Should You Try Homemade Rodent Repellent?

Finding mice and rats around your home and farm is a nuisance.  Rodents can enter your house, barn, shed, or car through openings less than half an inch wide.  Once they have taken up residence, it’s difficult to make them leave.  Most people resort to traditional rodent repellent to take care of their rodent problems.  This may not always be the best way to rid your home and farm of mice and rats.   mouse in a loaf of bread

Risks to Children and Animals

Most rodent repellents on the market today contain poison.  While these repellents will certainly take care of most rodent problems, they also present a risk to humans, especially children, and other animals.  Children are curious and like to explore.  Touching and tasting are two of their favorite ways to learn about new things.  Containers of poisonous rodent repellent placed around buildings at low levels are very tempting to small children, and they will want to pick up the containers and taste what is inside.  Pets and other animals may try to taste the rodent repellent, too.


Benefits of Natural Rodent Repellents

Rodent repellent made with natural ingredients can do the job of poisonous rodent repellent without presenting a risk to humans and animals.  Getting rid of mice and rats with poisonous rodent repellent may result in the rodents dying in walls or other hard-to-get-to places.  Besides having to deal with the horrible odor, you will need to remove the rodent.  This is an unpleasant task and puts you at risk for being exposed to any diseases or parasites the rodent is carrying.  Rodent repellents made with natural ingredients keep rodents from entering your spaces and do not cause them to die.

Fresh Cab® is a Better Choice

Fresh Cab® is the only plant-based rodent repellent that has been deemed effective and safe by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  The active ingredient in Fresh Cab® is balsam fir needle essential oil.  Plant cellulose fiber from corn cob chips and additional essential oils make up the remaining ingredients.  Lemon, lavender, cedar wood, and eucalyptus are some of the fragrant inert ingredient essential oils used in Fresh Cab®.  You will find the aroma of Fresh Cab® very appealing, but rodents will not.  They will turn and leave the area because the smell confuses their senses.  You will be able to get of mice and rats already living in your spaces and prevent other rodents from making their homes in these areas.

Good for the Environment

Fresh Cab® does not leave any chemical residue.  This product is 98% biodegradable.  The patented flow-through pouches are made from recycled paper.  Soy ink is used for the packaging.  None of the ingredients in Fresh Cab® is harmful to the environment, so you don’t need to be worried about how much you use.

Fresh Cab® is an effective alternative to poisonous rodent repellents.  You can get rid of mice and rats, protect your family and pets, and be kind to the environment all at the same time.
