Hot Tub Buying Guide


Mice in your hot tub?

Unwanted, uninvited guests may find their way into your hot tub. Not your in-laws, but other pesky critters. You may find that rodents will find their way into your hot tub's cabinet. As you know, rodents are quite adept at fitting through tiny crevices to find their way into wherever they want. Typically they are seeking warmth and your hot tub has that. The insulation makes great bedding and a perfect nest. The hot tub's wiring will be irresistible for them to chew on, as well as any tubing or even the cabinet themselves. Where they eat, they will defecate. And no one wants mouse poop in their hot tub. Rats and mice can cause some damage and, really, who wants to share the hot tub with them even if they were perfect guests. You need to rid your hot tub of these pests.

So the first thing to do is clean out the area they have damaged and repair what needs to be repaired. You may need to replace some insulation and maybe even some tubing. Now be sure the area is secure. Many hot tubs have screens over the vent areas. Be sure these are in good condtion. Repair or replace as needed. Be sure the screens are secure and keep them tight. Check on them occasionally. You may want to place a tray of mothballs in there to keep them away. Many folks also put some poison packs in there as well. You can pick these up at your local hardware or home improvement store. The risk with this method is that the rodent may die inside the compartment and a decaying mouse corpse does not smell so good. Other folks have found that simple dryer sheets help keep critters at bay. There are products that are sold that deter rodents and other pest that you can put in there.

If your hot tub is outside, it will likely attract critters. These guests are looking for warmth and shelter and your tub provides that. You need to be sure to keep your tub maintained. The cabinet must be kept sealed and in good condition. Keep those screens secure and in good shape. But even if you are diligent, these pests may find their way inside. Do your best to keep them out. Deter them from getting in and chase them out when you find they have breached your perimeter.
