Discover Best Natural Mouse Repellent Methods and Save Money

Once upon a time the best form of mouse repellent was a cat that was good at catching mice!  Now there are humane traps to catch the mice that do get in as well as plenty of different types of rodent repellent materials that you can invest in to keep the mice from coming in (which will allow your cat to get some rest once in a while) at all.  Some pest repellant materials are chemical based.  Others are natural based.  Obviously a natural mouse and pest repellent is the best option because it doesn't pose the high risk to your family and home that a chemical or poison-based rodent repellant will pose. 

There are a lot of different types of natural mouse repellent methods on the market.  A quick internet search will turn up scores of different products that you can use to encourage mice to stay the heck out of your home.  Of course, sorting through all of these natural products can feel like a chore.  Here are the best natural pest repellent methods that we have found:

Natural Oils

Peppermint oil, is said to work well at repelling mice.  Some say mice can't stand the smell of the stuff and by placing a few cotton balls soaked in the peppermint extract or oil in the places that you've found mice can keep them from coming in to your home.  The problem with this method is that the cotton balls need to be replaced frequently because as they dry, the smell quickly fades.  If you are not careful, your peppermint mouse repellent could end up being used for a mouse nest instead!

Fabric Softener

Some home owners find that by placing the "stinkiest" dryer sheets they can find in the places that they've seen mice before, they discourage the mice from coming back to those places.  The problem is that, like the natural oils, these sheets eventually lose their scents and can be used by the mice as nesting material.  Worse, these sheets can easily be avoided or moved altogether (they aren't exactly made from heavy material).

Plant Based Repellents

There are a lot of environmentally friendly mouse repellent products on the market.  Sure using oils and fabric softener sounds cheap but the price of replacing them can quickly add up. Why not just buy one of the products that were created with the idea of repelling mice in mind?  Fresh Cab lasts longer than other house hold based products you might be thinking of trying.  It's biodegradable and it is safe to use around kids and pets.  Technology and science have come a long way in recent years and experts are now able to put together rodent repellent products that are made from natural materials that don't pose a threat.  Why not take advantage of them? 

While Fresh Cab is certainly one of your best bets as far as mouse repellent is concerned, ultimately you will probably have to try a few methods before you settle on the right method for you and your family.  Good luck
