How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove mice
Removing mice from a residence is a complex issue because of the way
mice get into a residence, and because they procreate really fast.
To those who do not want to kill these animals, but remove them in a
humane way, the issue will become even more complex. The reason why
the mice are so hard to remove from a residence is that they are
naturally have tools to get where they want easily and that mice can
also move through the intricate of environments because their immune
system allows them to survive in the toughest conditions. Their
bodies, legs, and teeth are also designed so that they can chew
through almost anything and climb almost anywhere.
Beyond doubt, removing mice without killing or trapping them is
going to be difficult. One of the ways animal lovers choose to do it
is using one-way exclusion funnels. Exclusion funnels are
constructed using mesh wire, and the purpose of them is to allow the
mouse to leave the space but not allow it to go back. In case that
they are set up properly, these tools are going to help in removing
mice from a residence in a humane manner. However, these setups
often fail in their purpose, and reasons for that are multiple.
In order to set up a one-way exclusion funnel properly, one is going
to need to make sure to have sealed and closed all the gaps that
mice might use to get inside one’s residence, but one. Use this hole
to set up an exclusion funnel. Ideally, this tool is going to allow
all the mice in one’s residence to leave the residence, but not to
go back in. In order for these to work, the mesh wire going to going
to have to be firm enough so that mice can’t chew through it, and
the hole of the funnel is going to have to be just big enough for
mice to pass through, using no additional space. An idea behind
exclusion funnels is to wait enough to make sure that all the mice
have left the residence before closing the final gap. However, this
type of exclusion carries certain risks, the greatest amongst them
being that female mice might leave baby mice behind. In case
something like this would happen, one is going to be at risk of mice
remaining dying and decay in one’s residence.
