4 Proven ways to Control Rats and Mice in Home

4 Proven ways to Control Rats and Mice in Home

Rodents are cute from a distance (at least for some) and notorious if co-dwellers. From nibbling your electric wires to papers to leftover food around, rats and mice can become a serious problem within a matter of few days. To add on, co-dwelling in a home with rats and mice is an unwanted invitation to health hazards sooner than later. There is a big list of health issues and diseases you may have to face just by allowing them inside your home.

It is a sane thought to seek assistance from a professional pest control agency in your area. However, there are 5 organic ways we can suggest you that can help you put the rodents away if they are not too many in numbers :

Number 1 is Ammonia

Ammonia is a strong natural repellant for rats and mice. They find it difficult to stay around the pungent smell of ammonia and are bound to leave the place.

All you got to do is make a mixture of ammonia in water and put one-quarter water in a bowl. Now, Mix two tsp of detergent and 2 cups of regular ammonia in it. Place this bowl in the area infested by rats or sprinkle/spray around the infested area and allow it to start showing results.

Number two, Peppermint Oil

Rats hate the smell of peppermint oil. We may find it refreshing but for them its bitter and an absilute no.
What you got to do is dip some cotton balls in peppermint oil and spread the balls all around your kitchen, cafeteria, attic. Any entrance zone from where you anticipate they commute to and fro is a best place to spread the cotton balls.
You can also grow peppermint plants around in your garden and mostly around your home’s boundaries to keep the rodents away.

Number three would be Feathers of Owl, Fake Snakes & Cat Litter

If you can arrange an owl’s feather you will never have to think about rodents ever.
Where cats are rats won’t stay. If not a cat, you just need to arrange for the litter of the animal and you will never find rodents around, ever again. Alternatively, you can also arrange a plastic/toy snake that you can keep in your kitchen, lawn, garden or any other anticipated outlet or known infested area, you will never see rodents around.
They are simply scared of snakes, owls and cats’ presence around their vicinity. Simply use that to your advantage.

Number four is Pepper Flakes

Like all smell-sensitive pests, even rats avoid any pungent smell and is enough to drive them away. In case of pepper flakes, the spicy smell is unbearable for them and makes it difficult for them to breathe. Sprinkling some pepper along entry points, corners, and anticipated hideouts of rats at regular intervals would eventually allow you to get rid of their presence

While, there are a few more organic and natural ways of taking care of rodent invasion around you, if the presence is good in number and is not manageable by the above remedies, seek assistance from Pest Control Service Agency. Their Pest Treatment methods allow you to stay rodents-free for months if not years.

Ants would have made good army personnel had they been blessed with a full-grown human body. Have you noticed how they march with their troops in a defined line? But, how dare they trespass on your property without your approval! 

On top of this, they bite the people and pets around if ever they tiptoe in their paths by mistake. No, we cannot let it happen. This audacity is something beyond the tolerance level. They dare to intrude and then they keep the nerves to bite. Enough, isn’t it? 

Furthermore, ants like other pests do carry bacteria and can transmit diseases to people and pets. They can also cause infections, especially can trigger respiratory allergies (pharaoh ants need a special mention here).

In brief, it dries them up completely. Using food-grade diatomaceous can help your space stay ant and bug-free without polluting your indoor atmosphere. 

Many of our solutions contain black pepper or cayenne pepper extracts which the ants find unbearable. It repels them naturally and makes them grow a distaste towards that space. So, revisiting your address will be something that they won’t consider much. 

Yet another favourite ingredient of our ant treatment solution is peppermint (we didn’t mean it is the favourite of ants). Peppermint oil and extracts are popular ant deterrents.
