Mice cause many problems and leave urine, feces, and lice wherever they go. Moreover, they can spread diseases. They can be found in both countryside and the city. Nobody likes them in their house because they damage the furniture, the clothes, eat the cables and food. Moreover, they scare us and carry diseases which can be transferred to humans. Another problem is that they multiply very fast.
The process of mice extermination consists of two steps. First, you need to shut the holes and cracks which mice use as a way out. Next, eliminate mice that are trapped inside the hole.
The Natural Way To Get Rid Of Mice
We’ve always known about two ways in which we can exterminate mice from our house – with a trap or with bait. Mice traps can come in different shapes and sizes and don’t involve using a poison but usually people don’t like using them because they are messy. The rat can escape and die in some unreachable hole in the house and spread a wretched aroma throughout the house. That’s why people tend to avoid these methods and want to try something new.
Note: We have 4 methods listed below but we would like to point out that method number 4 should be the first choice. You should let nature do its job and see what happens. Even though they’re vermin, even mice are living creatures which haven’t intentionally invaded your house, they just want to survive and in search of food and shelter ended up in your house. Try the fourth method first and then if it doesn’t work try the others.
It may sound weird but soft drinks are excellent for eliminating mice. Can you imagine why? They cannot burp and after drinking it they will soon die. Take some plastic bowls, pour soft drink in it and place it where the mice were last spotted. Place the bait before you go to bed and you’ll see the results in the morning.
Combine equal amounts of dry Plaster of Paris, flour and a tablespoon of salt. Put the mixture in a disposable dish and put it near the entrance of the house. Also, place a bowl of water near the dish because the mice feel thirsty after eating the dry mixture. Mice die after drinking the water because the mixture hardens.
You’ve probably heard that mice are attracted to the sweet taste of chocolate, so chocolate powder can serve as an excellent bait. Mix some plaster with chocolate powder and keep it outside the house. Like in method 2 keep a bowl of water next to it. The mice will get attracted to the mixture, drink the water and the rest is history.
Having a cat or a dog is the best way to scare and eliminate rodents around the house. Also, cats are known as the best hunters of rats.
