It is best to contact rat control Burlington in the Greater Toronto Area to declare your home rat-free as soon as possible!

Hantavirus: a potentially life-threatening disease that humans can catch from rodents. They get infected by exposure to urine and infected droppings, usually through inhalation. The rat’s saliva can also carry this disease so don’t try cuddling with rats. The chance of getting these diseases increases dramatically when the animals are in your house. 

Bubonic Plague: who wants painfully swollen lymph nods! No one? That’s what I thought. If you want a terrible fever and headache while slowly dying then play with rats. If not, then don’t go near them.

Salmonellosis: this kind of food poisoning is spread from rodent feces. When humans eat contaminated food they experience diarrhea, fever and abdominal pain. That’s why you need professionals when you have a rat problem.
