What Are Some Natural Mice Repellents?

Natural repellents for mice include peppermint oil, hot sauce and ammonia. These fragrant products help to keep the home free of rodents without the dangers of poisons.

Homeowners with a mouse problem sometimes find pouring ammonia around the foundation of the house helps to eliminate mice. The mouse cannot determine if the ammonia comes from a bottle or if it is left by larger predators, such as cats, since urine breaks down to form ammonia.

Tabasco sauce is another strong repellent for mice. Mixing a few drops of this hot pepper sauce, dish detergent and water in a spray bottle and spraying the area where mice are hiding can cause them to leave.
