Living in New York you're always going to have some kind of battle with kitchen pests. I live in on the fourth floor of a relatively nice apartment complex in Brooklyn and I still see my fair share of unwanted creatures. Recently I've been seeing more mice than normal. What was once a one or two mice a year has turned into a four-mice-a-month situation. Not good.
Instead of using traps, I wanted to try to stop the mice at the source. I've heard all kinds of sneaky ways of getting rid of mice, including spraying peppermint oil. Have you tried this?
