Hantavirus is caused by a virus that is carried primarily by deer mice. The infected rodents excrete the virus in their urine, droppings and saliva. People are infected by inhaling airborne particles of the virus or by direct contact with rodents, their droppings or nests.

Precautions:

Open doors or windows to provide good ventilation for 30 to 60 minutes before cleaning out structures. Avoid stirring up dust by watering down areas with a mixture of 1 part bleach and 10 parts water. Wear gloves.

Rodent-proof buildings by plugging holes or other mouse entryways.

In rural areas, conduct year-round rodent control using traps or poisons, or hire a professional exterminator. Don’t wait until the mouse population spikes.

Keep indoor areas clean, especially kitchens. Store food in rodent-proof containers. This includes pet, livestock and bird food. Properly dispose of garbage in sealed containers.



Plague is carried by fleas that live on rodents such as mice, squirrels, chipmunks and prairie dogs. Their fleas can jump onto dogs or cats, thus infecting those animals or carrying fleas into your home.

Precautions:

Avoid handling dead animals.

Keep your pets out of rodent burrows or from playing with dead animals. This includes keeping cats from hunting potentially sick rodents.

Avoid feeding rodents; keep food, pet food and bird feed in rodent-proof containers.

Talk to your veterinarian about flea control for your pets, and signs and symptoms of plague in your animals.
