After reading about how peppermint oil repels mice, I got some - and it's the real stuff. I saturated several cotton balls and put them in the pantry where we've caught about 5 mice so far this winter. The smell is quite strong and while I like peppermint, it almost repelled me. This morning, I found a dead mouse in the trap right next to a saturated cotton ball.
