Health hazards caused by rats
Rats can transmit diseases including salmonellosis (food poisoning) and leptospirosis (Weil’s disease). Weil’s disease is a potentially fatal illness caused by bacteria, which can be spread via rat urine to water such as ponds and canals, where it can stay infectious for months.
Health hazards caused by mice
Mice can also spread pathogenic micro-organisms onto food or food-contact surfaces via their feet and bodies, in their droppings, and in their urine, which constantly leaks out.
