How to Repel Mice Naturally as Effective Pest Control

Home Improvement,Health,Environment
While it's pretty easy to trap mice, it would be much better to keep them from coming in in the first place. You can also opt for the pest control measures that act as an effective mouse deterrent.The trap will work well if you consider the safety measures for keeping them at home.

Getting rid of mice naturally is a big problem all year round for millions of unlucky residents living in there homes. The traditional mouse traps although effective, is sometimes dangerous when children and pets are present in your home. If your house has been infested with rats, then it is time to take immediate action for driving them away.

Here are the quick methods for preventing mice invasion

Mouse deterrent peppermint is is an age-old technique that acts as a wonderful mouse repellent. Rats and mice are sensitive towards the smell of peppermint oil. Dip a few cotton balls in peppermint oil and spread them on the place where mice are most likely to visit. You can also keep the peppermint soaked balls inside your wardrobe.

You can also prepare a mixture by combining peppermint leaves with peppermint oil, cayenne pepper, and cloves. Crush the leaves and cloves and add them into the oil. Keep this mixture in a wide mouth bottle or a bowl and place it in the corners of your house. In a few days you will notice that your house is free from rats.

Mice cannot tolerate the smell of ammonia. And therefore, you can use it as a repellent. Fill one or two bottles with ammonia and place the bottles in those places most visited by the rats. Loosely cap the bottles with plastic caps so that it will open immediately while the rats try to get hold of it. Take necessary precautions while handling the ammonia.

While purchasing a mouse trap you should ensure its effectiveness. Place it on places that are not in the vicinity of your pets. After the mice have been killed you can hire a professional to remove them from your house.

With the advent of technology, ultrasonic devices have been invented and that is a great way to get rid of rats. The devices emit ultrasonic sounds that are quite annoying to rodents. The sounds will be inaudible to you but they will cause immense disturbance to rats and other rodents present in your house. You can simply plug the device to your electric outlet and switch on the machine for producing the effect. The noise will penetrate the ceilings and walls causing irritation to them. This way they will be compelled to leave your house.

Moth balls are also available in grocery stores and departmental stores. Although not as effective as poisons they keep away mice from invading your wardrobe, cars, store rooms, refrigerators, etc. Buy a packet of moth balls and spread them on the necessary places. The strong smelling toilet cakes are also effective in repelling rats.

They say that mice hate the smell and taste of cayenne pepper, peppermint, citronella, and cloves...All you need to do is lightly soak a few cotton balls in one of these oils and leave the cotton balls in places where you've had problems with mice.
