Common Rat Issues
- Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include rat-bite-fever and leptospirosis.
- Rats will transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their feces or urine. They can also transmit indirectly; for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
- Rats' presence can be fairly inconspicuous in buildings, so it's important to call a professional rat removal company to make sure you've addressed the whole problem.
