Learning About Natural Pest Control

Hello. My name is Petunia. Welcome. I would like to share my experience with natural pest control tactics with you through this site. I am deathly afraid of all insects that crawl and fly. When an insect enters my living space, I have to call in reinforcements to help me remove the invader. I do not believe in using chemicals when natural substances can do the job, however. Therefore, I started to become adept at using natural pest control tactics to keep pests from entering my home in the first place.

Two Tips To Mice Proof Your House

Blog

Although you might be a nature lover it's unlikely that you enjoy the sight of unwanted critters in your house. It's one thing to see rodents at play in the woods but the story changes entirely when they cross the line and enter your home. Once they set up shop it can be difficult to get rid of mice, causing unwanted anxiety and an overall sense of uneasiness when you're trying to feel comfortable in your house. If you want to avoid such an experience, it's best to do a preemptive strike. Use the following advice as a guide to help you mice proof your place.

Cats Get The Job Done

If you move to an area that is known for mice infestation you need to act quickly. Getting a cat is a great way to keep mice out of your house. They absolutely love to track down and scare off mice. They can do the work for you so that mice won't become a problem.

Cats are natural hunters. They enjoy the thrill of spotting a potential victim, carefully scoping out their movements and finally making a strike. All of this isn't necessarily done for food because the cat may not eat the animal that they kill. Just think of it as a form of sport which they enjoy carrying out. 

Mice make the perfect prey for cats. They are very small so they don't pose much of a threat. The cat can confidently go after any mice that happen to breach your borders so you can relax within the walls of your home. It's better to have a single animal in the house that you want, as opposed to others that you don't!

Seal Up Those Entry Points

It's also a good idea to seal up the lowest level of your house. You want to make sure there are no cracks in the foundation because it doesn't take much for a mouse to squeeze through. If you have a basement, have a contractor come out and waterproof it for you. Not only can it help to keep mice out but you may also find that there's less moisture in your basement area and your home could become more energy efficient.

If you've performed these measures and still have a mouse problem it's time to hit them with the big guns. Have a pest control expert devise a plan to rid your house of mice once and for all.
