I had several questions yesterday on rodent control. We have used peppermint successfully to keep mice out of our home and in researching I have discovered that moles, rabbits, squirrels and other rodents do not care for the smell of peppermint either.
Here is a natural remedy to your gardening critter problems using peppermint essential oil.
—> In a watering can, add one gallon of water and 20 drops of Young Living’s peppermint essential oil (I recommend Young Living as it is pure and safe, free from synthetics that can be harmful to humans and animals). You will sprinkle this solution over the soil in your garden every day until there is no more sign of rodents. It is best to apply solution to wet soil. <—
