What to Do with Certain Pest Infestation at Home

Pests and pest control can be a tricky subject to tackle because of varying options, especially by those that follow a cruelty free lifestyle by becoming vegan. 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. Compassion can be a bit difficult to show towards animals and pests that cause all sorts of problems in your home.

In reality, the option to exterminate the pests is not your only choice; there are actually a number of options where you don’t necessarily have to kill them off. But the first thing that you have to make sure is to clean your home regularly to avoid attracting pests in the first place, specifically those drawn to food like mice and rats.

Wasps

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 wasp nest is inside your home or fairly close to it, then you might have no other real choice then to have them exterminated. 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 actually relocate and build nests every year; leaving them alone doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck with them forever.

Rats and Mice

Since mice and rats are mammals, they are the two pests that vegans don’t want to harm even if these pests have wrecked havoc in their homes. Fortunately, humane mousetraps are available; these mousetraps simply trap the mouse in a box without hurting them, all you have to do is safely release them far away from your house. Humane mousetraps are ideal for vegans, or anyone out there who doesn’t want to hurt them, when dealing with mice and rats. A more natural but not entirely cruelty free option is to have your cat deal with all the pests.

What to do with Spiders?

Actually, if the spiders are in no way venomous then the best option would be to leave them alone. Spiders can help catch other pests for you and help keep the house pest free; consider it as their share for house rent. 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. Those presented with serious infestation of dangerous spiders should contact pest control experts as soon as possible.
