Home Remedies

Seal Up Holes

Rodents usually create holes that they use to get into the house. The house should be inspected for such damages and if found they should be sealed to block out further access into the home.

Set Traps

Traps are perhaps the oldest method of dealing with rats, in setting traps foods with scent that rodents like are used as baits and could be poisoned so that when the rats go after the food they are caught in the trap and may die from poisoning. When poisons are used alongside the traps, care has to be taken to ensure that the poisons are not mistakenly ingested, gloves should be worn and hands should be properly washed after each contact and the poisons should be kept out of reach and separate from edibles.

Natural Predators

Natural biological predators can be used to chase away rodents, you don’t have to actually bring in these animals into your home you just have to bring in their scents and scare off the rodents because it is a jungle out there. Cat litters and owl feathers can be put in some corners of the house to scare them off.


Rodents hate the odor of onions, especially when they become pungent, hence if you can endure the smell yourself, then you can put them at places infested by the rodents to send them out.
