About Pest Animal Removal Odessa and Our Services:
Ammonia and mothballs will not help you in repelling the Odessa rodent infestation. You will be surprised to know that there are no repellents that will be effective against rodent. Convincing them to leave our property that provides them with warmth and security by using only repellents will be an impossible job. On top of that, ammonia and mothballs can have detrimental effect on our health and environment.
Why Mothballs Will Not Work against Rodents
Mothballs are originally designed to ward off the cockroaches and moths that are destroying our garment. They are Texas pesticides in solid form. They will gradually turn into gaseous form that will release their toxic content. It contains naphthalene or paradicholorobenzene. The content is very minimal that will not instantly kill the animal. If they don’t feel comfortable with the mothballs, they can simply create a hole that leads to the other room of our house that will simply magnify the damages.
Mothballs come in a round shape that resembles our favorite chewy candy. Paradicholorbenzene and naphthalene will have different effect when we accidentally ingest them. After we become exposed on a significant level of these active compound, it may cause nausea, vomiting, and headache. Prolonged exposure to these compounds is also dangerous since they are carcinogenic. Mothballs can also have adverse effect in our environment. The compounds are known to be toxic that can contaminate the ground and water.
Why Ammonia Will Be Ineffective against Odessa Rodents
The urine of the Texas animals will contain an ammonia. This probably explains why some people are using them as repellents. Sadly, since the urine spray repellent will be ineffective against the rodents, it is to be expected that ammonia will also be useless against them. Just like mothballs, it also comes with negative effect to our health.
Ammonia is a widely-used toxic chemicals in the US. It has that powerful and suffocating odor that will irritate you. Once we inhaled ammonia, it will produce a compound known as ammonium hydroxide. This chemical has a corrosive property and it can also damage the cell in our body upon contact. The seriousness of the symptoms will depend upon the level of your exposure on ammonia. If it is highly concentrated it may lead to damages in the lungs, blindness and even death.
