Did you know that a female mouse is able to reproduce a litter up to 6 approximately once a month?  That can’t be true, can it?!  Rodent control costs North Americans around $1 billion per year.  They’re unsightly, cause damage and pose threats to our homes, pets, and children. Getting rid of them is a process.  Poisoning, as we know, has downsides and puts your family at risk.  Time magazine says, “even mice can chew through crucial elements of your home, like electrical wires… time can mean serious money.” (1) Consider repellents as the alternative, but first, here are a few tips for diagnosing your problem.

#1 Locate areas of potential entry around the outside of your home or business

These can include

  • Cracks in your foundation
  • Gaps or openings near gas hookups
  • Gaps or openings near electrical boxes
  • Garage door units, especially with unpaved drive ways
  • Gaps in siding
  • Dryer vents
  • Air Units

#2 Locate potential rodent habitat near the exterior of your home or business

These can include:

  • Stacks of firewood up against the exterior of the building
  • Trash cans near the house
  • Dog houses/food bowls
  • Unkempt vegetation up against exterior of the building

#3 Locate possible signs inside the home

These can include

  • Presence of mice/rat droppings or urine
  • Torn tissues/paper towels or other nesting materials in drawers or small enclosures
  • Chewed holes in walls
  • Chewed holes in screens in doors or windows
  • Scratch/gnaw marks

All of these are signs of infestations. Look into Nature’s Defense to keep rodents out permanently.  Nature’s Defense Rodent Repellent is fundamentally different than poisons or traps. Stay ahead of the problem with Nature’s Defense by doing the following:
