Not only can rats be a nuisance, but they can also pass diseases along to those they come in contact with. Rats often invade homes, as they seek out warm areas to live. The rats then chew and gnaw on objects in the home, causing severe damage. They can also spread diseases to those living in the home through the air, their feces and bites. Many of these diseases are rather serious, and some can even be fatal.
A list of just some of the deadly disease carried by rats:
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Eosinophillic Meningitis
