We heard that the place we are temporarily storing our Phoenix is overrun with mice and that they nest inside the cars and campers stored there. I made mouse repellent sachets and put them all over in the bins and inside the coach and we hope they work. It is hard to tell. We might not get mice because they never tried to get in, because they couldn't find a way in, OR because they came shopping for a new home, smelled the peppermint, and moved in somewhere else. As long as we don't get mice, I'm happy.
What we did was treat corn cob litter with pure peppermint oil - a LOT of peppermint oil - like, eye watering within three feet peppermint smell. Then we packaged it up in pretty little sachets and put them all over in the bins and inside the house. I'm sure we'll reek of peppermint for months after we get back on the road but we're good with that... we won't need as many showers
We are moving the PC as soon as the storage place digs out the road in front of us so this is a temporary measure. I have full instructions for making the sachets on our blog spiritofthewoods.net but here are a few pics for those interested. The pouches are quilting squares glued together. Old socks would work as well. Has anyone else heard of this peppermint trick or tried it?
