Repel Rats From Your Home With
A Common Kitchen Spice
Dealing with rats invading your home can be a nuisance. Luckily, you can ward off these pesky pests with the smell of cinnamon, which is repulsive to their super-sensitive nose.
First, locate the rat hotspots, like entry points to your home, and then, sprinkle ground cinnamon in those areas. Refresh the cinnamon every so often or after any rain.
Alternatively, mix a cup of water with 10 to 15 drops of cinnamon essential oil in a spray bottle and carefully mist the problematic areas.
This nifty DIY hack is
best used as a preventive measure to stop rats from entering your home. During a more significant infestation, consider seeking professional help.
