Peppermint Oil as a Mouse Deterrent

Although natural remedies aren’t always the answer when getting rid of pests, peppermint is a very successful natural remedy that works when trying to repel mice and other rodents. This has to do with the fact that mice rely mainly on their sense of smell instead of their vision. Mice have an incredibly weak vision but a strong sense of smell.
Peppermint has a strong scent- it creates almost a “tear gas effect” for the mice. Peppermint is a menthol that is very potent and can irritate their sense of smell. A sniff of peppermint oil certainly will keep the mice away. They will leave your house/camper/garage the same way they came in! Thankfully- the main ingredient in Mouse-Mix products is peppermint oil😊

Now I’m sure many of you have heard about simply adding peppermint oil to cotton balls and placing those oil billed balls strategically throughout your home/camper. Now the issue with this method is that the oil is fading FAST. Thankfully with Mouse-Mix products the oils are contained within our porous plant based ingredient which holds the scent of the oil substantially longer. You’ll have the confidence that you are taking care of your pesky rodent issue! The last thing our campers want to do is return to their camper every couple of days to re-apply oil to a cotton ball. Mouse-Mix will get you through the winter and you can feel safe knowing you will be pest free when you open your camper in the Spring. When you return to your camper in May/April you’ll still smell the oil. Now open your window, toss the packets of Mouse-Mix and enjoy your camping season!
