We have a rat/s.
We have a cat (useless - inside cat) and a dog, so baits are out.
Don't like the thought of traps (humane or otherwise).
I've read that rats hate mint. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could use mint (economically) to repel rats? I'm not growing any mint at the moment and it would cost a fortune to purchase enough to spread around the house. Could I make a concoction of some sort perhaps?
Any other herby ideas for getting rid of them?
I don't really want to kill them - I just want them to go away.
