Just wondering if you have any safe and humane solutions for ridding my house of a mouse? I’ve been switching all boxed and bagged items to plastic containers. This is still ongoing, as even with dollar store containers it can be costly to do in one fell swoop. My heart won’t let me use traps. The humane traps are an option, but small, and then he/she must be transported at least a mile away. Just curious if there is an herb or smell that they find distasteful.
Thanks in advance.
Hi, Helen! I totally understand not wanting to use traps…they are so inhumane and sad. Mice do not like the smell of peppermint, so try placing some cotton swabs with a few drops of peppermint oil on them around your home, especially in cabinets and drawers. Just make sure any other pets that you have can’t get to them. Mice, spiders and ants (among other insects) hate the smell of peppermint. Hope this helps!
