You could either spend tonnes of money on chemicals to kill off the intruders, but here’s a clever way to keep them out. Tea bags!
Brew a large pot of peppermint tea and save those tea bags for this hack. Put these tea bags in places where rats can enter your house. Within a day or two, your home will be rodent-free!
How to Use Peppermint Tea Bags to Get Rid of Mice
Step 1: Collect Tea Bags
Brew tea so that you have enough bags to put them all around the house. A gathering or a party is the ideal time to stock up on extra tea bags. Or you can ask your neighbors for help.
Step 2: Place the Bags Around your House
Put the used tea bags in corners of your house where there might be rat infestations and rat holes. Don’t congest the openings as that’s where the rats will crawl out of.
Step 3: Place the Used Teabags in Other Openings
Place the tea bags in other places and openings (both indoors and outdoors) where rats might enter the house. This prevents more rats from entering the place.
Step 4: Wait a Few Days
The strong smell of peppermint is intolerable to rodents and spiders alike. It’s a great way to reuse the tag bags and get rid of those pesky pests naturally and easily.
This is a surefire way to succeed in keeping the pests away from your house and also, you never have to deal with cleaning a dead rat from your floors!
