The use of a natural mouse repellent is something to consider with the caution that deterrents like these have received mixed reviews. Some people claim that work great, while others state that they did not work at all. Also, if you have an established rodent problem, they may not be as effective as they are in preventing a problem in the first place.
6 Natural Mice Repellents
1) Pepperment Oil: Make sure the label says “100% pure”. Saturate cotton balls with peppermint oil and leave them around the areas you where have found droppings. Replace the cotton balls every few days as the oil quickly dissipates. This is said to repel mice, sending them elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE PEPPERMINT OIL IF YOU HAVE CATS. CATS CAN BECOME VERY ILL!
One you have chopped the mint leaves, mix them with water and keep them for two days in a basin or a container.
Sprinkle them around your home and in all the areas where you will find mice droppings.
Alternatively, you can put cotton balls inside the container or basin and then place these balls around the area where you think the mice are living. But don’t forget to change the balls after a couple of days.
