- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis

Even if the rodents in your property don’t currently have a disease, you likely still prefer it remain far away from your home. It is actually quite common for property owners to come across chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. Nothing will stop a rat and it will chew through anything on its way to food. Rats will gladly chew through a wall if they suspect food is awaiting them on the other side.
Rats and mice can fit through astoundingly small spaces so you should inspect your home thoroughly to determine any of these possible entry points.
