Rat Virus is Rapidly Spreading

Although you may think your pet rat is harmless, it could be carrying a scary new virus. Your pet could be making you very sick, without you even realizing it. Humans can be infected through exposure to infectious body fluids (blood, saliva, urine), exposure to aerosolized rat feces, or bites from infected rats.

Seoul Virus is a rat- borne virus, similar to the flu. With the same symptoms, (fever, headache, muscle pain) can affect not only rats, but humans as well. This is the first ever break out in the United States or Canada, which resulted in the virus spreading swiftly across 11 states. CDC investigators are still trying to figure out where the virus rooted from, and if any other people are being affected. The investigators tracked the outbreak to 31 different US locations, mostly homes with pet rats, or rat breeders.

To prevent this virus infection and any other diseases rats may carry, wash hands with hot soapy water after coming in contact with rodents. Be sure to clean rodents habitat’s often, ensuring that all dropping and urine are not present for extended periods of time. Everyone’s goal over the duration of the winter months is to stay warm…including wildlife. Bats are one of these animals that seek a warm place to stay. Don’t let your home be the hangout spot for neighborhood bats! Continue reading for our top tricks to keep bats out.

Top Ways Pests Could be Entering your Home

It’s hard to tell when or how pests enter your home, but they’ll always manage their way inside. With the cold weather still here, these unwanted critters nuzzle their way in, looking for a warm place to stay. Frequently check these places to ensure your home is as pest-free as possible.

  1. Chimneys- Keep your chimney chap clean. If you don’t have one, consider investing in one. Birds, squirrels, and raccoons can easily sneak their way in.
  2. Windows- Make sure that your windows are kept closed, and that there are no holes in the screening.
  3. Siding- Check the foundation on the sides of your home. Seal up the gaps that create any openings.
  4. Roofs- Check roofs and rafters often, as small unwanted pests can squeeze their way in. Check for evidence in the form of droppings. Mice produce small black-grey droppings approximately the size of a large grain of rice.
