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
