You might feel that mice are rather harmless and that rats are a bigger problem but actually mice are more common and cause much more damage. Since mice breed speedily and constantly a small problem can turn into a big one very fast, so dealing with infiltration should be on an urgent basis. |
Mice are unhygienic and their droppings are potential asthma triggers for children. They also infect food through their droppings and spread bacteria that may cause food poisoning. Mice reproduce quickly and can damage your house and furniture through their gnawing activities. They have also been known to cause house fires after eating through electrical cables.
Between the possible health problems and the damaged goods and personal belongings, mice treatment London is extremely necessary. Homeowners have a variety of options to consider to get rid of mice but unlike bedbug treatment or ant treatment London, mice treatment London requires the use of more than one medium and cannot be done by simply spraying a pesticide.
You can make use of repellents like mint. Mice are said to hate mint, so growing mint in your backyard or spraying some around the house can be a good trick. Ultrasonic devices are also available. They work by producing a sound that mice and other rodents do not like, but studies have shown that over a period of time mice simply get used to it and start ignoring it altogether, making this technique unsuccessful.
Many traps are also available to catch mice in. The Snap Traps work by enticing mice with a small bait like cheese, and then killing them with an instant blow when the bait is taken, meanwhile Catch Traps just entice the mouse inside and lock them in. Electronic ‘Zapper’ Traps are also like catch traps except once the mouse is caught, it is given a fatal electrical shock. You can also make some homemade traps for inexpensive eradication like the The Homemade Bucket Trap or the Glue Board.
Poison is another option that you can use to kill the mice and is a very effective one. Unfortunately, unlike ant treatment London, it cannot be sprayed but has to be kept as bait for the mouse to consume. This can be extremely harmful for pets and children if they eat it. To bait mice, you can keep it in traps or at corners where you feel the mice are hiding for them to successfully consume it. If you choose to keep the poison in the open, there is a drawback that the poison does not take effect immediately and this means that you may find decaying mice in hard to find places.
Pets are also a great option to keep mice away from your house. Cats obviously are good at catching mice but tend to play with them, which may cause a mess. Surprisingly, dogs too are good mice catchers and if not kill them, they will definitely run them out of your home. Birds like the barn owl, not really a pet, but can be encouraged to nest in your garden or backyard and they can take care of any mice around your house effectively. While owning pets can help in preventing mice rom coming inside your house, they are not the solution for a mice infestation and professional help must be taken immediately.
