Make organic rat killer from ‘Seemakonna’
Rats can be a menace at households in all seasons. Usually, people try artificial rat poison or traps to get rid of rats. But using quickstick plant (locally called as Seemakonna) is an ideal rat killer. Its scientific name is Gliricidia sepium.
Quickstick is already known for its uses as firewood and organic fertiliser. The leaves of quickstick tree contains a chemical called coumarin which turns into dicoumarol due to bacterial function. This chemical leads to haemorrhage in rats and causes their death.
How to make quickstick rat killer
- Collect some leaves, tender stems and bark of quickstick tree.
- Boil wheat grains along with quickstick leaves and stem thoroughly.
- Leave the mixture for one day to get it fermented.
- Then dry it under shade and use as rat killer.
How to apply quickstick poison
- Rats have a very low sense of vision and they move close to the walls and corners.
- Spotting the regular path of rats make it easy to kill them.
- Sprinkle the quickstick boiled wheat grains on the rat’s way in the late evening hours.
- Repeat this after two days. This will get rid of the rats in the house in an organic method.
