Are you looking for a way to get rid of mice without using traps or poison? It turns out that mice can’t handle the smell of peppermint. It is sometimes thought of as an old wives tale, but is it true, peppermint oil can really repel mice!
This essential oil is the cheapest way of getting rid of mice fast because mice can’t tolerate it.. After smelling the oil, the mice will run away in opposite direction after detecting the presence of it.
Mice, while nowhere near as impressive as say, dogs, still have a fairly acute sense of smell that beats our own. So while we find the smell of peppermint refreshing, tangy, and pleasant, mice find it overwhelming and offensive.
