How Rodents and Other Wildlife Can Affect Your Health
Rodents and other wildlife can have harmful effects upon your
health, your family's health as well as cause damage to your home.
It is important to fully understand the dangers stemming from these
types of infestations. Below is a more detailed overview of the
health risks associated with particular rodents and birds.
Rodent Control: South Carolina Rat & Mice
Rodents (such as mice, rats. chipmunks and squirrels) can enter a
home through almost any opening or crack. It is important to
inspect for rodent droppings, especially in undisturbed areas such
as pantries, under baseboards, in attics and along walls. Rodent
droppings most often cause allergic reactions in human beings but
can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly
Hantavirus. More frequently, though, rodents serve as vectors,
carrying bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies and
contaminating food sources, kitchen surfaces and equipment. Arrow's
trained South Carolina rodent control professionals can
offer the expertise and knowledge of rodent biology to best protect
your health and rid your home of a rodent infestation.
