Mice are very disgusting animals. They usually live in dark basements and spread different diseases. But sometimes mice can become visitors of our homes. A lot of people, especially women and children will scream if they see a mouse running in their house.
If you have mice visitors in your home, they will normally poke through food and walk through the cupboards between the dishes or the drawers. Can you imagine this?
Rats and mice are really serious disease generators and nobody wants to have them hanging around the house. That’s why, today we are going to inform you about some simple tricks which are extremely effective and will keep rats and mice far from your home.
Cats can be the perfect solution for getting rid of mice. They can successfully hunt them and find them really fast. Cats usually have nocturnal habits and they will be very useful in solving this problem.
You can use soft drinks in order to eliminate mice. These drinks are harmful and lethal for the mice because they contain gas. You just need to put a soda in a bowl and place it in the areas where you know rodents can appear. After a couple of days, you will find them dead and your home will be free from mice.
Have you ever heard of the plaster of Paris? It is a fast drying plaster that is commonly used to cover skies. But it is also very effective for removing mice. Just put some flour and a particle of Paris plaster in a dish, add a tablespoon of salt and leave it in the entrance of your home or in places where you expect to see the mice. Mice will be attracted by the mixture of flour and salt but the most important part is the plaster of Paris and water. If the mice consume the first mixture, the salt will make them feel thirsty and if they drink the water, it will harden the plaster that they had consumed. This will kill the mice.
The same procedure above can be used with a much more powerful bait such as chocolate powder. This mixture of cocoa with flour and plaster of Paris plus the water they will ingest after so many dry elements will cause the plaster to harden and the death of the mice.
This method does not kill the mice but keeps them away. Just place cayenne pepper in a bowl or sprinkle it in corners. You can also use cloves in the cupboards to keep them away.
