How is the attic the right place for insect nests?
In reality, if you notice the presence of wasp nests or other insects in your attics,it is obviously for several reasons. So here are some of them.
Your attic, a source of special security for insects and rodents
Insects, like any other living being, need a minimum of security for their development. This is also the main reason for their coming to your attic. By taking refuge there, they are convinced that they are safe from all possible disasters. In other words, your home allows them to protect themselves from cold, rain and other bad weather. In addition, the attic is a much easier place for them to access.
In addition, these insects are afraid of the human being and that is why they are forced to find a place quite far away. This leads them directly to your attic. It goes without saying that this place represents for them a peaceful and tranquil home.
Your attic, a source of food for insects
For their natural growth, these insects necessarily need to feed. This is also one of the reasons why they targeted your home. In fact, it is a place that allows them to eat well. For the construction of their nest or habitat, they use materials, cardboard or paper that are stored in your attic.
On the other hand, the light, temperature, and dampness that your home exudes are factors that can lead them to find refuge in your attic. All these elements allow them to be safe and grow easily.
Hantavirus, definition and mode of transmission
Hantavirus is a severe lung syndrome caused by a virus. It is secreted in the urine, feces and saliva of infected animals. Most often these are rodents. When humans come into direct or indirect contact with these secretions, the virus is transmitted to them. Ditto when they are bitten by infected rodents.
However, the virus is not transmitted from human to human, only from animal to human. This type of disease is called zoonoses because they can only be transmitted to humans through an animal. It has been found that domestic animals (apart from the domestic rat) and livestock cannot contract hantavirus so there is every reason to believe that only rodents can carry it.
Symptoms of hantavirus
Being a lung disease, one of the characteristic symptoms of hantavirus is difficulty breathing. At the beginning of the disease, the infected person begins to feel fever, chills, headache and muscle pain.
It is about two weeks after the appearance of the first symptoms that they are usually accompanied by a feeling of shortness of breath. Nevertheless, this last manifestation of the disease can be observed after two days as after six weeks; it depends on the organism of the individual.
Hantavirus can also lead to kidney disease or infection. And although they are rare and very few people are prone to them, there is currently no treatment to combat these ailments. It is therefore better to be careful not to contract them.
