How to Catch Mice? The Answer Might Surprise You.
By : Rita Stadler
There is an on-going debate about the best way to catch mice. Some people prefer spring traps, while some like glue traps. Others rig up contraptions to catch mice in boxes.
So, what is the best way to catch mice?
The Problem with Mouse Traps
Mouse traps may be an effective way to catch mice, but there are some problems with this method of rodent control. Spring traps kill the mice, and this means you need to clean up the mess and dispose of the mice.
You want the trap to work, but you don’t want to deal with the results. Glue traps catch mice but don’t kill them instantly. This job is left up to you.
Handling mice presents a health risk. Mice carry various diseases along with parasites. When you handle mice, you are at risk of being exposed to these diseases and parasites. Deer mice carry Hantavirus, a sometimes fatal pulmonary disease. Removing mice from traps can end up being a dangerous situation, even when you take the necessary precautions.
Children and pets often think mouse traps are very interesting. They can be injured if they play with a baited spring trap, and they can make a mess with glue traps. A child or pet may want to touch a trap that has a captured mouse, and this presents the same health risk as removing mice from traps.
Your homemade traps might catch some mice, but you are still left with the problem of having to dispose of the mice. There is still the possibility that a child or pet will be injured or infected with a disease.
A Better Way to “Catch” Mice
Fresh Cab is a good alternative to mouse traps. It is a rodent repellent, so it doesn’t actually catch the mice at all. Fresh Cab causes mice to leave the area. You won’t need to dispose of mice or expose yourself to diseases. Fresh Cab is perfectly safe to use around children and pets when used as directed.
How Fresh Cab Works
Fresh Cab is a blend of essential oils and plant cellulose fiber. The active ingredient, balsam fir needle essential oil, causes the avoidance mechanism in a mouse’s brain to be activated. The mouse becomes confused, thinks it is in a dangerous situation, and leaves.
You don’t need to do anything except place the Fresh Cab bags near the entryways that the mice use. The Fresh Cab fragrance fills the air. Mice already in the area will vacate, and mice entering the area will turn around and leave.
EPA Stamp of Approval
Fresh Cab was tested and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is the only plant-based rodent repellent with this approval. The EPA rates Fresh Cab as a safe and effective product when used as directed. You can trust Fresh Cab to meet all its claims because the results are guaranteed.
Who would have ever thought that the best way to catch mice is to make them leave? Fresh Cab is the easiest “trap” you’ll ever use!
