Guide to using rodent repellents. Rodent repellents are substances designed to keep rodents away from your home and property. These repellents will use the natural aversion of rodents to certain smells and tastes to keep them out. Generally, rodent repellents will not kill the rodents but have them seeking their home elsewhere. Nevertheless, there are a good number of repellents out there. It’s essential to understand their effectiveness and mode of application to help you make the right choice.

Ultrasonic sound repellents

Ultrasonic sound repellents claim to emit sound waves at particular frequencies that cannot be heard by humans but would get rid of rodents. Over the years, there have been many debates about the effectiveness of these products. In reality, the market is filled with knock-offs, so it’s hard to figure out what works.

Using natural mice home remedies

It’s equally possible to use natural substances around the home to create repellents against mice. However, many of these home remedies don’t work. Even when they do, many contain harmful substances that can find their way into your food and water causing harm to you. Some natural repellents may also require actually finding the mice before you can achieve some success. Again, for substances that would work,

Preventive measures

One of the best ways to repel rodents from your home is by using preventive measures. These measures work by taking away attractants such as food, water, and shelter to make your home uncomfortable for them. Here are some steps to take:

  • The first step is cleanliness. Rodents are natural scavengers and will consume any food they find around. After finding a secure food source, they will begin building their nest close by and, in no time, grow their population. Hence you need to keep your home clean at all times, wipe down all surfaces to get rid of food crumbs, store trash in tightly sealed containers, and dispose of garbage frequently.
  • Next, it’s important to seal all holes around your home. Rats can get in through openings that are about the size of a quarter. SO you need to check your home for these openings and seal them off with materials such as cement, plaster, caulk, hardware cloth, and steel wool. Also, consider weather-stripping your windows and doors if there are large cracks. You also need to get rid of openings outside your home as well
  • Outdoors, trim trees, shrubs, and limbs, and ensure they are about four feet away from your home. You should also remove debris such as old cars, appliances, and other materials that can become hiding spots for them.

Using chemical rodent repellents

Rodents have a sensitive sense of smell and will avoid certain areas with odors they find uncomfortable. This advantage is used in creating diverse chemical rodent repellents that have been proven to be effective in repelling them. However, it’s important to be cautious about the substances within your chosen repellents. It’s imperative to choose a natural-based commercial repellent that will effectively keep them out of your home without harm to you or your household.
