Even though mice aren’t a lovely sight around the house, they’re still much better than seeing a rat in your home. Rats are dangerous for your overall health and can wreak havoc around the house, biting wires, digging holes and destroying everything they set their mind to. They can appear everywhere where there’s food, even crumbs can attract them which is why it’s important to keep your house clean and crumbs free at all times if you want to avoid this problem.
If you’re having rodent troubles and you simply can’t find a way to get rid of them, here are a few effective solutions which will help you keep them out of your house:
The best solutions for rodent infestation
If you have rodents you can try using mousetraps. Place them around the house, in the corners and lay in wait.
- Ultrasonic mice scavengers
Nowadays, these devices have become more and more popular. The ultrasound fills out the whole room and the rodents are unable to stand it and will run off. This sound cannot harm us and we cannot hear it.
- Special rodent glue
This glue needs to be applied onto a bigger cardboard and the mice will easily glue onto it and it will be prevented from moving. This is the perfect method if you noticed more than one mouse because it enables you to trap all of them at once.
Sprinkle it throughout your home, especially in the area where you have noticed the mice. They will get away because they cannot stand the smell of peppermint.
- Hot pepper flakes
Distribute them all over the home and you can additionally mix tiny parmesan cheese pieces, that mouse prefer to eat. The actual mice will certainly eat the peppers and should never return.
- Hot Spices
Just as with the hot spice flakes, spread some hot sauce around the house. Rodents cannot tolerate hot spices and this will keep them at bay.
- Cats as pets
Some cats are lazier than others, so, whether your cat will get the job done or not is questionable. If your cat is unable to ‘help you’, borrow your friend’s or neighbor’s cat and see how it goes.
