From Pest Management in Fort Wayne: Watch out for Uninvited Guests


During the cold months, nothing is more tempting to a rodent than the warmth of a human home. Professional pest management in Fort Wayne warns homeowners about finding signs of rodent activity at this time of year. The Daily Record shares some tips on how to evict these uninvited guests and keep them away safely.

Rats bearing disease

When working in suspected rat-infested areas, be sure to wear a protective mask and gloves. These unwanted houseguests leave a deadly souvenir in their droppings which is the Hantavirus. The disease manifests itself as flu-like symptoms and could lead to death. Other diseases that originate from rat waste matter include Leptospirosis and Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis. Even the hair they shed can trigger allergies and chronic attacks in asthma sufferers. Clean the area with a bleach-based cleaner repeatedly and ventilate the area to ensure the area is disease-free.
