Rodent-Related Diseases Can Be Deadly

Share Article

Rodents infiltrate human homes seeking shelter from the elements but these wild animals can bring deadly diseases with them. Atticare, insulation contractors in New Jersey, announced today a new deal designed to help.


When the air begins to get colder, animals start their preparations for winter. Bears begin eating for hibernation, birds begin their long migrations south, and rodents search for shelter. Unfortunately for humans, rodents often find human homes to be convenient places to go. When they do, they bring with them the dangerous microbes that can cause very serious diseases.

Atticare, professional insulation contractors in new jersey, announced today a new attic insulation and clean-up special, extended to both San Francisco and New Jersey locations, so that more customers can take advantage; the deal starts as low as $99 per attic.

Rodent waste is often the primary culprit of rodent-caused disease, as it can dry out and then release virus-containing dust into the air. This is why it is important to have secure, sealed, and well-maintained insulation in all areas of a house, but most importantly, attic insulation, which is where rodents often show up. The warmth and relative peace of the attic is preferred by some rodents, who can use the attic insulation as bedding without much fear of being disturbed. Rodent removal is typically the best action to take when faced with this problem, and is performed by many companies, including Atticare in Secaucus, New Jersey.

Pests, like mice and rats, make their nests inside ducts and attic insulation, and their droppings, and sometimes decaying bodies, release disease-causing particles into the air. These particles then recycle through heating and cooling ducts, and are breathed in by humans. The microbes cause respiratory disease.

These rodent wastes can cause certain diseases, like Hantavirus, which is a potentially deadly pulmonary infection, Murine Typhus, which is transmitted by fleas carried in by rodents, Salmonella, a painful but rarely deadly disease, Leptospirosis, and Meningitis. Some diseases are carried by fleas or ticks that travel on the bodies of the rodents as well.

Rodent removal is necessary, but sometimes, just removing them is not enough. Making sure that insulation is secure and free of openings for rodents to enter is another vital step, as it will ensure that the pests cannot return, and therefore leave rodent waste in a home again. Sometimes, insulation removal altogether is required.This can also happen to crawl space insulation. Rats, mice, moths, and other vermin leave behind dangerous rodent waste in these areas too, which can be a major nuisance if left out of control.

It is also important to control molds, as they are another source of possible irritation and disease for humans. As part of AttiCare’s air duct repair service, they offer both mold removal and rodent control to get rid of rodent waste altogether.
