  1. 1. Deadly Dozen and Then Some: Diseases Transmitted by Rodents www.earth-kind.com 1.800.583.2921
  2. 2. Mice & rats carry over 35 known diseases that can be passed to people such as: • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome • Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis • Lassa Fever • Leptospirosis • Murine Typhus • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM) • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever • Powassan Encephalitis a.

  3. 3. How Diseases from Rodents are Spread Direct Contact: touching a rodent, being bit by a rodent, or coming into contact with a rodent's feces, urine, saliva or hair/dander. Indirect Contact: usually results from being bitten by a flea, tick, mite or mosquito that has also bitten an infected rodent. Protecting yourself from any contact with rodents, direct or indirect, is challenging. Rodent feces, urine, saliva, hair, and dander are very small and hard to notice until you have already been exposed. Avoiding indirect contact is even more challenging as fleas, ticks, mites, and mosquitoes are very common and difficult to control. If you have pets, fleas, ticks and mites can threaten them as well. www.earth-kind.com 1.800.583.2921
  4. 4. Preventing Rodent Infestations is the Key to Protecting Against Rodent Disease Preventing rodent infestation is the best way to protect against the diseases they may carry. Fresh Cab® Natural Rodent Repellent is a form of pet safe mouse control that will prevent contact with rodents. Fresh Cab repels rats and mice so you won't risk any exposure, such as removing trapped rodents. Fresh Cab is made with natural ingredients so it is completely safe to use, especially around pets. www.earth-kind.com 1.800.583.2921
  5. 5. Fresh Cab Use Tips: • RV: Use 3 pouches for up to 30 ft. Place near water tank, drains, slide-outs and cushions. In addition, place a pouch in each storage compartment below to protect against nesting in those areas. • Garage: Use 4 pouches for up to a double garage. Place near doors and in corners. Replace every 30-45 days • Home: Use 1 in an entryway, pantry or closet. Use in mouse prone areas like vents that open to the outside (i.e. dryer vent, attic vent, etc.). Place a pouch under the sinks and behind appliances (rodents like to travel along pipes) • Auto: Use 1 in the trunk, 1 under each seat, and 1 under the hood if it storage (be careful to remove pouch under hood before driving). Replace when scent has diminished. • Drop Ceilings, sub-floors, crawl spaces: Use 1 pouch per 8 sq. feet, replace in 30 days to prevent reinfestation. • Storage Sheds: Use 4 pouches, place in corners, behind stored items, by entry points and in hard-to-reach places where rodents tend to nest. www.earth-kind.com 1.800.583.2921
