Tired of worrying about gnawed wires, chewed-up items in storage, and, ugh … Crap? Well, how to eliminate mice in attic room areas and other out-of-the-way places is not so tough – and you can do it successfully in a non-toxic, environment friendly way!
Dumping mice, rats, and squirrels in attic room area include the following options:
– Traps. 3 common types of traps exist for rodents – the kind that kill or maim, typically by a spring-loaded bar snapping down on them when caused by the animal trying to snatch a bait. The other two types of traps involve luring the animal with food into a cage that automatically shuts or onto a glue-saturated board upon which the animal becomes stuck. Both types need disposal of the animal – either while it’s still alive or when it’s dead. Neither type of trap is fail-safe. Often the animal escapes time after time before the trap actually “works.”
– Poison. Most rodent poisons contain warfarin, an anticoagulant. Considered inhumane by many of us, the digestion of warfarin causes great internal bleeding. It is important when using warfarin-based poison to keep water access not available. Craving water (due to dehydration due to the chemical) forces the animal to go outside the building in search of water (at which time it'll die). Otherwise, you will find dead, decomposing rodents in your house. You must take care to close all toilet seats , as well as put away pet dishes and other boxes holding water.
– Predator repellants. Non toxic and pet- and ecologically friendly, this is the one we advocate. The pee from foxes, coyotes, and bobcats prohibits rodents from ever taking up residence in a building in the first instance. Because predators “mark” their territory using urine, rodents smell the pee, determine the presence of one of those predators, and avoid the area in which these products have been placed. Available on the web at a considerable number of retail sites, it is easy to get this type of product in liquid, powder, or granule form.
