Mice and rats are carriers of disease. Some diseases, like the hantavirus, are spread by contact with the urine and droppings. Breathing dust raised during the cleanup of droppings can cause illness, therefore it is important to practice safe cleanup procedures.

Safe Cleanup

  • Never sweep or vacuum dry droppings.
  • Dampen droppings and debris with a bleach and water solution before wiping up.
  • Rubber gloves and a dust mask should be worn during cleanup.
  • Wash hands and exposed clothing thoroughly after cleanup.
  • Wear gloves to dispose of dead rodents.
  • Wrap dead rodents in a plastic bag and put in the garbage, or hazardous disposal site.
