Rodent Feces & Excrements (Rodent Droppings)

Rodent droppings (mice or rat droppings) are not something you should just sweep or vacuum up yourself, or without further decontamination. If you find rodent droppings chances are good that rodent urine and saliva are also present and the animal is most likely to return, so proper rat or mice poop cleanup is required.

Recently, rodents and their feces were found to carry Hantavirus, an infection that cause people to contract Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) which can be a fatal respiratory disease caused by rodents.

Rodent feces in attics often infect the insulation and ductwork that can quickly spread Hantavirus throughout your home. Scurrying noises from the attic or when you enter your garage are a clear indication that rodents have taken residence in your home. Rodents also cause significant damage to stored items by gnawing on fabrics, food containers and even electrical cables. To further exacerbate the issue, the nests and droppings of the rodents become favorite breeding sites for insects that can carry their own diseases into you property.

Health Risks of Rodent Droppings

  • Hantavirus –  Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome is a sometimes-fatal respiratory disease in humans caused by rodents.
  • Bubonic Plague – Is not yet eradicated and spread by the bite of a rodent infected flea.
  • Salmonellosis – Food poisoning through consumption of contaminated food caused by rodents and feces.
  • Rat-Bite Fever – RBF is spread by infected rodents or consuming food contaminated by them.
