The news spoke about it, the newspapers wrote about it and we too have had our say on the dreaded Coronavirus.
None or very few, and rarely, deal with the issue of the very serious consequences that can be caused by an infestation of mice and rats.
Mice and rats are present on our planet in far greater numbers than humans.
The species of mice and rats in which it is more frequent to come across are:
These three different species of mice and rats are invaders of the spaces we live in daily and their presence can cause serious damage from a health, economic, safety and reputation point of view.
Analyzing the health aspect we can list below only some of the diseases that can be transmitted by mice and rats:
Salmonella, Typhoid fever, Weil disease, Typhus, Antavirus, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM), Plague, Tularemia, Leptospirosis.
The transmission can take place through contact with the animal itself, through contact with organic remains left by mice and rats on food, objects or clothing, through inhalation of remains of faecal material and in various other ways.
The mice and rats also cause structural damage because for their physical conformation they have the continuous need to gnaw in order to sharpen the teeth that grow enormously. These structural damages can in turn create safety problems (short circuits, fires, etc.).
An infestation of mice and rats also has a negative impact on people and can cause serious damage to the image of companies with significant economic consequences.
The final consequence to be analyzed, and not in order of importance, due to an infestation by mice and rats is the psychological damage that can cause on individuals who develop trauma and phobias.
