Mice are fond of kitchens. There is food, water, and with enough patience, they can find shelter too. While kitchens may be heaven for mice, they give humans a considerable headache. Not only because they destroy the cupboards, but they also contaminate the food.
Mice droppings, urine, and fur can pose a significant threat to your family’s health. Mice fur can trigger allergic reactions while its droppings and urine can be fatal. These droppings carry bacteria, viruses, and other parasites that can harm the human body and sometimes may even cause death.
To keep your kitchen safe for handling, we have listed some of the most common home remedies you can count on to get rid of unwanted rodents in the kitchen.
1. STORE FOOD PROPERLY
Whether it is fresh from the market or the grocery store, be sure to stock food correctly. When transferring food items from the package to a container, be mindful of droppings on the floor or the counter. Few granules of sugar, salt, or crackers are enough to invite an unwanted visitor.
Keep your pantry organized; be sure to keep your pantry clean and clutter-free; always clean through the dark corners. Make sure you close cabinet doors or lock your pantry to avoid a pest break-in.
2. SET UP TRAPS
If you have always kept your kitchen squeaky clean and still lure in mice in the area. You might want to set up a trap for the rodents. However, when doing this, be sure to cautious about the pitfalls that you will set-up. Inform family members where the traps are so they don’t engage with it accidentally.
