Simple Solutions to Pest Problems at Home
Vegans are likely to have a harder time dealing with pests at home because they have decided to opt for a cruelty free lifestyle. When people decide t adopt cats and dogs or stay away from dairy, meat and other products or even by not supporting products made from leather and wool, they show compassion towards animals. We can’t say the same for animals that do more damage and almost no good in your home.
Actually, there are certain pests that can be handled with cruelty free options; you don’t have to immediately go for extermination. First things first, your home should be regularly cleaned to avoid attracting the pests who are drawn by food wastes like mice and rats.
A single sting from a wasp can be lethal for people who are allergic, they can go into shock; it goes without saying that they can be dangerous. If the case involves a wasp nest located inside the house or an area that’s too close then the safest, and only, option you have s to exterminate them. Let’s say that the wasp nest is at the farthest corner of your property and they’re not causing any real damage then just avoid the area for a while; they will leave the property after a short period. Wasps are known to relocate almost every year, so if you let them live on your property it doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with them forever.
Handling Mice and Rats
Because of the fact that mice and rats are mammals, vegans are incredibly against harming them even after they have invaded their homes. Good news though, a lot of humane mousetraps are available; what makes these mousetraps different is that they only trap the mouse in a box, owners will then release them outside and the mouse is unharmed during the whole process. Humane mousetraps are the best options if you don’t want to opt for lethal traps and poison. Another option that’s natural, but definitely not cruelty free, is to let your cat solve the pest problem.
If there are a few spiders in your home, then we suggest leaving them be; well, provided that they’re not venomous. Spiders are a lot more helpful then you might think since they catch other pests like flies. But if you’re in any way scared or disgusted by spiders then knowing that they’re lingering about may become a problem, a solution would be to trap them and release them outside or have someone do it for it you. If the situation involves dangerous and even deadly spiders, don’t hesitate to contact pest control professionals.
