Many people have a problem with mice in their homes, barns, vehicles, farm equipment, and a multitude of other places. About twenty-eight percent of homes in the United States will buy and use some form of rodent control this year. But do you know the best way how to get rid of mice?
Some ways of getting rid of mice are easier than others. Did you know there is an environmentally sound way to get rid of mice and prevent more from coming in?
Fresh Cab® Botanical Rodent Repellent
Fresh Cab is a great alternative way to get rid of mice. It is less expensive and longer lasting than peppermint oil, keeps mice from entering spaces in the first place. Preventing mice is much less messy than using traps.
Fresh Cab is the only botanical rodent repellent that has been tested and labeled as a safe and effective product by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). There are no harmful side effects caused by using this product. Fresh Cab is 98% biodegradable, so it’s safe for the environment as well as people and animals.
Fresh Cab has a pleasant scent. It’s made from balsam fir needle essential oils, plant cellulose fiber from corn cobs, and a mixture of additional essential oils, including lemon, grapefruit, cedar wood, and eucalyptus. This scent repels mice, because it confuses them by triggering their escape behavior. Mice will leave the area to avoid the scent.
Seal all Cracks, Holes, and Small Openings
Mice can enter buildings and rooms through openings as small as 1/4”. Start by checking the area thoroughly to find small cracks and holes that mice might use to gain entry. This might be difficult in older homes because there are usually many openings big enough for mice to fit through. A tightly sealed space will prevent mice from getting in and will help you get rid of mice.
Steel Wool in Openings
Steel wool is one of the few materials that mice can’t chew through. If you place steel wool in mouse holes, then they won’t be able to chew their way through to the other side.
Food in Sealed Containers
Make sure you keep any food in tightly sealed containers. Mice want to hide and nest in places where they know they can get food. If they can’t smell food, they probably won’t be interested in staying.
An Easier Method to Get Rid of Mice
All you need to do is place Fresh Cab pouches around the areas where mice enter your space. It doesn’t take much time, and there is never a mess to clean up. You won’t find an easier way to get rid of mice.
