Its no secret that rats spread disease, they have been blamed for the plague after all. A rat infestation is a serious business and this is why.

Rat poop is super dangerous. It can cause a massive number of illness like a rat-bite fever which you get from eating food contaminated with rat poop or urine. That’s not all it can infect you with. You can get the Hantavirus, Hemorrhagic fever, Tularemia, and more. The list goes on and on because rats are loaded with the disease. Most of the disease you can catch are fatal if not treated quickly, so if you see a rat, or catch one in a trap, don’t touch it, especially not with your bare hands.

A rat infestation won’t just leave droppings in your cutlery drawers and on the floor, it will be in your insulation and all over your attic as well. Preventive measures you can undertake include finding out what potential rat entry-points could look like. A rat infestation that is left unchecked could result in you having to tear out all your walls, pull out all your insulation, sterilize behind the walls and then install new insulation and drywall all just because you had rats. It is therefore important to know how to deal with a rat infestation.
