You may consider making a rodent deterrent spray if you have a rodent infestation. Rats, mice, and other rodents are unwanted pests that sometimes find their way into our homes. As an alternative to using live or poison traps, you may consider creating a rodent deterrent spray. These sprays work by a simple mechanism; they give off aromas that rodents find overpowering and intoxicating and would typically stay clear off. Click for Rodent MACE product information...

1.  Essential oils

Essential oils are an eco-friendly way to repel rodents. Essential oils like peppermint oil, cedarwood, and citronella are so intense that they will make these rodents run away from your home. Mix up to three essential oils (using two teaspoons each) into 1 cup (0.24 liters) of water or rubbing alcohol. Transfer into a spray bottle, shake properly and spray the solution around the house. You can also use the essential oils individually. Alternatively, soak cotton balls with the essential oils and place them at vantage points around your home.

2.  Predator urine

Predator urine is an excellent solution to rodent infestation. Coyote urine is often the most effective, and you can buy it from your hardware stores. However, due to its repulsive scent, you wouldn’t wish to use coyote urine inside your home. But you can use it outdoors, especially in basements, under sinks, crawlspaces, and more.

3.  Wintergreen oil spray

Wintergreen oil is another way of repelling mice. Mix 1 cup (0.24 liters) of water with two teaspoons of wintergreen oil. Transfer contents to a spray bottle and spray around your home. You can also use cotton balls as well.

4.  Vinegar and ammonia spray

Vinegar and ammonia are substances that rodents dislike. This solution can repel mice, but it works best outdoors. Mix 1 cup (0.24 liters) of vinegar with 1 cup (0.24 liters) of ammonia and add to a spray bottle. Then spray all areas that rodents frequent. Be careful how you use this mixture on your lawn and yard, as it can kill some plants. You can alternatively soak cotton balls with the solution and place them at vantage positions.

5.  Pepper spray

You can also make a pepper rodent deterrent spray to keep them away. The spicy and unpleasant scent of pepper is why rodents stay away. You can easily create a rodent deterrent spray using pepper and water. Also, consider sprinkling pepper around cracks and entry points outdoors and cracks.
