Neem oil vs rodents

Neem oil is often recommended as a natural rodent repellent, but its effectiveness can vary. Rodents, living underground, can cause damage to gardens and agricultural areas.

To use neem oil against rodents, you can create a mixture of neem oil and water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Then, apply this mixture to areas where you notice rodent activity, especially around their burrows or pathways. Neem oil affects rodents in several ways, including disrupting their sense of smell, preventing feeding, and potentially irritating their skin.
 

It's important to know that the effectiveness of neem oil against rodents can differ, and results may be limited. Rodents can be persistent creatures and can adapt to treated areas or find new pathways. Therefore, besides neem oil, other pest control methods such as traps or professional rodent extermination services might also be necessary.

Neem cake is a natural product derived from the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) and can be used as one of the ways to control rodents. Neem cake contains various active substances that possess insecticidal and repellent properties.

To use neem cake against rodents, you can spread it around areas where you observe rodent activity or directly into their burrows. As the cake decomposes, it will slowly release its compounds, which can disturb and repel rodents from the treated areas.

It's important to mention that neem cake might be less effective in rodent control compared to other methods such as traps or professional rodent extermination services. Rodents are highly resilient animals and can adapt to treated areas or temporarily avoid them.
