Our world is surrounded by countless of rats and their numbers are rapidly growing every day. Their presence must not be ignored, for they pose a greater health risk to our community than you can ever imagine.
These odious little rodents can transmit over 35 types of disease such as leptospirosis, salmonellosis, tularemia, Haverhill fever, and black death. Not only can these lethal diseases affect humans, they can infect animals as well.
- Through rat bites.
- Ingestion of food and water contaminated with rat saliva, hair, excrement, and urine.
- Direct contact with and handling of infected rats.
- Inhalation of dust contaminated with rat feces and urine.
