During the winter months, rodents like mice and rats usually look for food and shelter in warm spaces. They will make their way through the smallest holes, cracks, and gaps in our house or property.
Once they’re inside, mice and rats create nests and hide in closed, dark spaces where there’s usually not too much traffic: attics, garages, crawlspaces, and even wall voids. The main problem with rodents is the viruses that come from their urine and droppings.
Rodent urine and droppings contain multiple bacteria. It’s the cause of dangerous diseases and viruses that can start from simple flu-like symptoms to severe respiratory failure. Mice and rats can also represent structural damage, due to the decomposition of this waste.
Rodent droppings can carry bacteria and parasites, even after dry. These bacteria can be spread through air ventilation because most of them are airborne, thus, creating a hazardous environment for the people living in these households.
