Wayne County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Do Peppermint And Rodents Mix? - If you look for ways to get rid of rodents, then one of the solutions will jump right at you. One of the common solutions given is to use peppermint oil to repel the fluffy tailed rodents. You may think that the peppermint oil solution seems too simple to be effective; so is it true? Don't peppermint and rodents mix? The reality is that peppermint does have some repellent qualities to it. Rodents seem to dislike the smell of peppermint. The same happens when mice and rats are exposed to it. Does that mean that peppermint oil is an effective rodent repellent?

When looking at the peppermint and rodents combination it seems that although rodents do not like peppermint, the oil solution is not as effective as you may think. The reason for that is that the smell will not be there long enough to keep the rodents away, so you would have to keep using the oil almost on a daily basis. Even when you use the oil, a rodent can simply move to another place in your home. You may think that the room is sealed and the rodent has no place to go, but they are small enough to move through some very small spaces.
