The Best Ways to Get Rid of Rodents

If you are dealing with a mouse problem, here are some of the most effective ways to rid your home of unwanted rodents:

1. Exclusion

If you’re dealing with a rodent problem in your home, there are a few steps you can take to get rid of them. The most important step is exclusion, which means sealing up any holes or cracks in your home that could allow rodents to enter. This includes areas around windows and doors and any gaps in the walls. Once you’ve sealed up all the potential entry points, you can set traps or use baits to catch and remove the rodents from your home. You may also want to consider using a repellent to keep rodents away. With some effort, you can get rid of your rodent problem and keep your home wildlife-free.

2. Traps

Traps are one of the most common ways to get rid of rodents in your home. You can choose from various traps, such as live capture traps or snap traps. Live capture traps bait the rodent with food and then close when they enter. Snap-traps uses a spring-loaded mechanism to quickly and humanely kill the rodent. In either case, once you’ve caught one mouse, be sure to reset your trap immediately so that you can catch any other mice in the home.

3. Baits

Another effective way to get rid of rodents is by using bait. This involves placing bait stations around areas where you think rodents may be entering or living in your home, such as along baseboards and behind appliances. The bait will attract the rodent and can either kill them or make them ill, depending on the bait used. Be sure to use baits safely and only with approval from your local pest control agency.

4. Repellents

If you don’t want to harm any rodents in your home, you can use repellents as an alternative way to get rid of them. There are a variety of products available on the market, such as ultrasonic devices and scents that repel rodents. These help to create an uncomfortable environment for the rodents, so they will stay away from your home.

5. Natural Remedies

If you’re looking for a more natural way to get rid of rodents in your home, there are several options available. For example, you can use a mixture of garlic, peppermint oil, and water to create a spray that will repel rodents from your home. You can also create a paste of baking soda and sugar that mice cannot resist. Once they eat the paste, it will cause them to die due to an internal reaction.
