How to get rid of pests in your house

No comments

Many of us live in the midst of the natural habitat of various animals. And there’s no point in complaining: birds and deer – for example – will continue to show up in your garden and often joining your blueberry trees.

Some visitors, however, are more intrusive and can cause a lot of trouble. We recently had a blackout in our HVAC system and when we looked at what had happened on the machine we saw that there was a rodent nest on top of the thermistor – small piece of metal inside heat pumps that are responsible for the temperature measurement.

Here are some tips on how to get rid of pests that can ruin your life:

Poison Baits and Traps

Bait station: Holds either a snap trap or poison bait blocks to kill rats and mice. Must be placed outside, safely away from children and pets.

Electric trap: Jolts the unfortunate rat who ventures inside with a lethal dose of electricity. A little bit strange, I think

Live trap (for mice): A trapdoor swings shut when the mouse enters and tilts the box.

Snap trap (for rats): See below an example – but take care of your hands.
