Peppermint oil is a fantastic essential oil to use if you’d like to deter mice, by nature, rodents are extremely sensitive creatures, they have developed a very powerful sense of smell, so, when they detect the powerful peppermint smell, which is highly concentrated in peppermint oil, they are simply going to go away, in fact, they do not tolerate it at all!
Let me tell you that using peppermint oil to get rid of mice isn’t a myth, it works, I have tried it myself, and it’s fantastic, you need to use it as well.
In the past, I used to buy lots of poisonous chemicals in order to deter mice around our house, we live in a pretty secluded area, we don’t have lots of people around, so, naturally, rodents around the area are only going to visit our house for food and shelter, well, soon, I found out that the best way to keep mice away isn’t through using chemicals, but it was through using lots of traps, however, because we have a dog, who is very curious by nature, he kept getting traped instead!
Well, let me tell you that when I discovered that I could use peppermint oil against mice, I was extremely happy, so, without further ado, let me show you in this post how to get rid of mice naturally with peppermint oil.
How effective is peppermint oil against mice? Does peppermint oil really repel mice?
The truth is that peppermint oil in itself will never kill mice, unless they ingest a lot, they have nothing to fear from it, and yes, people who tell you that peppermint oil can kill mice are simply wrong, rodents simply don’t like its smell, they will prefer to go away instead of enjoying the peppermint aroma around your house!
So, don’t worry about them, they are not going to die, however, they are going to stay away from your house for a very long time.
It’s because mice hate peppermint oil, it has an extremely strong aroma which they do not like, so, don’t worry about them, and only use the recipe I’m going to share with you in this post.
Are mice allergic to peppermint oil?
No, they just hate the smell, as mentioned before, they have a very superior sense of smell, which detects the smallest of fragrances, and because peppermint oil tends to have a very strong smell, it simply drives them away.
Why don’t mice like peppermint oil?
For us humans, after getting exposed to peppermint oil, we tend to forget its smell after just two or three days, but for mice, they have real issues getting rid of it, so, they prefer to flee.
What kind of peppermint oil to use for mice?
Well, the right kind of peppermint oil to use for mice is the highly concentrated one, peppermint essential oil, it’s probably the most powerful, and in fact, it’s the only one I have used, and to tell you the truth, I’ve never had any problems with driving mice away from my house once and for all.
So, let me show you now how much peppermint oil to use for mice:
Every three weeks, I want you to take two tablespoons of pure peppermint essential oil that you are going to add into a garden sprayer, to which you are going to add one liter of warm water and one tablespoon of ground soap, mix everything very well, and simply spray around your house, you have to redo this at least once every month, it’s going to get rid of mice once and for all and it’s also going to keep them away from your house for a very long time.
