How do I get rid of mice and mice smell naturally?

The mice have invaded an old shed for quite some time and I'd like to use it to store things safely.

  • If you fill every little hole with steel wool they cannot get in, it's the one thing they can't chew through

    Nothing is save for mice, as special in a shed, it is very hard to close every little opening where they can get in, only thing what helps are cat's. To clean, use vinegar, many critters hate the smell.

    They also make varmint-resisting spray foam. Keep in mind that they can get in the smallest hole imaginable. And nest anywhere.
    Youll have to make sure the place is very clean. Use a mint-scented cleaning solution. Mice don’t like mint, so I’d spray a bit of mint-oil solution around the edges for a while after as well. Use as much closed storage as you can.

    get everything out and sweep & clean the place. Spray with a bleach/water solution and then stuff every nook and cranny with steel wool.

    Peppermint oil. Works great. They hate the smell. I used cotton ball saturated with the oil.

    Use a "desiccant" rodent remover after you've thoroughly cleaned out the entire area and blocked all holes. These attract any remaining rodents to eat and then they literally mummify, leaving no odor.

    Hi there, if you have space you can plant a eucalyptus tree near your shed. Most rodents hate the smell.
