More Information on Mice and Rats

Rodents can pose a serious threat to human health and can transmit disease to humans by a variety of means, including:

  • Contamination of food or utensils with rodent urine or faeces.
  • Contamination by direct contact with urine or faeces, where bacteria enter the skin through small scratches.
  • Indirect contamination via blood-sucking insects (i.e. ectoparasites such as fleas).
  • Indirect contamination via pets to humans.
  • Contamination by directly biting humans.
  • Indirect contamination by being eaten by an intermediate carrier.

The presence of rats the mice in buildings pose a serious threat to human health. The disease threat alone is justifiable cause for concern and for the implementation of sound control procedures.
