How to keep mice out of my garbage
Mice are particularly common pests found in buildings and houses all over the globe. Mice can carry disease and harmful bacteria that can causes many sicknesses in humans and pets alike and therefore should not be ignored when found to be invading the property.
Other complaints accompany mice which may include but are not limited to:
• Using the attic as their home
• Scratching noises constantly in the walls
• Eating items in the kitchen and in the trash
• Chewing of electrical wires and even PVC piping
Of the four major complaints mentioned, we will be talking particularly of the third one - more specifically when mice invade your garbage and trash bins though in most cases you can use the tips and suggestions mentioned in this article in most situations when trying to get rid of a mice. In order to keep mice away, the most common practice is to use repellents. Here are a few:
Remove their food and water sources
The first and simplest thing you can do to keep mice at bay is to cut off their food and water sources from them. When they think that they don't have a viable food and/or water source on your property, then they will eventually look for a different place to look for food. When cleaning your home, do not only clean the open areas such as the floors and table/counter tops but underneath and behind stoves, fridges, and cabinets where crumbs can easily get to without you knowing it. If you have pets in the house, refrain from keeping their pet food and water out all day but rather only bring out their food during feeding time. It is also a good idea to secure and keep your trash or garbage cans tightly sealed at all times. So that mice do not get to it easily. Though this may not be a permanent and perfect method in keeping away mice, it does however, drastically lessen the chances of them wanting to come around on your property.
Believe it or not but fabric softners with rather strong scents tend to repel mice for good long while. Just placing sheets with the strong fabric softner scent around or near the area where mice tend to enter your home and in connection, keep them far away from your garbage. However, this too is not a permanent solution to your problem. For one thing, fabric softners lose their scent over time and you will have to constantly replace them if you intend to use this method for long periods of time.
Peppermint and in particular peppermint oil can be found in your local grocery and help deter mice from your home. Three to four drops of peppermint oil on a cotton ball in commonly used entry ways and even your garbage cans can help keep the mice at bay. However, though many claim the usefulness of peppermint oil, there is no real evidence to support the claim and like the fabric softener you will also need to constantly change it in order to sustain it's effect for long periods.
Another thing you can put on cotton balls to help deter mice from your home is tabasco. Tabasco is a very potent spice that you can use as a deterent against mice. Consider mixing a tablespoon of tabasco sauce with half a cup of dishwashing detergent and a whole gallon of water. Apparently, this mixture really keeps those mice away. You can also spray this in areas such as your garbage area, windows, doorways, etc. To maximize the effect. However, like the other repellens mentioned above, it is not a long term or permanent solution and needs constant maintaining. Mice also have been observed to become immune to it's potent effects.
