Pests and pest control can be a tricky subject to tackle because of varying options, especially by those that follow a cruelty free lifestyle by becoming vegan. Simple acts like adopting pets, avoiding dairy and meat products at the market and not going for leather and wool in clothing shows compassion towards animals. Compassion can be a bit difficult to show towards animals and pests that cause all sorts of problems in your home.
Specific types of pests don't actually need exterminating, the cruelty free options are worth a try to control the problems. Before anything else, a preventive measure would be to keep your home clean at all possible times; there are pests that are drawn to food wastes like mice and rats.
A single sting from a wasp can be lethal for people who are allergic, they can go into shock; it goes without saying that they can be dangerous. If the case involves a wasp nest located inside the house or an area that's too close then the safest, and only, option you have s to exterminate them. For situations where the wasp nest is located far away from the house and do not present immediate danger, we recommend leaving them be and avoiding the area because they will move eventually. Wasps are known to relocate almost every year, so if you let them live on your property it doesn't mean that you're stuck with them forever.
Dealing with Mice and Rats
Because of the fact that mice and rats are mammals, vegans are incredibly against harming them even after they have invaded their homes. Fortunately, humane mousetraps are available; these mousetraps simply trap the mouse in a box without hurting them, all you have to do is safely release them far away from your house. Humane mousetraps are the best options if you don't want to opt for lethal traps and poison. A more natural but not entirely cruelty free option is to have your cat deal with all the pests.
What to do with Spiders?
Actually, if the spiders are in no way venomous then the best option would be to leave them alone. Spiders can help catch other pests for you and help keep the house pest free; consider it as their share for house rent. But if you're either scared or disgusted with spiders then you'll have a problem; a solution would be to trap the spider and release them outside or have someone do it if you simply can't. Those presented with serious infestation of dangerous spiders should contact pest control experts as soon as possible.
