How To Get Rid Of Mice And Cockroaches?


Mice are the bane of single-family houses, especially when the colder season comes and rodents seek shelter and easy access to food. Of course, the most humane way is to catch the delinquent and take him outside the house or garden. However, this is not a solution for all of us, especially if the mice make us fear and loathe.


Where do mice come from in the house :

  • they pass through small holes or bite holes themselves, e.g. in mineral wool or polystyrene;
  • they sneak into the house if we leave windows or doors open (mice can easily move over vertical walls).

How to recognize that mice have appeared in the house :

  • we found feces 3 to 6 mm long (12 to 20 mm suggest rats);
  • Can hear suspicious scratching which intensifies at night;
  • we find leftovers of uneaten food;
  • wires or other objects are gnawed.

Why you should fight mice:

  • they carry various diseases and bacteria;
  • pollute our environment with faeces;
  • they disgust many people.

Home remedies to remove mice from home:

  • If we have a cat at home, let him have a room in which we suspect the presence of mice.
  • Let’s plug all the holes and make sure that mice can pass through. To track their paths, we can sprinkle talcum powder or fluorescent powder on the floor.
  • If we find a nest or areas where the mouse often appears, we can put wild mint, chamomile, oleander, moldy lemon or tansy flowers there to deter rodents. Unfortunately, we cannot expect this method to drive the mice out of the house.

Chemical (and mechanical) ways to remove mice from your home:

  • Let’s use electronic deterrents that emit sounds inaudible to humans, and irritating rodents.
  • Various types of mousetrap, which can be more or less humane, are popular. Some only catch the animal so that it can be safely taken out of our home, others kill the mice.
  • Many people use rodent poison, but it poses a risk to children and pets. Remember to properly protect your food when using chemical agents against rodents.
