Home Remedies For Mice Repellent

Trying to get rid of mice? You’ve come to the right place. There are many ways to do that, but you need to choose the best option for your needs. I’ll tell you how to keep mice away from your bed and home remedies for mice in walls. You can also try this DIY trick – a mouse in wall repeller: fill an old spray bottle with water and add 25 drops of Peppermint Oil (you can also use tea tree oil), close the bottle, spray it on areas where mice like to hide and keep it in a safe location (away from children and pets). Let it sit for 10 minutes and any mice should be gone! It happens every year. You start to see little droppings around your house and, the worst part is, you have no idea how the mice got in. Before you know it swarms of them are running through your walls and getting into your kitchen, which means there’s no where safe to eat or drink. It’s a terrifying moment when you realize you’ve got unwelcome furry friends living in your walls and that you need a way to keep mice away from your bed so that they’re not relocated in there. Nobody wants to see furry animals every time they move their dishes around or when they reach their arms down into the trashcan. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be nearly as simple as I’m making it sound, but if you follow these steps carefully they should really help:

Home Remedies For Mice Repellent

Moth Balls

  • Mothballs are poisonous. They should be used with care and not around children, pets or food.
  • Mothballs should not be used around babies and pregnant women.
  • Mothballs should also not be used in any area where you will be trying to sleep for the duration of their use.

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil, which smells like mint, is a natural deterrent that has the added benefit of being non-toxic. It’s safe to use around children and pets and can be safely sprayed around furniture and other surfaces without causing any damage.

Do this: Pour three tablespoons of peppermint oil into a 16-ounce spray bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with water (or any other liquid). Shake well to mix. Spray it on your baseboards, floorboards near doors and windows, behind cabinets—any place mice might enter your home from outside or get in through holes in walls or floors—and let sit for at least 24 hours before vacuuming up any lingering residue.

Do not do this: Do not use this mixture directly on clothing or fabric because it could cause discoloration over time if left damp long enough; instead spray it on an old rag first before wiping down items as needed..

How often should I do this?: Once per week as needed

Tidy Up Your Home

Tidy Up Your Home

  • Remove clutter. Mice love to nest in clutter, so take the time to clear out any drawers or cabinets that you haven’t opened in a while.
  • Remove food sources. Mice are attracted to whatever they can find for food, so be sure to check your kitchen for anything that could be an attraction point: crumbs on the floor, pet food bowls and water dishes (mice will eat the cat food), open bags of flour or sugar and more!
  • Keep your kitchen clean. A messy kitchen is not only unattractive but also a known attractant for mice—keep it as clean as possible at all times so they won’t want to come inside looking for something good to eat!
  • Block entry points into your home with caulk or steel wool placed around windows and doors where mice might get in through cracks; this includes garage doors if there are any vents near them allowing access from outside! Also make sure not even one little hole remains unfilled when caulking up walls because these small openings may seem insignificant but could mean big trouble if left unpatched…and who wants that? You shouldn’t either!

Bay Leaves

  • Use fresh bay leaves. Fresh, whole bay leaves can be placed around the house or garden as a natural mouse repellent.
  • Put bay leaves in cupboards and drawers where mice may be hiding food or nesting.
  • Place a few dried or fresh bay leaves in your storage containers to keep mice from entering them.
  • Sprinkle dried bay leaves throughout the garden to keep mice from entering it and digging up the root vegetables growing there.

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper is a natural repellent and an irritant, making it an effective mouse deterrent. You can sprinkle the cayenne pepper on the areas where you see mice or put containers of cayenne pepper around your home for long-term protection.

Cayenne peppers are high in capsaicin, which is responsible for their hot taste. The capsaicin acts as an irritant to rodents’ skin and eyes, causing them to stay away from your home. It also makes their fur smell unpleasant so they don’t want to spend time near it either!

Black Pepper and Ammonia Solution

Using black pepper and ammonia is another great way to keep mice away. This solution works by mimicking the scent of urine, which mice are naturally afraid of. The combination of these two ingredients also creates a powerful odor that can help deter rodents from entering your home.

To create this solution, mix 1/2 cup of black pepper with 1/2 cup of ammonia in a bowl or other container, then soak rags in it for at least 2 hours before placing them wherever mice have been active (in corners or near food and water sources). Once you’ve done this step, be sure to change out the rags every few days so they don’t become saturated with ammonia and lose their repellent properties!



  • Cloves are aromatic, and the scent is hated by mice.
  • You can use cloves to get rid of mice.
  • You can make a mice-repelling spray with cloves.
  • How often you should re-spray depends on your situation, but it’s recommended that you do so every two weeks or so. It will take 2-3 weeks for results to appear, but once they do, they’ll be pretty effective!

Coffee Powder/Ground Coffee/Instant Coffee

The scent of coffee is a great mouse deterrent, but there are some things you should keep in mind when using it.

First off, if you can use fresh ground coffee instead of instant or pre-ground powder, do so! Freshly ground beans have an even better aroma than the other two varieties and will work as an effective repellent even longer because they release their scent more slowly over time. If you don’t want to spend the time hand-grinding your own beans at home, though, don’t worry—instant coffee will still work just fine for this purpose.

To use either type of coffee as a repellent against mice:

  • Take some old pantyhose (or another thin cloth) and fill them with 1/2 cup of dry beans (the amount depends on how large your pantyhose are). Tie up one end tightly and stuff into places such as under cabinets or behind furniture where mice are known to go often (but not too far away from food sources). The smell will naturally spread outwards from these locations like a “cloud” over time throughout your house!

Garlic Gloves and Onion Peels

Garlic gloves and onion peels are among the most common home remedies for mice repellent. Garlic is a natural insect repellent, and is also known to repel mice. Onion peels contain sulfur compounds that act as a strong odor to deter pests such as mites, fleas, cockroaches and mice. These two ingredients can be used in various ways to get rid of these pesky rodents:

  • You can use them in your kitchen drawers where you have seen mice frequently entering. This will keep them away from food items stored in those places
  • You can also use garlic gloves near doors or windows where you have spotted evidence of mouse presence (e.g., droppings on the floor).

Ammonia Spray

  • Use ammonia spray to kill mice. Ammonia is a chemical that kills mice, but you need to be careful when using it because it can harm humans as well. You will also want to wear gloves and goggles when handling ammonia because it can cause irritation or even blindness if mishandled.
  • Apply ammonia with a spray bottle. If you want to use the home remedy of spraying liquid ammonia on your counters and floors, use a large container so that you don’t run out too fast!
  • Spray areas where you have seen mice. Don’t waste your time trying to cover your entire house; just focus on the areas where they seem to be coming through (like under kitchen cabinets). Be sure not to spray around any pets or children either!

By following these home remedies you get rid of mice fast.

Following these home remedies for mice will help you get rid of them fast. You’ll need to follow the directions on each remedy carefully, and if you don’t see results within a couple days, try another remedy.

The most effective solutions are those that use multiple methods (for example: using a mixture of peppermint oil and food grade diatomaceous earth).

If your problem is severe and you want to ensure that it doesn’t return again in the future, call a professional pest control operator to inspect your home and advise on any further action needed.
