It is not unusual to encounter a Fargo animal that will mock your feeble attempt to eliminate them. Some North Dakota people will turn to repellents hoping that it will resolve their problem. Two of the most popular repellents would be ammonia and mothballs. While they are not originally manufactured to get rid of the wild animals, some people still believe that they will be effective against them. Unfortunately, various studies are proving this theory wrong.
Why You Shouldn' t Use Ammonia as Repellent
Ammonia resembles the scent of the North Dakota animal' s urine. This is probably the reason why some people will think that they are effective in getting rid of the animal. Unfortunately, since the spray repellent that contains the urine of the predator is ineffective, the same result should be expected when you use an ammonia. In addition, the nauseating scent of the ammonia will permeate all over your house.
According to the report, the ammonia can only provide a short-term relief. In fact, it will only take 3 days before the animals return to your property. That time may not be enough to find all the access hole in your house and seal them. In addition, the urine of the rodents, and other pesky creatures will also contain ammonia so there is a high possibility that they will not mind the scent of ammonia. Ammonia is also considered poisonous and should not be placed close to your pets and kids. In case they accidentally ingested it, seek immediate medical assistance.
Why Mothballs Are Ineffective Repellent
Mothballs will not keep the wild Fargo animals away. Some people think that they will be effective since they contain naphthalene, but unfortunately, the naphthalene content of the mothballs is simply enough to ward off roaches and moths. Prolonged and frequent exposure to naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene can lead to several side effects since these compounds are considered class-A carcinogenic. If you or your pet inhaled enough naphthalene, it will lead to the depletion of oxygens on our blood cells.
Even on the off chance that the mothballs will bother the animal, they can simply relocate in other areas of your house. They will only cause more destruction. Some animals can squeeze their body through a hole that is about the size of a quarter.
Better Alternative to Mothballs and Ammonia
Using ammonia or mothballs to deter the wildlife infestation will not only make your North Dakota house uncomfortable but it will also not be safe for you and the entire family. Start repairing the damages in your house and seal the possible entry points that the animal can use. Eliminate the things that will attract their attention such as the possible food source. Keep your home clean and dispose your perishable items properly.
