How To Get Rid of Mice In Your House Humanely
By Anna Ikona
When I was a teenager, I worked at a diner restaurant and we had lots of problems regarding rats and mice. My boss was no softie – she kicked ’em, and smooshed’em without blinking an eye…. not so humane. Of course, I hated most rodents, but how she treated them was far too cruel, so I shared some awesome tricks and tips with her about how to get rid of rodents – humanely!
How to Get Rid of Mice In Your House Humanely (Works For Rats Too!)
1. Mouse Spray Will Get Rid of Them
Mix 1 tbsp. tabasco sauce and 1/2 cup of soap detergent to 1 gallon of water. Use this to spray around areas where the rats like to hang out and they will naturally move out.
2. Peppermint Essential Oil Will Get Rid of Mice
Dip cotton balls in peppermint essential oil, place one cotton ball on a small plate, and add one of these delicious smelling platters on a table, in the room where rodents spend most of their time.
3. Peppermint Tea Will Get Rid of Mice Humanely
Sprinkle peppermint tea into a cardboard box, add some cotton, and sprinkle again. Place the box in every room in your house, and watch those pesky critters scurry away.
4. Use Dryer Sheets To Get Rid of Rats
My cousin had rats in his garage and he placed 2 Bounce Regular Scent Dryer Sheets onto the garage floor, and he never saw them again.
5. Apple Cider
My mother mixes half a gallon of apple cider with 2 gallons of water, and sprinkles it all around the house. “It’s the easiest way to get rid of mice, I ever knew.”

Hope that you decide to get rid of rodents, the humane way, as mice and rats are living things and don’t deserve to end up dying painfully.
