Please familiarise yourself with these facts!.
Weil's disease can be carried in water contaminated with rats' urine.

Weil's disease,is the acute human form of a bacterial infection with a raft of different names: mud fever, swamp fever, haemorrhagic jaundice, swineherd's disease, sewerman's flu. All are known as Leptospirosis, mild cases of which affect millions of people every year worldwide.

The infection is caught through contact with infected animal urine (mainly from rodents, cattle or pigs), generally in contaminated water, and typically enters the body through cuts or scrapes, or the lining of the nose, mouth, throat or eyes. Only a very few patients experience the severe, life-threatening illness known as Weil's disease, thought to kill two or three people a year in Britain.

After an incubation period that can vary from three days to three weeks, most patients suffer severe headaches, red eyes, muscle pains, fatigue, nausea and a temperature of 39C or above. In roughly a third of cases there is a skin rash; sometimes hallucinations.

In very severe cases, symptoms include haemorrhaging from the mouth, eyes and internally. There is significant and rapid organ damage: liver and kidney failure can occur within 10 days, leading to jaundice (these are the only cases that can properly be called Weil's disease). Hospitalisation, followed by antibiotics and often dialysis, will be required if the patient is to survive. Recovery can take months.

According to British Rowing, the risk of contracting Weil's disease from recreational water in the UK is "very small". Infection is logically more likely in slow-moving or stagnant water and areas where agriculture and rodents mix; lakes, ponds and canals are more likely to be contaminated than fast-running streams, although some activities angling, for example, where minor cuts and nicks are common, and swimming, where some water will almost inevitably enter the mouth could heighten exposure.

Anglers,Rowers and canoeists should cover all cuts and abrasions; avoid splashing themselves, or swallowing potentially contaminated water; wash their hands carefully and if possible shower afterwards; and wash all equipment and clothing regularly. Anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms after contact with fresh water should see their doctor immediately.

Taken from medical texts....
Symptoms develop normally from 7 to 14 days after contact with the infection but they can develop in as little as three days or as long as 30 days

First Phase
The disease hits people suddenly, starting with flu like symptoms including muscle pain, nausea and a fever higher than 102 degrees F. Severe headaches also accompany the first phase, hitting suddenly with the pressure and pain of a migraine. In about one-third of all leptospirosis, the individual infected will develop a rash. This rash is similar in appearance to that which is caused by meningitis. It will appear red with a series of pin*****ed-shaped valleys.
The bacteria is alive in the bloodstream during this time period. In mild cases, the disease will be fought by white blood cells and kept at bay. In severe cases, the blood-borne bacteria could cause the body to go into septic shock.
The first phase will often last 3 to 5 days.
Second Phase
The second window of the disease does not open in mild cases. Typically restricted to moderate to severe cases of leptospirosis, a second phase will usually manifest itself after 2 to 3 days of apparent recovery. This second stage is usually more aggressive, with the return of the fever, headache and muscle pain, as well as pain in the upper torso and additional symptoms that mimic meningitis--neck stiffness, vomiting and kidney issues.
Mild cases will clear up completely in 3 to 5 weeks.
Signs of Severity
In more serious cases, people with leptospirosis can expect severe, and oftentimes, fatal, organ trauma. Jaundice will onset, indicative of liver and kidney failure. The bacteria will also cause infections in the heart and cause massive internal bleeding.
Individuals in poor health will see the disease onset and progress much quicker, with death an almost certainty.

A couple of years ago I was in hospital with a very serious infection in my Gall bladder, I had to go into a CT Scanner where a surgeon put a drain pipe into my bladder which was left in for 4 weeks, I was then cut open to remove my bladder, a couple of weeks later I was back in hospital with a Liver infection, I remember as if it was a few minutes ago, the Doctor asked me if I had been in contact with Rats, I had to tell him I go Fishing, I was scared to death having remembered what happened to Ken, my blood was sent to the lab for a Micro Biology. it seemed to take an age before the results came back, I was clear of Weills disease, I had received Liver damage when I had my Gall bladder removed, I have never liked rats and I like them even less now, I carry a small air pistol(where allowed) and have potted a few but I never leave bait out, I have also become hand wash mad, I have always got 3/4 bottles of hand gel and also carry a bottle of anti-bacterial wash with me and clean my hands after everything I touch.

Odd, isn't it! A guy from Australian using a forum name of a past US president, spamming an as yet unnamed rat/pest control service.

You can live with them. I cannot. Buy some proper traps and catch them and kill them. Putting food down for them is madness.

If you're putting food down as a trap, as you said, and you miss with the catapult, you are really feeding them?
Best policy with rats is, don't leave any food around for them, unless it is a proper trap. Keep all bags and zips fastened properly. Rats, don't usually hang around for too long if no food is available.

I take a tub of big wipes when i fish now, they combat a lot of nasties including Weils Disease

So you're feeding them to encourage them infront of your bivvy just so you can catapult stones at them?

Surely you're better using a proper trap otherwise you're just feeding them.

we all take our uneaten food and rubbish away with us anyway, (or should do!) youll never beat the rats just have to live with it, no one can help it dropping a bit of bait particle whatever in the swim specially during a long session! i sit in my bivvy and set a bait trap for the little ****ers, they love nuts and boilies, when they make the dash in front of me they get it with my pult, small pebble like stones are perfect, mind you ive blanked on that issue too!

I have still not recovered full liver and kidney function 11 YEARS later! Doc has warned me that this could shorten my life so I live every day like it is my last! Trouble is, my body feels weak and feeble most of the time and it is hard just to work up the enthusiasm!
