Rat Trapping

Having rats in your home or business puts you, your family, and your employees at risk. Not only can shutterstock_396317926they damage your property, but they also put your health and safety at risk. While many people think that trapping rats is an easy job, not managing the task properly can lead to illness or injury, and trapping them is only half of the battle.

Health Risks Associated with Rat Infestations

Having rats in your home or workplace is a significant health hazard. A trapped or cornered rat may bite or scratch if you get too close, and severe injuries can require emergency treatment. Rats also carry a variety of dangerous diseases that can infect people. Some of the most dangerous diseases include:

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • Tularemia

You don’t have to come in physical contact with a rat to be infected, but coming in contact with a rat, even when trapped, can increase the risk. Just breathing contaminated air, eating contaminated food, and drinking contaminated water is enough to come down with these illnesses. And being bitten can present even more opportunities for infection
