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. Being kind and considerate to animals is easy in many ways like when you adopt cats and dogs or avoid eating meat, dairy and other products and even when you avoid clothing made of leather and wool. We can’t say the same for animals that do more damage and almost no good in your home.

Specific types of pests don’t actually need exterminating, the cruelty free options are worth a try to control the problems. Before anything else, a preventive measure would be to keep your home clean at all possible times; there are pests that are drawn to food wastes like mice and rats.

Handling Wasps

Wasps are known to be dangerous pests, especially to those who are allergic to their sting; a person who’s allergic can go into shock even after just a single sting. Wasp nests inside your home or an area outside that’s too close for comfort leaves you with no choice but 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 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.

Rats and Mice

Because of the fact that mice and rats are mammals, vegans are incredibly against harming them even after they have invaded their homes. It’s a good thing that humane mousetraps are a thing; these mousetraps safely trap the mouse inside a box, waiting for the owner to release them. Humane mousetraps are ideal for vegans, or anyone out there who doesn’t want to hurt them, when dealing with mice and rats. A natural, but certainly not cruelty free option, is to have your house cat have a go at solving the problem.

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 either scared or disgusted with spiders then you’ll have a problem; a solution would be to trap the spider and release them outside or have someone do it if you simply can’t. Of course for far more serious problems like finding a dangerous spider infestation in your home, immediately contact a local pest control professional.
