What diseases do squirrels carry? Squirrels are pesky little animals that like to get into everything. They can easily climb up some rather steep inclines and their fleet of foot makes them one of the more fun animals to watch. They can be quite enjoyable for sure. While they may be fun and entertaining, the squirrel also does pose some health risks to humans, but a lot less than many would suppose. There are many that tell of how squirrels pose a serious health risks to human beings, but the truth is that these animals do not carry many illnesses that human beings need to worry about.
Of course the primary one that is most dangerous to human beings is rabies. About 12 percent of squirrels within any area carry the disease, and that is enough of a concern to be worried if you come in contact with them. The thing is that not all the squirrels that carry this disease carry the type that is dangerous to human beings. This even further reduces the risk that one could be facing should they be bit by one of these animals.
Of course, if you are bit by one, then you should get checked out right away. You cannot take the risk of not being looked at right away, because if you do not get treated and you do have the disease, you really only have about 24 hours to begin the treatment or you will not be saved. Death from rabies is horrific, so you need to be smart.
The squirrel itself does not pose as much danger to you as its feces does. There are some serious diseases that can be transmitted from the squirrel droppings to human beings. This includes such things as salmonella and Leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is a bacteria that causes flu-like symptoms and severe headaches. If not treated its effects can be quite serious, even to the point of death. The most severe cases of this illness will eventually lead to internal bleeding and hear failure.
Salmonella is most often associated with food poisoning, but that is not the only instance where it can be found. This disease is also found in squirrel feces, and if a human being comes in contact with the droppings they are in danger of catching the disease. This can also be quite serious and can lead to death if not treated properly. This is especially dangerous to those that are very young and very old.
