You may think they are cute. I don’t. There is nothing I like less than cleaning out a room and finding evidence of their presence. I have found that they really dislike peppermint oil and where ever it is they are not. Plus it smells great to us!
I have been adding peppermint essential oil to cotton balls or makeup remover pads and placing them near where I think they are coming in (and yes we also have steel wool and rodent foam and anything else to block holes but they are sneaky). Not seeing nearly as much evidence!
Give it a try!
