DIY Rat & Mice Removal & Prevention Tips
There are a few DIY tips you can try to remove your rat or mice infestation. Believe it or not, rats have an incredibly strong sense of smell. In fact, some species have even been trained to detect diseases and even land mines. With such a strong nose, there are a few things you can do to throw them off the scent and keep rats and mice out of your home. It has been found that placing strong smelling objects in doorways, holes or cracks in your home is a great deterrent for rats and mice. Some objects that work well include onions, garlic, cloves and pepper flakes.
You can also try clearing any cluttered, dirty areas around your home and property. Rats, mice and all kinds of other pests love areas like this and ensuring your home is free of them will go a long way to reducing the risk of rat or mice infestation in your home.
