Natural Mouse Repellent & Other Methods

Repelling Mice

Mice are common pests that damage and contaminate property. They live in garages, attics, and wall voids but can also nest indoors behind furniture or appliances. When these rodents invade homes, people often try to handle them using mouse repellents.

Natural Mouse Repellents

Some homeowners prefer to start with natural mouse deterrents before trying chemical control. Ultrasonic noise generators produce sounds that disturb and repel mice. While this method may be successful at first, the pests usually return once they realize there is no real threat.

Unpleasant scents may also work as a natural mouse repellent. Mothballs placed near nesting sites can cause mice to stay clear. Because this repellent can be harmful to dogs, cats, and children, it may not be safe for some households. Mothballs also lose their potency when left out in the open.

Modification as a Mouse Repellent

The most effective mouse deterrent method combines sanitation with habitat modification. The following are practical tips to make homes less attractive to mice:

  • Keep grass trimmed and remove thick brush near the house.
  • Clear the yard and garage of clutter, trash, and lumber piles.
  • Get rid of old appliances and vehicles that provide a refuge for pests.
  • Store bulk goods, pet food, and birdseed in airtight containers made of metal or glass.
  • Patch foundation cracks and ensure all vents are properly sealed and screened.
  • Vacuum under as well as behind furniture, reduce clutter, and clean up crumbs or spills.
