When rodents infiltrate our lives, we need to put on our thinking caps and come up with an exterminating solution. A solution that will last. A solution that is like no other. A solution that will get that rodent problem under control for the sanity of your family and the cleanliness of your home. Sure, you can head to your local hardware store and get a snap trap, but that involves removing a partially decapitated creature.

Kitty Litter

The truth of the matter is that cats are the rodent’s natural predator. A cat is the first line of defense, but if you don’t want a new pet in your family, kitty litter will suffice. The scent of kitty litter will send rodents screaming away. The sheer fear of a cat’s presence keeps the rats away.

Black Pepper

Sprinkling a bit of black paper outside the rodent hole has a similar effect as peppermint. When rodents inhale the pungent black pepper smell, the tiny creatures lungs’ inflate and they stop breathing.
