever – RBF is spread by infected rodents or consuming food contaminated by them.
