Mice are not a problem in small numbers but if you have a rat infestation in your farm, managing it can be quite a challenge. Using rat poison in a farm can be dangerous as it may affect ground water and even get into the crops. It’s particularly challenging if you’re an organic producer.
The following recipe kills mouse without using poisonous substance. It was given by a successful manufacturer of organic fertiliser with distribution across north India. He says it’s quite effective. You can try it at home.
Mix one part corn meal (maize flour or makki ka aata) with one part sugar and one part cement. Keep it in a plate or something at a place frequented by mice. Eating the mixture will make the mouse thirsty, so keep some water close to this in a tumbler from which a mouse may be able to drink. After drinking water the cement will set in the intestines and kill the mouse after sometime.
Please use this only if you have an infestation that’s affecting productivity. Mice can be harmless if they are in small numbers.
