Occasionally in the winter we have mice coming into the house. I read somewhere (can't remember where) that mice hate the smell of peppermint, and you can repel them by placing fresh sprigs of peppermint where they run. Has anyone done this? Does it actually work? Would peppermint essential oil work just as well?
