Mice infestation is annoying, harm-causing and stressful. Mice can be more than just a problem! In fact, they leave urine, feces, and lice wherever they go and they can spread diseases as well. They can appear in both countryside and the city. We all hate them, as they tend to damage our furniture and clothes, eat our cables and food, and scare us. On the top of that, they carry diseases which can be transferred to humans.
The worst thing about mice is that they multiply extremely fast. Female mice can have up to 10 litters a year, each containing about 10 mice.
The mice extermination process consists of two steps. First, you need to seal the holes and cracks which mice use as a way out. Then, you should get rid of the mice trapped inside the hole. The good news is that there is a way to get rid of mice in an all-natural way and those effective methods are presented in this article.
Have you ever wondered where exactly do mice hide in your house? Regardless of the answer, these methods can eliminate all of them, without the use of mice poison or traps.
Once again, it is important to mention that these nasty creatures which powerful teeth can eat wood and pipes too. As mentioned in the very beginning, they reproduce very fast and the female rats can give birth to 22 mice per litter.
How to get rid of Mice in All-Natural Way
There are two ways to remove mice from the house. The first methods uses rat bait and the second one a trap. Even though there are many different mice traps, the fact that you don’t need to use poison is the thing that this old method of eliminating mice have in common. However, most people don’t like these methods, mainly because hate the bad smell when they kill the rat and he hides into the hole and dies. Being unable to reach the rat and throw it in the trash, the owner has no other option but to leave the rat there.
Interestingly, you can use soft drinks for killing mice. The explanation of this unusual method is that mice are unable to burp. Being unable to burp, the rodents end up dead.
Take one dish and pour some soft drink into it. Then, put the dish into the part of the house where mice usually appear from. Leave the dish overnight and you will be surprised to see the dead mice in the morning. It sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
Mix equal quantities of dry Plaster of Paris, flour, and a tablespoon of salt. Put this mixture into a disposable dish and place it near the entrance of the house. You should also place a bowl of water near the dish because the mice feel thirsty after eating this dry mixture. So, once they drink the water from the bowl, the mixture hardens and they die.
The taste of chocolate powder attracts mice, which makes it a great bait to use. You should mix some plaster powder with chocolate powder in a bowl and place it outside the house. As in the previous method, keep some water near the bowl. Once the mouse consumes the bait and the water, the mixture expands in its body and it results with its death.
The simplest way to get rid of mice is to get a cat or dog and scare them. As it strange as it sounds, this is an effective way to eliminate rodents around the house. Moreover, cats are known as the best hunters when it comes to hunting rats.
Note: We advice you not to use the 4th method because even though rats are nasty, they deserve to live, as any other animal. They didn’t invade your house on purpose, but this was their only way to survive. So, instead of using traps which can be found on the market, such as cages and electrical traps, try some home method instead and remove the rats naturally. However, if none of the aforementioned methods seems to work, call the exterminator.
