Hantavirus – caution needed…

A recent story in the news brings to light – the caution needed when doing work in crawlspaces or attic areas. If you live in the Southwest you need to be aware of hantavirus – “Adams County, CO man dies of hantavirus“.

 

Urine or feces which if dried, can be inhaled and brought into your lungs and then the symptoms  really begin – they include fever, chills, headache & severe muscle pain, especially in the lower back and legs.

DANGEROUS

Improper and dangerous method to eradicate rodents.

I now understand why the EPA wants to take away these products from consumers. Not all consumers are this reckless. This is dangerous, what if a child ran across this bait while on a walk.

DANGEROUS is about all I can say!

Rodent Awareness Week – November 16-22, 2014

I think all of us have seen the cartoons of “Tom & Jerry” and “Speedy Gonzales” and the cuteness of the mice etc but they should be feared if they get into your home. We should be aware that letting rodents, mammals and or birds take up residence within our homes can lead to other problems. If we fail to notice or just let them in we could have secondary pests like fleas or ticks, when we eventually get rid of them. I recently had someone call who had bats in a log home and after they excluded the bats they were left with some nasty batbugs similar to bedbugs.

U of A November 2014 newsletter

The University of Arizona provides a very handy newsletter and this month November is right on target. “Rodents: Get them out of your school, house and yard.

 

I’ve had people say well it’s only 1 mouse or rat, but let me tell you one is enough and should be dealt with ASAP if not sooner. Home-sealing is the best method to keep these little pest out of your home.

Interesting packrat nesting

At this time of year due to the cooler nights some of the mammals will try to enter structures. They don’t know any different than this looks like a cave or tree hole.

So don’t make your home or business look like their home. Seal any holes or access points and stop them from getting in. They will x0ollect leaves, twigs and anything that will help to keep them warm.
