Spring has sprung and the mice are active. #CityLivin. Last year even my cat couldn’t keep the little critters away. Not this year! I have a remedy for that and it doesn’t involve sealing up holes with steel wool. Seeing that my mouse hole is behind my lazy susan cabinet, that’s not a very practical solution anyway. Here’s the trick.
Mice don’t like menthol. The aroma must be too powerful for their little noses. So, once I found out where the mice were coming from, I blasted the area with drops of Essential Oil of Peppermint. Every week or so, a few drops behind my stove does the trick. I haven’t seen a mouse since last spring.
Now, if you want to go HAM on those suckers, douse some cotton balls in peppermint oil and stuff all of your mouse holes with them and steel wool, all mixed in together. Mice won’t come near the stuff and you won’t have a mouse problem any more.
