Looking to rid your home, barn, farm equipment and other areas of mice and wondering what's the best way to get rid of rodents? There are plenty of products and traps available to do the job, but not all of them are safe.
In this article, we'll take a deeper look into the following different options for how to get rid of mice:
Getting rid of mice naturally from your home is the most clean and safe way to fix the problem that won't hurt humans or animals. Some of the above listed options have their advantages and disadvantages which we will explore below.
Peppermint oil can work for ridding an area of mice. You can use this indoors or outdoors. It is a natural product that is safe for humans and animals. Make sure that the peppermint oil you use is labeled as 100% pure. Simply put a few drops of the oil on some cotton balls. Leave the cotton balls in the areas where you know the mice are living.Peppermint oil will dissipate quickly on the cotton balls, so you will need to replace them up to a couple times a week.
Mothballs will also get rid of mice about 65% of the time. Take the mothballs directly from the box and place them in the areas inhabited by mice.
Mothballs contain harmful chemicals and should not be used in non-ventilated areas or around kids and pets. This method can be extremely dangerous to not only humans, but pets as well. If a child or pet eats a mothball, they can become very sick, and the effects can be potentially life-threatening.
Although mothballs seem like an easy and inexpensive mouse repellent, there are drawbacks to this method of mouse and rodent control.
Tidying up around the home on a consistent schedule cannot be overlooked as a way to help keep mice away naturally.
Mice are drawn towards messy homes with many places for them to hide and crumbs for them to eat. Cleaning your home often, and making sure you get to all of the nooks and crannys, will take away the comfort for the mouse. Storing all of your food, including pet food, in air-tight containers, and ensuring there is nothing left out on the counters for easy access is extremely important. It's also important to clean up crumbs quickly and thoroughly.
Another way you can help get rid of rodents is by sealing off all the small openings and cracks in your home. If an opening is too big to seal, place steel wool in the hole as mice can't chew through it.
All of the items mentioned above should be done around your home, but the issue with using this as your only plan to get rid of mice is that if you already have them they may not leave quickly. These tactics will certainly help prevent mice, but may take longer to actually fix an existing problem.
