Title: Uncovering the Peppermint Oil and Mice Repellant Myth

Uncovering the Peppermint Oil and Mice Repellant
MythDo peppermint oil and mice mix well
together? According to many stories you find
scattered around the internet and in a few odd
publications you would believe mice hate
peppermint oil. You would start to believe you
can use peppermint oil as one of the best methods
of repelling mice from your home. If you are
smart you will do a little deeper research into
the matter.If You Get Rid of Half the Mice Are
You Happy?Here is the really curious thing about
the claims about peppermint oil and mice. You
can find statistics which indicate it works
approximately 50 of the time. This leaves a big
question to be answered. Does this mean it gets
rid of all the mice 50 of the time, or does it
indicate it gets rids of 50 of the mice all of
the time?In reality you probably do not care.
When it comes to mice 50 success is not high
enough. You want the disease carrying vermin out
of your house, garage, or barn. You do not want
to wonder if you still have mice. You want to
feel confident they are gone.Why Has Peppermint
Oil Become Popular As a Mouse Repellant?Peppermin
t oil became a popular choice of mouse repellant
for only one reason. It is 100 natural. It is
a safe choice compared to mouse poison or even
mouse traps which can break childrens fingers.
Due to the high level of safety it has received a
high amount of press with many peppermint
products hitting the market.Sadly, popularity
is not the determining factor in success. Mice
do not care if peppermint oil is popular they
only care if it bothers them. This is where the
real problem sets in. Peppermint oil must be
strong enough to deter and replaced often enough
to stay potent. If it is a weaker dilution of
peppermint oil the mice will simply ignore it and
keep on moving.

Are There Other Safe Natural Options for Getting
Rid of Mice?There are many other choices for
natural mouse repellants. One of the more
effective varieties has been tested to have
almost a 90 success rate. Now that is a level
which starts getting interesting. If you knew
you were going to get rid of all the mice 90 of
the time you would probably get excited. This is
a much higher rate than mouse traps or even cats.
Then when you consider the product is just as
safe as peppermint oil it becomes even more
interesting. Peppermint oil is believed to
continue deterring mice for approximately 30 days
before becoming ineffective. This other natural
option has been tested for 100 days with mice not
returning to the treated areas.What If You Tried
Peppermint Oil and Mice Keep Returning?Then you
are experiencing the most common problem with
peppermint oil. Mice may find it repelling for a
little while but usually return in full force
within 30 days. You can keep changing out the
oil, but often the mice start ignoring it.On
the other hand, the alternative option appears to
remain effective. You change out their pouch
filled with natural ingredients and do not worry
about it for 100 days. In the end it appears
peppermint oil and mice make a good mix. They do
not seem to mind it at all.
