How to Use Soft Drinks To Kill Mice and Rats
May 13, 2008
If you have a problem with mice or rats, one way to get rid of them is with soda pop.
Mice and rats lack the ability to burp. You can use this to your advantage. Simply pour Pepsi or Coke into a shallow dish, and place the dish near where the mice or rats are entering your home. The rodents will drink the sweet soft drink and later, when they can‘t burp, they will die.
Right next to walls usually works best for any type of bait or traps, as does under sinks, where they may like to hide out, or underneath your stove.
As the carbonation only lasts just so long, you will need to keep that in mind and refill your dish accordingly. Try putting a new dish down each night before bed.
