Rodent populations grow very quickly so time is against you. Think of the health of your loved ones. It is best to get rid of them when populations are small before it becomes an infestation. Rats and mice tend to enter homes through very tight spaces. There are many ways to get rid of them, however it might make your home look more of a mess and unsanitary than anything else. Think of the size of a R1.00 coin. That is all the space a rat or mouse needs to enter your home.

Cleaning up after or to prevent rats and mice is a tough task. Rat and mice urine and droppings should be handled with gloves and can be thrown out with regular garbage in tightly sealed bags. When cleaning areas where rats and mice were found, do not sweep or vacuum since dust can contain dried rodent urine, droppings and nesting material and you could breathe it in. Use a face mask and a wet method of cleaning (e.g., wet clothes or mops with a bleach mixture of 9 parts water to 1 part bleach).

How do you get rid of them?

  • Sprinkle baby powder or pepper all around the areas where rats and mice have entered your home
  • Clip some of your hair and place them all over in corners of your home and holes where rats and mice are seen
  • Place some cow manure balls in your ceiling and garden
  • Slice onions into quarters and place them near the holes where rodents dwell
