Rats in the garden are a real problem. They can not only damage your plot but also spread dangerous diseases.

There are many ways to deal with rats, but most of them can be dangerous for people and animals. That's why Express told you about two natural ways to scare away these pests.

Rat poison is toxic and can be dangerous to wildlife, pets, and people.

In addition, traps and poisons do not scare away rats but simply destroy them. Therefore, if you want to get rid of this problem forever, you should make your area unattractive to rats with the help of natural remedies.

Essential oils

Rats have an incredibly good sense of smell compared to all other pests. Therefore, the pungent smell of essential oils can work wonders and make rats look for a new home.

Peppermint, eucalyptus, and citronella oils work best. Just apply a few drops around the areas where you have seen rats. It also doesn't hurt to soak cotton wool or cloth in essential oil and place it in places where the pests can get into your area.

Hot pepper

Experts say that rats hate spicy foods, so hot peppers work even better than essential oils in repelling rodents permanently.

First, mix hot peppers or chili flakes with water. Then heat the mixture, let it steep and cool. Add a little natural Castilian soap to it and use a spray bottle to spray the liquid where there are signs of rats.
