Last summer, my in-laws gave our kids the cutest little playhouse. Sitting in our backyard with its window panels and gingerbread trim, it looks just like a miniature house. My daughter, a passionate animal lover, soon began asking for a pet fish for her “house”. Considering how much time she spent in there, I figured she could handle it, and had her make a “to-do” list for her little sanctuary so she wouldn’t forget to feed her new pet.
She would always tell me of all the adventures her and Mr. Gills would have together, so when she told me they brought their new friend, the mouse, over to play, I just went along with it. She would even come in the house and grab snacks like crackers and peanut butter to share with her friends. Imagine my shock and dismay when I noticed actual mouse droppings in the playhouse. There really was a mouse living in the house, and to make matters worse, my daughter actually brought the mouse in to her playhouse!
Explaining the dangers of mice and diseases they may carry to her helped her understand why she couldn’t keep the mouse in her house, but she was still sad that her friend had to go. All I could think was how difficult it was going to be to get rid of a mouse that she has been feeding and sheltering for the past week. I was glad to have a friendly mouse repellent that would get rid of mice without killing them and leave my daughter’s conscience clear.
Using Fresh Cab in such a small place was incredibly easy. Just 4 pouches placed near the door and windows, without sealing any cracks or gaps so that the mouse had any easy escape route, did the trick. I was a little worried that she would move the pouches or take them out because of the smell, but she came to me and thanked me for the air fresheners. Little did she know that those “air fresheners” were going to get rid of her newest little friend. Talk about a win-win situation! I wanted to feel bad, but the concerned mom in me was not going to let my daughter play with a rodent who is known to carry diseases.
Every time I use Fresh Cab, I feel great about my decision. Not only does my daughter think that it is an air freshener, it is safe to use around my children, it will keep them safe from diseases that rodents carry. Thanks Fresh Cab!
