Saint Petersburg Rodent Removal Tip:

What diseases are caused by rat urine?
There may not be two topics that are less palatable than rats and urine but being aware of the health dangers posed by rat urine could save you from a severe illness and even death. It is a fact that rats spread a number of serious diseases. That is why so many of us have an instinctual horror of the very idea of rats. It isn't just their appearance that fills us with dread, it is the historical fact of the sheer number of people who have died from an illness that they carry with them.

One of the main ways that they spread disease is through bodily fluids, especially their urine. If you have a rat infestation that obviously means that you have a high number of animals producing urine that seeps into walls, flooring, furniture, insulation, and even the food they might get into. In this article, we are going to explore a few of the serious diseases that are spread by rats via their urine.

Some diseases spread by rat urine
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome: A serious pulmonary disease with symptoms of fatigue, fever, shortness of breath, and severe muscle aches, particularly in large muscle groups. Symptoms also include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and severe difficulty breathing. It has a mortality rate of 38%.

It is transmitted by breathing in dust that is contaminated by rodent droppings or urine, direct contact with infected rodents, and (rarely) by rodent bites.

Hemorrhagic Fever with Rena Syndrome (HFRS): HFRS is a serious disease with significant symptoms. They range from headaches, back and abdominal pain, fever, chills, nausea, blurred vision, low blood pressure, acute shock, vascular leakage (bleeding), and acute kidney failure. It has a 1% to 15% mortality rate.

It is transmitted by breathing in dust that is contaminated by rodent droppings or urine, direct contact with infected rodents, and (rarely) by rodent bites.

rodent trapping Lassa Fever: The symptoms of Lassa fever can be mild, such as slight fever, general malaise, and headache. In some 20% of cases it progresses to more serious symptoms of hemorrhaging, respiratory distress, vomiting, shock, facial swelling, hearing loss, tremors, and encephalitis. It has a 1% mortality rate overall but, among patients who are hospitalized 15% to 20% die.

It is transmitted by breathing in dust that is contaminated by rodent droppings or urine, eating food contaminated by infected rodents, direct contact with infected rodents, and (rarely) by rodent bites.

Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM): The initial symptoms of LCM include fever, malaise, loss of appetite, muscle aches, headache, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, cough, joint pain, chest pain, testicular pain, and salivary gland pain. There are usually a few days of recovery and then there may be a second phase of the illness. Symptoms include meningitis, encephalitis, sensory disturbances, motor abnormalities, and meningoencephalitis (inflammation of the brain meninges). The mortality rate is less than 1%.

It is transmitted by breathing in dust that is contaminated by rodent droppings or urine, eating food contaminated by infected rodents, direct contact with infected rodents, and (rarely) by rodent bites.

Leptospirosis: Symptoms of Leptospirosis include high fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting jaundice, red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rash. It should be noted that these symptoms can be mistaken for other illnesses and that some infected patients may not have symptoms. After a first phase of the illness, there may be a second phase that is more severe and results in kidney or liver failure or meningitis. About 90% of cases are the mild form and are not fatal.

It is transmitted by eating food or drinking water contaminated with urine from infected animals, including rats. It is also spread by contact through the skin or mucous membranes with water or soil contaminated with urine from infected animals, including rats.
