Why are pests dangerous?
In addition to the above troubles that rodents bring with them to the house, it should be noted that the incisors are constantly growing in mice and rats, which causes the animals to grind them down. Therefore, they chew on something all the time - plaster, wallpaper, cardboard, cables, wiring, furniture, clothes …
But the greatest danger of the appearance of mice and rats in the house is associated with the threat of infection of children and adults with itch mites, flatworms, helminths. They are vectors (via pets) or a direct source of various serious diseases.
In general, rodents in the house are a real disaster. How to cleanse your house, outbuildings, the surrounding area from uninvited guests? What measures and methods are most effective in the fight against rodents?
Types of house rodent pests
Before moving on to direct "military" actions, it is worthwhile to figure out who exactly we are dealing with. This can be judged by the habits of domestic pests. As they say, you need to know the enemy by sight.
The mouse has perfectly adapted to coexistence with humans, and accompanies him throughout the world. Typical seed eater (eats seeds of legumes, cereals, flowers, ready-made cereals and foods). At the same time, it uses insects, larvae and various carrion for food, from which it can transfer any disease to the homeowners. Possesses well-developed sense organs and keen hearing, which makes it easy to avoid contact with humans and unwanted enemies. Mice are unusually prolific and, if timely measures are not taken to destroy them, they can literally flood housing and courtyard.
Rats are the descendants of an ancient rodent species that have adapted to living near human habitation. They are so picky about food that they use waste from humans, animals, landfills, etc. Rats have a unique ability to survive in any extreme conditions, which is greatly facilitated by year-round breeding in places of settlements. Most often, gray or basement rats (pasyuk) live in houses. They live in colonies up to 30 pieces. In times of famine, they attack small animals and even humans. At 3 months of age, they are able to reproduce offspring.
Even from a brief description of mice and rats, one can judge about their harmfulness. Therefore, if you suspect even the only representative of these wild rodents in the house or farm, you must immediately take measures to expel or destroy them.
Preventive measures against rodents
Protecting your home from rodents is a painstaking and constant work that must be carried out not only with the onset of autumn, but also during spring and summer. Using the following methods can reduce the likelihood of rodents entering the house.
Mice and rats climb well on trees, climbing vines, even on the facades of buildings, penetrating into a home where it is warm and satisfying. Therefore, it is undesirable to use green climbing plants to shade windows and walls from the bright and hot sun. Green Blinds is a ready-made ladder for these pests.
Every year, with the onset of a cold snap, it is necessary to carefully inspect all buildings and utility structures around the outer perimeter, including the toilet, and places where household waste is stored. If holes, leaky vents, windows, doors are found, it is necessary to isolate from external penetration.
It is necessary to keep the yard and the surrounding area clean, and take out the garbage in a timely manner.
A good prevention is planting near the house and around the perimeter of the suburban area of plants, whose smell drives out rodents: tansy, wormwood, celandine, black root. If possible, you can plant the area with elderberries or walnuts. The smell of these plants will scare off the "mouse fraternity" from entering the site. They cannot stand the smell of ammonia, kerosene, cat (used) filler. The latter can simply be scattered around the garage, barn, chicken coop, basement and other buildings.
Folk ways to combat house pests
In the fight against rodents, proven folk remedies can also help, the effectiveness of which, as a rule, is not high, but stable.
In the house and in the country, a cat will always benefit. By regularly catching pests, cats noticeably reduce their number. But in this case, poisoned baits cannot be used in the fight against pest rodents, since, having eaten a poisoned mouse, the animal may die.
From folk methods, ash is used to drive rodents out of the room. It is scattered in places inaccessible to people so as not to carry garbage. Ash irritates the paws of pests, and they go to more comfortable places.
For the destruction of rodents, a mixture of flour and gypsum or cement in equal parts is also used, which are laid out on a substrate in the room. A container with water is left nearby. After drinking water after such a "lunch", the pests die.
Modern ways to destroy rodent pests
For summer residents and owners who do not want to use chemicals, you can use the device "Ultrasonic repeller", which emitting ultrasonic waves, cleans housing and the surrounding area from rodents. The device is safe to use, but many are annoyed by the sound it makes.
Currently, there are a huge number of different modern means for the destruction of mice and rats on the market: poisoned grain, poisonous baits in the form of briquettes, flavored to increase the likelihood of being eaten by rodents …
Traps for rodents, which are based on viscous glue, have shown great efficiency in pest control. Sticking to it, mice and rats are deprived of the minimum chance.
Advantages of glue-based rat and mouse traps
The uniqueness of glue traps lies in their base - glue. It remains sticky for a long time. It has such viscous properties that, sticking to it, the rodent cannot tear itself away from the sticky layer and escape to a hard-to-reach place. It is enough to throw the used product together with the stuck animals in the garbage. The glue does not contain toxic substances and is completely safe for pets and people. The lack of odor allows the drug to be used in families with allergies.
Sticky traps for mice and rats, developed by Technoexport, are economical to use and have a low cost. Preparation of glue traps for use takes just a few minutes.
Using the Rodent Glue Trap on the Site
For use outside the living space, it is more practical to use the "Glue" trap. 2 strips of glue are squeezed out onto any (better, hard) substrate and a small amount of bait is laid out between them (grain, slices of bread, fried fish, cheese, etc.) The strips are positioned so that the pest will surely step on them, getting to the food. The bait is laid out around the house, outbuildings, in the garden - in the aisles of the crops grown. In order to prevent pets from falling into the trap, it can be protected with a homemade dome.
Rodent Glue - Ready Trap already contains a predetermined solid substrate with adhesive applied and is recommended for indoor use. It is enough to free the substrate, provided with a layer of adhesive, from the coating. Put a small amount of bait in the middle and the preparation is ready to use. Be careful, spread the bait in places that are hard to reach for pets. The drug is not toxic, but animals, stepping on it, can stick.
Rodent control chemicals
In addition to glue traps, Technoexport offers several excellent tools to exterminate rodent pests. The composition of the developed preparations includes natural products, an active poisonous substance, mummification substances and special baits without a pungent odor or with a pleasant aroma for a pest with a delicate sense of smell. Mummifiers included in the composition neutralize the unpleasant odor from a dead pest.
These are the following tools:
- Pellets with a cheese or nut flavor that rodents eat well;
- zoocoumarin super - from gray and black rats and house mice has increased efficiency, since it contains 2 active substances;
- Dough-briquette for the most resistant to other drugs representatives of rats.
One dose of any of the above means is enough to kill pests. Like glue, chemical preparations are quite simple to prepare and use, have an acceptable cost and always a guaranteed positive end result.
