If your house is invaded by the “unwanted guests”- mice or rats, the best way is to get the young cat that won’t tolerate the strangers on its territory. But, unfortunately, not everybody can afford to have the dog in their apartments.
This method is more suitable for the large country houses, where the pet will be comfortable.
Many people buy the mousetrap. But, in my opinion, this method is too cruel, and not every woman can use it. It’s the simplest thing to catch the mouse, but how to clear the mousetrap?
Essential oil against the mice in the apartment.
Here is a simple and pleasant way out – the essential oil of peppermint or Japanese mint. Mint has very strong and persistent smell that the rodents can’t stand. Like many other rodents, the mice have the strong smelling sense. However, this advantage is balanced by the visual impairment. That’s why the strong smell is very effective.
The peppermint oil acts as the mouse repellent and helps you to fight the rodents in your house. If you try to smell it, you’ll find that it has a very strong unique smell that can be rather irritable for the man, not to mention the mice with their excellent smelling sense.
The dried Peppermint Oil (herb) won’t help fast and effectively, as its smell is more delicate and evaporates very quickly. On the contrary, the essential oil has very intensive and persistent smell.
Please note that mint is contraindicated to the people suffering from the low blood pressure, as it can reduce the tone of veins. If your family members have this problem, they should leave the house or apartment or go for a walk during the processing of your house or apartment. The light residual smell of mint won’t hurt.
Mouse and rat repellent.
What do you need to do to make the mice leave FOR GOOD?
First, find the place in your house, from where the mice come out and get to the apartment. This place must be processed more thoroughly.
Prepare a few cotton disks or pieces of cotton and wet them with a mixture of essential and greasy oil. Then put the disk in the place from where the “grey guests” come out and scotch-tape it or shut it with something so that the smell doesn’t spread in the apartment. Of course, you can’t totally avoid the smell of mint. Get ready for it!
How to make a mixture:
Fat vegetable or mineral oil- 50 ml Essential oil of peppermint- 20 drops Store the ready mixture in the
Dilute the essential oil in the container with the sprayer:
Essential oil – 1-15 drops
Water – 300-400 ml
Alcohol – 10 ml
Shake the mixture well and process the places of food storage, plinths and all the places where the rodents can live.
One time won’t be enough, so make this procedure 2-3 times a week for a month, and the unwanted guest will go to next door.
