The Natural Way To Get Rid Of Mice
We’ve always known about two ways in which we can exterminate mice from our house – with a trap or with bait. Mice traps can come in different shapes and sizes and don’t involve using a poison but usually people don’t like using them because they are messy. The rat can escape and die in some unreachable hole in the house and spread a wretched aroma throughout the house. That’s why people tend to avoid these methods and want to try something new.
Note: We have 4 methods listed below but we would like to point out that method number 4 should be the first choice. You should let nature do its job and see what happens. Even though they’re vermin, even mice are living creatures which haven’t intentionally invaded your house, they just want to survive and in search of food and shelter ended up in your house. Try the fourth method first and then if it doesn’t work try the others.
It may sound weird but soft drinks are excellent for eliminating mice. Can you imagine why? They cannot burp and after drinking it they will soon die. Take some plastic bowls, pour soft drink in it and place it where the mice were last spotted. Place the bait before you go to bed and you’ll see the results in the morning.
Prepare a mixture from dry Plaster of Paris and flour in equal amounts and add a tablespoon of salt. Put it in a plastic plate, along with a bowl of water, and place it near the front door. When the mice consume the mixture they’ll feel thirsty and reach for the water in the other bowl. The mixture will then harden, eliminating them.
You’ve probably heard that mice are attracted to the sweet taste of chocolate, so chocolate powder can serve as an excellent bait. Mix some plaster with chocolate powder and keep it outside the house. Like in method 2 keep a bowl of water next to it. The mice will get attracted to the mixture, drink the water and the rest is history.
Scare them off with a cat or a dog. Cats are very good hunters and can scare the mice away and not let anything of its kind get close to your house again.
