We’ve all seen Tom and Jerry, right? You might think of Jerry as fluffy and cute, but I’ve got some news for you - he isn’t. You know why?
He’s a mouse!
Mice are pesky little explorers that love to chew on things around the house. Aside from that, they are big human health hazards. Their waste can be dangerously unhygienic and unhealthy when inhaled, while their tiny claws and gnawers can spread a ton of bacteria that can contaminate food and food sources. They can cause diseases like the Hantavirus, Salmonellosis and the like. Yuck!
Now how do you get rid of them? You’ve seen the cartoon. A block of cheese on a mouse trap just won’t cut it. A cat might do the trick, but then again, do you remember Tom ever succeeding without making a ruckus? I don’t think so.
Luckily, we have a little more idea than Tom does. Here’s a quick list of things you can do to get rid of mice from your house.
The Natural Way
Mice love food (as anyone does). So they pretty much love to enter homes in search of them. Instead of using poison, try using Peppermint oil. Find all possible points of entries and seal them. Then spray Peppermint oil to keep them away. Concentrated peppermint oil can be potent to mice. With their sensitive sense of smell, they just might run straight away from your house.
Professional Pest Control Services
In the case that Jerry, our little furry frienemy has already held a party at your house, perhaps it would be better to call your own friends who can help. Get professional pest control. With their knowledge and skills on the matter, mice will definitely be out of your sight in no time.
Get a Pest Repellent
Getting rid of mice can be tricky, time consuming and to be honest, pricey. Natural pest repellents might work the first time, but who’s to say mice can’t get used to peppermint oils smells? They do live in sewers. Professional pest control services might be a sure thing, but it is costly. If you want a 24/7 automatic repellent, Ultrasonic Rodent Repellents is the way to go. This eco-friendly solution takes care of the problem permanently. For repellents that are tried and tested, try Home Shielders’ Plug 2 Repel. It’s safe, easy to use and maintain, and a lot more affordable than recurring services.
"After some minor hiccups and initial non-cooperation from our resident Mickeys & Minnies, our Plug2Repel devices are doing a sterling job of keeping the critters at bay. The dyn-o-mite folks at HomeShielders replaced our 1st two devices with great speed & no hassle.
I plan on purchasing a couple more for the upstairs of our house to convince whatever crawlies might be contemplating setting up shop that they need to go squat elsewhere.
A top notch small company with an equally top notch product!"
I purchased this device 2 weeks ago for my daughter's college dorm room. She seemed to be plagued with stink bugs, spiders and mosquitos.
She started using it 6 days ago and informed me yesterday that she hasn't seen one bug since she plugged it in. The product worked exactly as described. I bought this device based on customer reviews and so far I have no regrets.
The owner of the company has emailed me a few times to make sure I'm happy with his product, which proves to me that customer satisfaction is very important to his company. I would definitely recommend this product.
