Rat and Mouse Repellent

Conservatively a female mouse can produce over 7 litters a year, and 14 to a litter has been known !
( Mrs Rat is not far behind with 5 litters.) !
Yep, and yet again we have a cunning plan !
A plan to get them rodents running - but again should you warn the neighbours ?
( Thank you Shawnoula for this fantastic photo.)
Mice and - urrgh - Rats don't they just send that shiver up your spine ?

( Although happily the old tale that you are never further than a couple of yards from a rat is not true any more !)

I won't go into their constant habits, just say they do love to 'mark' their territory - the fact you think it's your territory does not bother them in the slightest !

There are a hundred reasons why you do not want them in your house, or in your shed - but are you squeamish like me ?

Clearing full traps, or even worse putting up with the smell after you have laid down poison ( and what a horrid way to die) just fills me with horror.

(I've tried 'humane' traps, and released them in the fields - but once I left one trapped while we were away - that was an even worse way to go, and still feel guilty.)

So, I think the best way is to make them as unwelcome as possible.

That nice Italian lady has developed another 'get out of town' gel.
( Her name's Sonia, and she sounds very Italian, Joe has no need to know further details.)

She has taken oils from the Amaryllis and the Euphorbia families, as with the mole deterrent, but then added further extracts from the Mint ( Lamaiaceae), Citrus (Rutaceae) and Nightshade (Solanaceae) families to create a rat and mouse deterrent that they absolutely hate.
( O.K., before you make any cracks I did have to look up the latin names !)

Please take note though, that although this rodent repellent is far below limits set by OSHA or EU directives you should be careful because of that nightshade extract.
All details of use are included - but it's easy, you just put it down.
