Common Health Problems Caused Due To Pest Infestation
Are there any pests moving around inside your home? If yes, then you are in a potential danger of falling victim to a serious disease or ailment. Pest infestation is greatly responsible for degrading the cleanliness and hygiene within a property. This ultimately leads to a breakout of microbes, bacteria and viruses which pose a bad effect and cause a myriad of nasty illnesses that can even turn out to be fatal, if left untreated.
Some of the health issues caused by pests are:
- Salmonella, Dysentery & Gastroenteritis
These three illnesses are associated with cockroach infestation inside a home or office. Since roaches live in drains and other bad spaces, they can be blamed for carrying severe microbes and disease causing agents. They can be easily spotted moving over the food items or kitchen utensils which leads to contamination of food sources.
This spreading of germs can be further deteriorated if you are also facing flies infestation. Salmonella, dysentery and gastroenteritis are serious diseases with symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, nausea and other intestinal problems. The only way to prevent the outbreak of these diseases is pest proofing your property by calling pest exterminators.
It is a typically rare health condition which is caused by rodent droppings, urine and saliva. Whenever a person gets in contact with the rat’s waste that is infected by microbes, there are risks of falling victim to Hantavirus. The symptoms that accompany this rare disease are fever and haemorrhage. In the worst case scenarios, where the condition is identified at a later stage, renal failure can also occur.
If there is any bird infestation inside your home, don’t take the matter easy. Alike other pests, birds can also be blamed for causing severe health ailments like e.coli and listeria. These diseases usually occur if the water consumed by a person is infected with bird droppings. In the other scenario, if the waste and urinated of birds isn’t cleared away from a yard or property, it can accumulate dust to induce respiratory infections and disorders like pneumonia.
- Weil’s Disease
Most probably, rats and mice are responsible for causing this ill health condition which arise due to continuation of water with rodents’ urine. It is a rare disease and can be witnessed in agricultural spaces. The infected urine combines with water to enter inside the human body through eyes, mouth, nose, ears or wounds. It can cause serious ailments like meningitis or liver damage.
