As mice hate strong scents due to their intense sense of smell, vinegar just may be “the strongest scent” out there, especially when it is left undiluted, according to the pest guru.
He said: “This strong, sour aroma is good for repelling many creatures, and mice are no exception.
As we all are aware, it is nearly impossible to cover your area fully with this mixture.
“Similarly, it isn’t really an ideal scent to have all over your house for a prolonged period, nor is the dispersal of vinegar in every nook and cranny going to be a fun process.
“Instead, mix some water and vinegar in a spray bottle to mist any areas where you have seen mice as well as locations you expect them to go.”
Using this method around doors, floorboards, countertops, and closets is recommended.
