Mice Repellant

Mice Repellant

Mice may look adorable, but there is a good chance that cartoons have misled you into believing that they are cute and innocent. In fact, mice can cause quite a lot of damage to your home and can make your family quite ill. Mice can chew through electrical wires that have been known to start fires and burn houses down. Through their droppings, mice can cause hantavirus, salmonellosis, and listeria. If you have a mouse infestation, the risk of catching one of these deadly diseases rises significantly.

If you have recently removed mice from your home or live in an area that is prone to mice infestations, you might want to start thinking about mouse-proofing. There are things you can do yourself, but in order to truly protect your home, call Pest Control Toronto GTA to install repellants and keep rodents at bay.

Home solutions

It is important to take the proper steps to preventing mice from making their way inside your home because there are many paths you would never expect them to use. Essentially, any hole you can fit a pencil through can be a passage for a mouse. Check the perimeter of your home and seal any cracks or wherever pipes or wires enter. Indoors, make sure you store your dry goods in tightly sealed, hard containers, ensuring that there is no direct access to any food.

What are mice repellents?

Prevention is key, but not fail-safe. There are alternative methods —mice repellents —that make your home secure. Some swear by strong smells: sprays, scent pouches, and repellent granules that smell like predators and scare rodents away. The other option is significantly more high-tech and involves installing an ultrasonic repellent that keeps mice away using sound waves. The machines send out sound waves that are higher than 20 kilohertz, which is past human hearing capabilities, and alter between 32 and 64 kilohertz. This bothers the rodents so much that they cannot adapt to the environment and leave the premises.

Combining prevention with mice repellents is the most efficient way of preventing vermin from entering your home. If you need pest control, get in touch with us!
