Benefits of Homemade Rodent Repellent

Finding mice and rats around your home and farm is a nuisance.  Rodents can enter your house, barn, shed, or car through openings less than half an inch wide.  Once they have taken up residence, it’s difficult to make them leave.  Most people resort to traditional rodent repellent to take care of their rodent problems.  

This may not always be the best way to rid your home and farm of mice and rats.

Risks to Children and Animals

Most rodent repellents on the market today contain poison.  While these repellents will certainly take care of most rodent problems, they also present a risk to humans, especially children, and other animals.  Children are curious and like to explore.  Touching and tasting are two of their favorite ways to learn about new things.  

Containers of poisonous rodent repellent placed around buildings at low levels are very tempting to small children, and they will want to pick up the containers and taste what is inside.  Pets and other animals may try to taste the rodent repellent, too.  


Benefits of Natural Rodent Repellents

Rodent repellent made with natural ingredients can do the job of poisonous rodent repellent without presenting a risk to humans and animals.  Getting rid of mice and rats with poisonous rodent repellent may result in the rodents dying in walls or other hard-to-get-to places.  

Besides having to deal with the horrible odor, you will need to remove the rodent.  This is an unpleasant task and puts you at risk for being exposed to any diseases or parasites the rodent is carrying.  Rodent repellents made with natural ingredients keep rodents from entering your spaces and do not cause them to die.
