Picture yourself sleeping soundly after a hard day’s work. You’re caught up in a really nice dream, mouth lolling open from exhaustion. Between intakes of breath and the occasional snore, you feel something falling on your face, then something gets into your mouth and you suddenly jolt awake, coughing and choking, breaking your peaceful slumber. Horror of horrors, you find out to your absolute disgust that what you thought was dust or whatever was actually rat droppings! Eeeew! I wager you wouldn’t want such an incident to happen to you.
There is a particular need for these problems to be put under control, since these problems are not only common in Florida, but worldwide. Businesses and homes are not all safe from the risks and damages associated with rodent infestation.
The need for good rodent control and elimination is quite a common issue in Florida, where homeowners and business proprietors are at great risk for infestation. The presence of rodents on one’s roof goes well beyond the typical rat control issue. The disease risk notwithstanding, the presence of roof rats can wreck havoc on residential and commercial property. It is important to know steps on how to keep roof rat infestations under control.
Rats are a major carrier of hazardous diseases and a number of bacterial infections, among them the Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, the plauge, Murine Typhus, Leptospirosis, Eosinophilic Meningitis, and Rat Bite Fever. This coterie of diseases are all highly dangerous and affect anyone regardless of age or state of health, which is why controlling rat infestation must be one of a homeowner’s or business owner’s top priorities.
If you have rodent control problems, it is easy to contract diseases carried by the pests since it is it is easy to spread the bacteria carried by rats by their droppings or by them coming into contact with food. Rat bites aren’t the only way to spread disease. Aside from droppings, urine is also another highly dangerous thing to come into contact with. If the pest infestation is not put under control, you will be at great risk for contracting diseases from the presence of roof rats. The ingestion of droppings, the contact of rat urine with foodstuffs or water, on skin even, and the inhalation of the fume from rat excrement is sufficient to infect a person.
The removal of rat droppings as well as any attempt at a thorough and quick termination of a rodent infestation can be dangerous, and should be handled by a trained and qualified Florida Pest Control specialist. The process of cleaning, decontamination, and termination is fast, reliable, and will prove beneficial for any business establishment or household.
