If you’re serious about protecting your family’s health, you need to be serious about Hantavirus protection. Los Angeles’ Rodents Stop is an industry expert in rodent extermination and rodent removal – and can help stop the spread of the deadly Hantavirus in your home or place of business. Most people think of mice and rats in their home or office as a pest – getting into food, nesting in your home and leaving their waste behind. But many do not understand the very serious threat that mice and rats can pose to humans and other animals. Rodents are hosts to hundreds of diseases and parasites, but the deadliest of these is Hantavirus.
How Hantavirus Can Hurt You
Hantaviruses are RNA viruses that are easily transmitted to humans from rodents. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a disease that occurs in late-stage infections and causes congestion, fluid in the lungs and shortness of breath. Sadly, death occurs in approximately 38 percent of all people exposed to Hantavirus. The primary carriers of Hantavirus are mice and rats. Early symptoms feel like a common flu – fatigue, fever and muscle aches. Exposure to rodents in your home, especially their urine and feces, is especially dangerous. Since mice and rats tend to leave their dropping everywhere, you can see how easy it would be to be exposed to their viruses in your home or office. Just imagine a baby crawling on the floor, not realizing that mouse, which has been living in your house unseen, has been contaminating your home with it’s feces. The thought is chilling – and it should be. Even scarier is the fact that there is no known cure or specific treatment for Hantavirus. There is no vaccine against the virus. Patients are typically treated in an intensive-care unit and often have to be placed on breathing machines in hopes that their lungs heal. If you have mice and rats in your home, this is a risk you are taking with your health and your family’s health.
