Infestation of mice can make a luxurious house, a living hell. They can hide behind the cupboard, inside the cabinet and even the most cramped places that you might not have thought of. As they can easily contaminate food and make it unfit for consumption, it becomes necessary to throw this menace out of the house.
Here are some ways to get rid of these 'unwanted guests':
Unlike other mouse traps that require resetting every time a mouse is killed, this battery-powered mouse trap is designed to kill as many as 10 mice per setting.
Now, pour this solution into the spray bottle and then spray it in the infested areas. To spread the smell of peppermint oil, many people immerse cotton ball in the peppermint oil for a few seconds. The soaked cotton balls are then placed in areas where mice are frequently seen.
All vents and opening that provide access to the house, should be sealed with a material that cannot be damaged by mice. Generally people trust steel wool pads, when it comes to sealing entry points.
Poison baits are foodstuffs that allure mouse. Once the mice ingest these products (rodenticides), their death is certain. Baits, specially designed to kill rodents are easily available at various grocery stores.
Poisoned baits that have Warfarin and Pival as important constituents, are regarded as excellent rodent killers. Warfarin is basically an anticoagulant that does the job of thinning blood and prevents blood from clotting. This in turn causes internal bleeding, eventually causing the mice to fall over and die.
On the whole, mice infestation in house can be a thing of the past, if the aforementioned strategies to curb this 'nuisance', are adopted. These remedies can certainly ensure that these pests are driven away out of the house.
