How To Get Rid Of Mice Naturally In Your House

Getting rid of mice naturally that are already in your home is difficult. They enter your home often through an open door but can also enter through openings through your house. These can include plumbing vents, foundation gaps and open wall vents and even tiny weep vents between the bricks. These vents are present to allow the walls to breathe. Sealing these areas is a safe and natural way to stop mice from getting in but how do you get rid of the mice that are already there? The only humane method and natural method is a capture trap but this can take too long to work as mice can mate and reproduce very quickly. The whole process takes just four weeks from mating to birth. Glue traps and domestic poison are not effective and glue traps are inhumane. Snap traps are also violent and can also take too long to catch the mice before they breed and make more mice. When it comes to natural solutions there are not many that work. Back in the day, people would get a feral cat in the house. This cat would eat every mouse it could find and would be a solution to a mouse infestation. Sadly modern house cats do not have that drive. There are plenty of tales of natural oils and other solutions that will get rid of mice but few of them will have any effect.  Some examples are cinnamon, vinegar, dryer sheets, clove oil, peppermint, tea bags, mint toothpaste, ammonia, cloves, clove oil, cayenne pepper and even human hair. But this is not enough to get rid of them. Taking all your food and storing it in containers may starve the mice out, keeping them away from any food is hard though, especially if you have pets that need to eat from a food bowl or children that spill food all around.

MIce are a danger to have in the house
Mice are a danger to have in the house they can eat your food and defecate on it causing serious gastro-intestinal distress like vomiting and diarrhea. Getting rid of them with snap traps and other home treatments is never enough. Call a professional to resolve severe infestations, especially of mice.

The best way to get rid of mice may not be natural but it works. Calling a licensed exterminator will do the job in a matter of months compared to never with capture traps. The technician will inspect your house with a keen eye for areas of high activity. When they find signs of mice activity they will lay down tamperproof and locked bait stations containing commercial-grade rodenticide. This is an anti-coagulant poison that will cause the mice to return to their nests and desiccate entirely. They will lose all smell and moisture and will not affect your home. This is much safer than trying to kill the mice yourself and will save you from ever having to see their dead bodies. This is the most effective treatment but no, it’s not natural like snap traps and cinnamon. However, if you have an infestation that won’t respond to other treatments then this is the only way to get rid of them permanently. Call an exterminator today and enjoy life without mice and other rodents causing you stress.
