Getting Rid Of Rodents

Riley Baker

If you find that you have rodents in your home, you may initially be grossed out, but the time to get rid of them is now. You need to act as soon as possible because rodents are known for carrying terrible diseases. Mice fecal pellets are known to have hantavirus while the fleas on rats are also known to carry terrible diseases, so you shouldn't hesitate to kill them as soon as possible. There are a few things that you are going to want to do when you start trying to rid yourself of the little beasties. Here are just a few tips for making your home rodent free.

Traps And Poison

Traps and poison can be extremely useful in the killing of mice or rats. Poison is effective but you do need to be careful because with poison, a rat may have the energy to run off into the wall and die, leaving you trying to find the rotting rat. However, with a trap you will be able to throw away the culprit. When trapping mice and rats it is very important that you set them in an area where they have been before. Look for signs of the rodents such as fecal pellets or stains on the floor board. Set the trap perpendicular to the floorboard with the bait away from the board. 

Clean Up

Something that is likely to make your home much less attractive to the rodents is a deep clean. Not a tidying up, but a deep clean for the ages. You should try to clean out all of your cupboards and your pantry. Mop your floors and dust everything up. A good deep clean is going to make your home much less attractive to the rodents. Just another tip for cleaning, you should try to use a cleaner that is citrus or cedar scented as these scents keep pests away much better than most other scents.
