Home Forums Champions’ chat Peppermint oil & hedgehogs? Reply To: Peppermint oil & hedgehogs?


I’ve recently got the rat problem and was reading about the peppermint theory earlier. What I’m going to try is re-attracting the neighbourhood cats by putting cat food out for a while. I’m hoping when the rats get wind of the cats it’ll deter their visits. I dislike cats but I dislike rats even more.
