Gwinnett County, Lawrenceville Rat Control Situation:
Hi David, Wow, you have a wonderful website, chock full of helpful information. I do think I need to schedule an appt. for an estimate on cleanup..in the crawl space, under my bathroom floor. There is a terrible odor in my 7 X 3 ft one and only bathroom in the Lawrenceville GA area. (I am experienced....had rat nest in p trap of bathtub 5 yrs. ago). Omg Pest Control set traps and sealed the 2 spots we could find that seem most suspect to rat entry , and there were droppings, urine under the bathroom area. I will wait til we catch something before I have your guys come. Of most concern, is wanting someone to look carefully into that bathtub p-trap area with a snake flashlight (Omega will try to come up with one by monday)....I want to know where the urine saturation is... I have respiratory reaction (coughing, using albuterol inhaler, Kaiser pulmonologist concerned) I want to know if you can cleanse the areas well for cleanup, disinfect, etc so that the rat phernomes, etc don't linger. Most of all, I want my bathroom back! It is horrible!! Please let me know if you schedule online, and a timeframe, more info on cleanup! thanks so much, mary
Lawrenceville Rat Control Tip of The Week
What Diseases Are Caused By Rat Urine?
Rats are undoubtedly one of the animals that transmit the greatest number of diseases worldwide. These rodents are a very unpleasant species for humans, not only because they spend a lot of time in the garbage, but also because of the risk they pose to humans.
How Can You Get Infected Through A Rat's Urine?
Unfortunately, there are many ways a person can get a disease, virus, or infection from a rodent. From the moment a rat enters your property, you are exposed to a number of dangers that can seriously affect your health.
It is possible to become infected through direct contact with an object or food contaminated with rat urine. Rats often leave a trail of urine so that other rats can follow it to the best food source. This is why there could be rat urine on your food or even in the water.
Another way to get infected is to inhale dust contaminated with rat urine. The most frequent way to get infected by rat urine is through a fresh wound; the infection will have better access to your body.
It is considered to be a viral disease that seriously affects the body; it can cause hemorrhagic fever and affect the lungs. The disease is found in rodents of all types and is mainly transmitted through their urine. Some symptoms of the disease are:
- Muscular aches and chills
- Gastrointestinal problems
This infection may be better known as Weil's disease. It is considered to be a risky illness because if it is not treated in time it could be fatal. It is transmitted to humans through the urine of a carrier animal, including rats. This infection has all the symptoms of a normal infection, such as fever, dizziness, and body pain, except this infection can affect multiple important organs.
