Mice and rats are harmful. They are destructive pests and serious safety hazards. They start fires by gnawing on electric cables. The next time you hear the phrase “fire of unknown origin,” think about rats and mice. They eat large amounts of food. They contaminate even more with their urine, feces, and hair. At least 20 percent of the world’s food is eaten or contaminated by rats and mice each year. They damage structures, books, furniture, even appliances, through gnawing and burrowing. Worse, they spread disease to humans and other animals through their bite. They are also transporting fleas, lice, mites and ticks. They do this by leaving their droppings in food and other materials that humans contact. Rodents are vectors for bubonic plague, rat bite fever, leptospirosis, hantavirus, trichinosis, infectious jaundice, rat mite dermatitis, salmonellosis, pulmonary fever, and typhus. Mice have been linked to asthma.
Rats can bite babies in their cribs.The smell of milk or other food on the baby is attractive to a rat looking for food. Moreover a clean baby in a clean crib is a lot safer from rat attack. To protect your baby, take the bottle away as soon it’s finished. Wash baby hands and face. Do the same for any disabled or elderly persons in your household who cannot care for themselves.
