Dangers of Rodents & Diseases They Transfer to Humans in Sacramento

Rodents may be small, but they can cause significant problems for both homeowners and business owners. They come inside in search of food and shelter and, once there, can be very difficult to get rid of. Rodents cause massive amounts of physical damage to your home or business, chewing through wooden support beams and insulation, eating food in your pantry, destroying furniture, fabrics, books, and papers. They are even capable of chewing through electrical wiring, which can not only cause a power outage, but can put your property in danger of facing a fire. Along with these damages, rodents may also carry a number of different diseases, many of which can be transmitted to humans.

Tularemia is a disease that can be directly or indirectly transmitted to humans. Transmission occurs when someone breathes in contaminated dust, handles a dead rodent, or is bitten by an insect that has previously bitten an infected rodent. Symptoms vary, and depend upon how the disease is transmitted. It can cause issues such as fever, skin ulcers, inflammation of the eyes, coughing, chest pain, and swollen lymph nodes.


Leptospirosis is transmitted to humans through consuming food or water contaminated by rodent urine or droppings, or if the bacteria come into contact with mucous membranes (including open wounds). It is often mistaken for other illnesses, because the symptoms (fever, chills, headaches, rashes, abdominal pain, jaundice) mimic other health issues. While many people experience only a few symptoms, leptospirosis can sometimes turn into Weil’s disease. Symptoms of this disease are more serious, consisting of internal bleeding and organ failure.


Hantavirus is transmitted through inhaling dust contaminated by rodent urine and droppings, consuming contaminated food or water, or by handling a dead, infected rodent. It has two stages. The first stage generally begins to exhibit symptoms one to five weeks following exposure. An affected individual may experience fever, muscle aches and fatigue. Untreated, the second stage usually starts four to ten days after the first stage (and can also lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome). The second stage is more serious, and has symptoms such as coughing and shortness of breath. These symptoms point to the lungs filling with fluid, which can ultimately result in severe respiratory distress.

Salmonellosis, caused by the salmonella bacterium, is usually associated with raw meat. This bacterium can also be carried by rodents. It is spread to humans by way of consuming food or water contaminated by rodent urine or droppings. Symptoms usually consist of stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and a fever. For most healthy individuals, a full recovery is made with little issue. Those who have weaker immune systems, though (particularly young children and the elderly), may be faced with more serious problems if exposed to salmonella.

Bubonic Plague

When most people think about bubonic plague, they think about the mass pandemic that swept across Europe and wiped out approximately one third of the human population. While the disease is carried by rodents, it is usually transmitted indirectly by fleas. It is one of three plagues (the others are septicemic and pneumonic). Symptoms of bubonic plague include fever, chills, and swollen (painful) lymph nodes.

Rate-Bite Fever

Rat-bite fever (RBF can be caused by one of two different bacteria. Streptobacillary rat-bite fever is caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis, while Spirillary rat-bite fever is caused by Spirillum minus. Both strains are transmitted through direct contact, whether by a rodent bite or scratch, or by consuming food or water contaminated by rodent urine and/or droppings. The symptoms for each illness, however, are different. Symptoms of Streptobacillary RBF consist of rashes, headaches, fever, and muscle and joint pain. Spirillary RBF is characterized by rashes, swelling near injury site (if applicable), and swollen lymph nodes. Treatment of this disease is essential, as more serious complications such as heart infections, brain infections, or pneumonia may result.
