A couple of things to note on how this can work.  Mice are basically looking for food, water, and shelter.  Besides of making sure you don’t have places (clutter) they can hide, don’t leave food around and any holes that they can get into, there are also things they don’t like or are scared of, so let’s look at that.

Lights – Mice are more active at night.  They are sensitive to bright lights and have poor eyesight. By having bright lights will help deter them.

Scent – They have a keen sense of smell to make up for their weak eyes. Some strong smells are a deterrent.

Sounds – Research has shown high pitched sound do work, but only for short period of time.

How to use:  One of the issues with using essential oils for this purpose, is that they evaporate fairly quickly and need to be reapplied.  Because Critters is in a fractionated coconut oil base – this will help prolong the smell.

Apply Critters to a plant fiber (cedar wood shavings, wood pellets, corn cobs etc. in a pouch) Make sure it is well saturated.  Place near doors in your house, in anything that are being stored outside of your home. Reapply at least once a month.
