Rat Allergies and House Safety
While wildlife should be appreciated and respected, it should also be kept at a distance from yourself and your property. Wild species are not domesticated and do not receive the same level of veterinary care that pets do, meaning that the animals might have viruses and bacteria that are dangerous to people. Rodents, especially, are prone to disease and can transport bacteria into and around homes, which is why homeowners are encouraged to contact wildlife control Kitchener if they suspect a rodent problem. Many people can misconstrue allergies within the home or around their property as seasonal, but while that is often the case, certain instances of allergic reactions can stem from rodents, particularly rats. The remainder of this blog will focus on common dwelling places of rats, how the animal can contribute to allergies and common symptoms of exposure to rats.
