DANGERS DIET SIGNS OF INFESTATION PREVENTION
Rodents can carry more than 35 diseases posing a danger to humans, according to The Centers for Disease Control. These diseases can be contracted by encountering rodent feces, saliva, urine, being bitten, or handling a rodent. Rats and mice can also indirectly spread disease through fleas, mites, or ticks that have fed on an infected rodent. Rodent-borne diseases include salmonellosis, rat-bite fever, hantavirus, and bubonic plague. Mice and rats do have certain preferences, but they will eat any type of food they can find. It is generally a misconception that they eat inedible materials such as wiring or wood. They chew or gnaw these materials to sharpen their teeth or create nests. Even if you have not seen a rat or mouse, there are telltale signs of their presence. These include droppings found along baseboards, in box or bags, or near where food is stored or prepared, such as kitchen pantries, drawers, cabinets, or bins. You may notice chewed spots or holes in food packages like pasta, grain products, and pet food bags. You may also hear rodents as they are nesting or moving around, especially at night.

- Don’t give pests access to your food. Keep your kitchen clear of crumbs, and store cereals and grains in sealed containers that can’t be chewed through.
