What smells do mice dislike?

So What smells do mice dislike? People used to think nothing of laying down poison or snap traps to kill any mice that had invaded their home. But any homeowners are now uncomfortable with the idea of killing a living creature needlessly, and others simply don’t want to have to deal with the carcasses. As a result, more humane methods of pest control have gained favour among homeowners in need of a less gruesome and less intrusive pest control approach.

What smells do mice dislike?

Of all the new approaches in vogue amongst conscientious homeowners, the use of powerful scents to deter rodents has become one of the most popular methods available. According to the internet, a splash of peppermint oil here and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper there will keep mice and other rodents away.

Unfortunately, these methods have been proven ineffective time and time again. Mice might not particularly enjoy these smells, but they aren’t about to abandon their access to warmth, shelter, and food because of them.

In fact, if you ask a pest control expert what smells mice really don’t like, one of the most common answers is cheese. Cheese is pungent and cumbersome for a mouse in search of food; that’s why it’s rarely used as bait in mousetraps anymore.

The smells that mice actually find repulsive are more or less the same as they would be for any other animal; rotting flesh, ammonia, and strong chemical odours from household products. Of course, none of these is particularly pleasant for any people living in the same home to smell either.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
