How to get rid of a dangerous rodent in the country? This question is interesting to many gardeners. Carefully study the proposed methods, use the most effective. Follow the preventative recommendations.
Causes of gray pests
Almost every summer resident does not know for sure whether there are gray rodents in his area or not. Mice are very voracious, active at night, able to mask well. Especially, this applies to people who come to the country only on weekends. However, those who live in the country constantly, often ask themselves: where do eared rodents come from?
In most cases, the intruder is a vole. Pests come from nearby fields, forests, marshes. Field mice have a distinctive feature - a large black stripe across the back. In appearance, cute animals multiply rapidly, becoming a huge threat to the vegetation in the garden, the garden, and the food prepared for the winter.
There are several main causes of the population in the dacha mice: housing, food. The latter are almost basic, because the majority of summer residents do not particularly care about the order on the site: they leave bags with garbage, do not remove crumbs from the table, do not cork badly with bags or banks with edible supplies.
Mice are not whimsical in terms of housing, even a plywood house will become a safe haven for pests. For rodents, the main thing in the house: the absence of wind, snow. The parasite will independently dig up a mink, will put supplies for the winter. Therefore, it is necessary to wait for the invasion of mice in the country during the period after harvest, when the cold weather approaches. With the onset of the new season, the pests scatter around the neighborhood, having chosen the fields, forests, voles often settle near the marshes.
How to deal with rodents: mechanical methods

Rodent control is conducted in various ways: mechanical, chemical, folk remedies, alternatives. Each method has its drawbacks and pros, consider all means, choose the most effective, which will help to destroy pests in the country forever.
Such methods involve a physical effect on the mouse. Some offer humane methods of dealing with mice, others are aimed at the complete destruction of the pest. Everyone chooses the desired method based on their preferences.
Mousetraps and traps
They are the most sought-after constructions against rodents in the country, you can build mouse traps with your own hands from scrap materials.
Contrary to the prevailing stereotype, the worst bait for a rodent is cheese. If you want to catch all the parasites, use bread dipped in vegetable oil or peanuts.

Examples of mousetraps:
- the standard design is not very effective (it gives only 50% of the results): the trap closes slowly or presses only the rodent's tail. There are more complex traps with motion sensors, they are more expensive, but they show almost 100% results,
- You can make a trap yourself. This will require a half-liter jar or plastic bottle. In the latter case, cut the bottle into two parts, put the bait on the bottom, lubricate the inside of the trap with butter. To the side of the substitute a piece of cardboard so that the mouse can get into the trap. A rodent will not be able to get out of it due to slipping on butter,
- You will need a glass jar, a coin and a bait. A thread with a bait is attached to the bottom of the jar, the container is turned upside down, a coin is inserted so that there is a passage for the rodent. When you try to get a tidbit, the mouse will disrupt the balance of the structure, will trap itself,
- use special glue. On any cardboard surface, apply a special glue that attracts rodents, for example, "ALT". In the center of the trap, place the bait, glue carefully smear over the entire surface of the cardboard. Mice are carried on the bait, but can not get out of the trap, because they are firmly glued.
Place all mousetraps in the favorite places of the accumulation of parasites, also near food supplies.
Chemical methods of destruction
It is not recommended to use such means at home, because they can be dangerous for pets and humans, but almost everyone uses them at the dacha. The use of insecticides gives almost 100% guarantee, rodents leave the summer cottage for a week.
The choice of poisons against mice is very large, the most popular and effective means include:
- Baktobordentsid. It is the most effective poison for mice, shows excellent results, does not harm other animals, man. The product is sold in grains, which include pathogenic bacteria that cause deadly diseases in rodents. The parasite infects other pests, it soon dies itself,
- Storm. Popular tool copes with rats, mice, comes in the form of tablets made from a powerful insecticide. Spread out the strain in the habitat of the rodent, next to the food. After a few weeks of the pest will not remain a trace
- Rat death. It is often used because of its safety for pets, humans. The drug is a powder that is laid out in the habitats of pests. It is not recommended to touch the bags with bare hands, after using them throw them in plastic bags.
Effective folk remedies for rodents:
- combine a spoonful of melted fat; take four spoons of flour, two spoons of barium carbonate. All substances mix among themselves, form small balls. Spread the poison in the holes of the mice, next to the food,
- Combine dry putty with flour, add water until a thick mass is formed. Use poison bait shaped balls in the same way as before.

It is important to know the measures that will help prevent the invasion of rodents at their summer cottage:
- make it a rule to immediately clean up garbage, food residues,
- cover all the cracks, holes in the walls, the floor, which can be the path of pests entering the house,
- Get a cat or a dog. The latter even cope better with catching mice than cats.
Video - review of effective drugs that will protect the garden and the country from the invasion of rodents:
For a long time I looked after such a technique - I studied reviews and opinions. I will not argue that all devices are equally effective - I still have nothing to compare with. But Ekosniper - works, and this is a fact. They were convinced by the reviews of other gardeners, whom this scarer helped to get rid of not only the rodents, but also the ants in the house (by the way, I also experienced it first on ants). Now I confirm it myself: useful thing, effective.
A good cat is a universal remedy for small rodents in the country. It catches, destroys nests - and the animals quickly leave their homes, not wanting to risk offspring. No wonder that in the villages in every house there was a cat or a cat, and not only one. But in fairness it should be said: in this way of dealing with mice there are drawbacks.
First of all, not every "modern" cat has preserved the instincts of wild ancestors. Some of my friends, the owners of well-fed and sleek seals, themselves say: “Show our mouse - it’s not known who will be more scared. He does not know how to catch them, completely lazy. " From such an animal, of course, there will be little use.
Secondly, the remedy is seasonal: as a rule, pets are brought to the country house only in the warm season, and in winter, the site and the garden house are used for the complete and undivided use of mice.
Thirdly, even if you live in your house all year round, there are places where the cat has no free access, and rodents penetrate easily - the same cellars, for example. Of course, you can lock a four-legged hunter there for a while, but somehow it is not too humane. And free entry-exit to the storage facility can break the temperature regime, and it is simply not always convenient for the owners.
On the other hand, the number of mice, shrews and other similar pests in the country, where there is a cat, is noticeably decreasing, and this is confirmed by everyone who had the opportunity to compare. By the way, some dogs (mostly medium-sized hunting breeds) also successfully catch country rodents.
In a word, even though nature took care that the mice were never transferred to our homes and gardens, we were quite able to withstand their onslaught, I was convinced. And you? How do you fight rodents in the country? What methods, means, ways you consider the most effective and effective?
- Read all comments from the beginning:
Hee ... hee ... What barrel? Tree Than? gasoline? Hee ... hee ... Dies right there.
To do something you need everything reasonable and limited. So it is possible to make a field from a garden or a tank farm. If you are fighting rodents, moles, shrews:
It is necessary to detect all the holes in the area, the entrances, clean the entrance to them and pour in a limited amount of gasoline there. Ryumku or two. Depends on the hole. Immediately bury the hole and pin down the ground with your foot. In the hole in moles and all evil spirits there is a pair of gasoline and a strong smell. They bullet go to the neighbors. . Everything must be done with the mind and not peretravit earth. You have the same garden and near the roots of your plants. Otherwise you will be so empty that it will be empty. Everything is limited!
I apologize further for deviating from the topic ...
It's not easy with ants. I was mistaken, there are 8,800 of them.
Do not think that they are useful!
Ants fight harder! We are looking for an anthill and also pour a limited amount into an anthill.
THIS IS ABOUT ANTI-HARM ANSWERS:
"1. They love to eat ripe fruits, especially love garden strawberries. But the harm from this small - insects spoil only some berries.
2. Ants haul seeds of plants, including weeds, supplied with edible appendages into their nests, thereby spreading them. But you can’t call them malicious handlers. The wind and the man himself bring much more weeds to the plot.
3. Ants inflict the most significant damage to horticultural crops by breeding “herds” of aphids, using them as “milk cows”. They constantly take care of increasing the amount of aphids and their full nutrition, for which they transfer them to neighboring branches and other plants.
The spread of aphids, which greatly weakens the shoots, sucking the juice, and is also a carrier of plant diseases, causes great damage to the garden, blocking all the benefits of ants.
Aphids feed on plant sap and from time to time a drop of semi-digested juice hangs on her tip of the abdomen, which is called honeydew. This is a treat for the ants, who kind of milked the aphid - tickle the belly with the antennae and get a sweet drop. Aphid is capable of emitting a drop of dew every minute.
Ants guard their "herds", transfer to fresh, not yet damaged shoots. In the fall, they carry the aphids to their anthills, and in the spring they take them out and plant them on the leaves of plants. Some species of ants louse ants settle on the roots of plants, specially digging for them moves.
Aphids, being one of the most dangerous pests, can weaken plants so much that it will lead to virtually no crop. Ornamental plants lose their attractive appearance - the leaves curl and turn yellow, the growth of shoots stops.
It should be noted that ants "milked" and reproduce not only aphids, but also such pests as cicadas, listabloshki, chervets and some types of caterpillars. "
I have near the forest and forest ants liked the sweet foliage of fruit plants. Especially sweet cherries
