Mint Can Serve as Control for Mice

Environment,Home Improvement,Health
Mice control tops the list as one of the most costly and damaging pest control issues in the United States. Mice can not only survive in many environments, but thrive in them as well. In fact, a female mouse can have as many as 100 baby mice in one year. Mice consume our food and contaminate our food sources also. Mice cause structural damage by gnawing on wooden door frames or through walls, and are known carriers of many diseases. Mice removal is big business, but before you find yourself in need of extermination services, let's see what you can do to prevent mice from ever plaguing your home in the first place

Mouse Proofing and Mice Control 101 Means of Entry: Mice can squeeze through a hole as small as a quarter of an inch in diameter. Sealing up broken screens, gaps in the windows, and cracks in the foundation will help deter these pests. Copper mesh or steel wool mixed with caulking are good hole-fillers because mice cannot chew through them. Sanitation: Having mice doesn't mean your home is dirty, but poor sanitation is a quick way to make certain mice come to call. Easy food, like scraps left on floors, crumbs under the furniture, and wrappers left on the floor overnight are all fodder for a hungry mouse. Good mice control also means keeping garbage away from your house and moving potential habitats, like wood piles and debris, at least 50 feet from your home’s exterior. Basically, you don't want to make your home or yard any more attractive than it already is to a mouse. This means no easy food or ready-to-order habitats to ruin your mice control attempts. Repelling: Surrounding the exterior of your home with certain plants, like mint, can help with mice control by warding off the pest. Using mint oil or crushed mint leaves on strategic areas of the home, like pantries, is another useful trick. Sprinkling used cat litter around the foundation of your home is another mouse control idea; mice will instantly detect the scent of a cat and know that this is not the place for them. Cats: If you were already in the market for something soft and cuddly, then now may be the time to look at getting a cat. Cats can be a great form of mice control, even if they do not actively catch many of the mice. Just the scent of the feline and natural fear of the cat may be enough to hold back the mouse and his or her family. Food Storage: Properly storing your food is not only a useful mice control method, but it is also a great way to keep all kinds of creepy crawlies away. Using sealed storage containers for your grains is a good place to start. If the mice cannot smell the food, they are less likely to ever attempt to come into your home in the first place.
