You live in the country? Get a cat. Or two. Seriously. Several of our neighbors have cats that roam outside. We haven't had mice in our garage for some time now.

Get the right cat and you will never have problems.

As mentioned earlier, get a barn cat preferably female. Males are not as motivated.

Wow, an article written by a pest control company saying home made remedies don't work and you should consult a professional. It must all be true. Chuck

Probably a conspiracy to take your money.

Love the myth stuff from a pest control company that just wants your $$$. Real life experience over 10 years makes me a believer in the Peppermint oil method, not some propaganda found on the internet from a pest control company.

The best natural rodent repellent is a cat.
Fortunately we live on acerage, so our cat patrols our place and the neighbors as well. He’s good for 1-2 rodents a day. If you can have an outside cat, that’s the way to go.

Don't forget to throw salt over your right shoulder (or is it the left??) and chant "no mice" 5 times. [emoticon]

Cats are great except for the expense to feed, vets, etc....

My Peppermint oil costs me less than $15 and it also works.

Those evil-doers. Of course no one on here would ever exaggerate or lie. Maybe the peppermint oil people should explain the myths of pest control companies.

Tripalot, sorry about your mice invasion. I haven't had a single dropping or urine smell with the peppermint oil in over 10 years, and mine sits in a barn in the country.


Glad to hear it works for you. Maybe Canadian rodents don't like the fresh smell of peppermint and so they try to eradicate it with their urine! We now have our rv stored in a different place and the owner claims he routinely sprays the perimeter of the property and according to him, no one has any rodents showing up. Time will tell.
