If you ever had mice in your house, you know how difficult it is to get rid of them. Mice can spread serious diseases and leave feces and urine all over your house which can do a lot of damage.
Mice spread very fast and can have up to 10 liters a year, with 10 mice per litter! They live everywhere and can be found in the countryside and in the city. They can destroy your furniture, chew your cables and destroy your clothes, and they can even get in your food cabinets! This is why everyone wants a quick and easy solution to get rid of them, without using traps and poison.
Luckily for you, we have some natural methods that can kill mice, but the first thing you should do is to plug all the holes and cracks in your house. This is the most effective way of preventing mice from getting in your house ever again.
The natural way to get rid of mice
Mice are commonly eradicated in 2 ways – with traps of bait. The traps vary in size and shape but they are very messy, which is why people avoid them.
The following 4 methods are natural and should be your first choice against mice. If the first 3 don’t work, the 4th is your only option.
Soft drinks are very efficient in getting rid of mice. Put some of them in bowls around your house – they will attract the pests and eliminate them as they can’t burp and will die soon.
Make a mixture of dry plaster and flour in equal amounts with a tablespoon of salt. Put the mixture in a bowl along with a bowl of water and put it near the entrance of your house. The mice will consume the mixture and water, which will eventually harden in their stomach and kill them. Brutal, but at least it’ll get rid of the pests.
Mix some chocolate powder and plaster and put it outside your house, putting a bowl of water beside. The method works in the same way as the previous one.
If nothing works, it’s time to go old school. Get a cat or dog and the mice won’t get in your house ever again.
