Rat Bite Fever

Rat bite fever is a dangerous disease spread by rodents and their droppings. The disease can be potentially fatal in small children and older people and there has been a significant increase in incidence in recent years.


Rodent droppings infected by the hantavirus can cause life-threatening illness in people of all ages. The virus spreads via feces. The best form of protection against the virus is to remove rodents from the home using professional rodent removal services.

On-Going Infestation

Without effective removal of feces from the San Antonio home, an infestation can occur. Rodents will smell the feces and recognize the area is safe for their return again and again until the feces and all elements of infestation are removed. This means that to prevent their home being overrun by rodents over the long-term, property owners should review local area San Antonio rodent removal services.
