When you have an infestation of rodents in your attic or other crawl space you have a serious problem. Not only do rats and mice eat into your insulation, they also, quite naturally, produce feces and urine which soaks into the insulation and can – cause serious health problems.
Breathing in air which contains dust impregnated with rodent urine or feces can cause HPS, a disease which causes stomach problems, shortness of breath, fever, headaches and muscle cramps, and can prove fatal. It can cause leptospirosis which can lead to kidney and liver damage, meningitis, respiratory problems, and can also be fatal. In addition, there is LCM which can lead to brain damage requiring surgery.
However much of an animal lover you may be, if you have rodents in your attic you need them out of there fast.
The first thing to tackle is the point or points of entry of rats and mice they only need a hole the size of a quarter to get into your home, and once they do they set about making themselves as comfortable as they can. One of their pleasures is destroying your insulation, so not only will they spread disease they will help to make your house colder in winter and hotter in summer. They will also happily eat your electrical wiring, and once in your attic have free run of your wall voids and air conditioning ducts.
