How to get rid of rats locally



How you we get rid of rodents in our environment naturally? There is no one- way answer. Our forefathers ensured that cracks and holes at home that could allow rodents in were sealed.

According to a traditional practitioner, Mr  Segun Fahuwa, a.k.a Mister Guarantee, our forefathers equally removed food sources that might attract rodents, such as trash, pet food or fallen fruit from trees, and stored them properly. Housecats are nature’s mouse predator. “Just don’t let them outside, because they also kill birds, and never use mouse poison because your cat could easily ingest it along with the rodent,” he stated.
Dr Fahuwa said one could also capture rodents with live traps and move them far from the home. “Use snap traps with sensitive triggers that are more likely to kill quickly. Use as many as 10 traps near any known rodent hole, and position them about two feet apart along walls, with the bait-end against the wall. It is also good to put on hand gloves or else your scent on the traps may make them ineffective, because rodents can pick up human body aura,” he stated.
He added that the modern use of glue traps are unlikely to kill mice quickly, but can be effective. “Keep them in place for at least five days so rodents become accustomed to them. People of old also used sound to drive away rodents. These improvised repellent sound devices may or may not work, but are designed to annoy rodents with a high-frequency sound that humans can’t hear.
“Poison bait boxes can be used as a last resort. Look for tamper- and weather-proof boxes that use first-generation (multiple-dose) anticoagulants. Place them only in areas that are inaccessible to pets and children,” he advised.
In addition, a site www.pestkill.org explained that rodents appear in the places where they feel comfortable. Appearances of rodents prove that the inhabitants didn’t pay much attention to hygiene and sanitation. So, the only way out is to keep your rooms and environment in order. It takes you a weekend to put to right these places, but you will be saved from rodents for a long month and years. Check all rooms including the kitchen for the presence of holes and cracks. Look for any damage, because small mouse can penetrate through a hole sized of a small coin. If you have found some holes, close them up with steel wool. Then apply sealant or cement. Put the mousetraps around the house. As bait it is better to use a slice of fried edibles or peanut paste. Do not provoke mice to come back. Pack products carefully and close them tightly. Keep a bin clean. In such a way you will be saved not only from rodents but from insects as well.
