Everything You Need To Know About Common Pests & Pest Management!
There are several DIY pest control and mouse removal techniques available today, both offline and online. With the economy and household bills growing by the day, it is logical for homeowners to consider performing their pest control and eradication.
So why wouldn't you do it yourself? Why spend money you may not have to employ a professional mouse removal and pest control company?
Pesticides are poisonous
Although this is not the only reason you should avoid conducting pest control as a Do-It-Yourself enthusiast, it is an excellent cause to think carefully about. The majority of pesticides are harmful. Although not as deadly as arsenic, it is toxic enough to cause serious health problems if handled incorrectly. Instead, here are some home solutions that may help you cope with the situation until you can contact a professional to remove the mouse infestation.
That lovely, fresh perfume of peppermint may smell wonderful to humans, but it doesn't work so well for mice. They despise it. (Some repellant garbage bags presently available are scented with peppermint). Place some peppermint oil on cotton balls and place them at potential access points such as kitchen cabinets and entryways. Mice will flee your house as a result of this. You may even grow mint around the outside of your house to keep them away totally. That's effective, gorgeous, and helpful (as you can always use a mint leaf as a topping on your chocolate cake... Just be cautious where you discard the cake if you don't eat it since mice like cake.)
Used Kitty Litter
This is an excellent example! Natural adversaries are cats and mice. Mice, understandably, do not like to share space with cats; therefore, anytime they believe that a cat may be around, they will flee. Farmers recommend putting used cat litter around possible access sites. The mice will practically flee as soon as they smell the cat pee.
You've undoubtedly figured out by now that addressing probable access sites is a significant help in keeping mice out of your house. In many circumstances, you may attempt fixing holes and gaps that mice use as entryways with various materials. Steel wool is the most useful since mice dislike it. They will either try to locate a new access point or move on since they cannot chew through the substance (it hurts their teeth). And if they do chew it, it will not be good for their stomachs.
These are only three basic home cures you might attempt if you have a mouse infestation. However, if none of this works or your situation is severe, you should contact a professional exterminator who will do the job correctly the first time. They have expertise and access to trade tools that you do not. They can even help you with getting rid of other infestations like bed bugs, termites, cockroaches, and more.
