this is rite off the box it came in. I use them in my camper, after a winter when field mice tore it up, havent seen any in the last 3 years. Product works great.
Do i really need this product in florida……
Can i use it inside apartment or not? Here description reads ‘the only approved fda to use inside’, but on actual box reads ‘use in non-living areas’.
Some say this repels mice and others say they trap mice near the bags. Do you also have to set out traps if you use this?
Do you open the bags? Is the stuff inside messy?
I guess we shouldn’t get this if we have a pet cat?
There are no known safety risks with stay away® and all ingredients are on the gras list (generally recognized as safe). We do, however, recommend keeping it out of reach of kids and pets to safeguard from any unforeseen risks. While the product is not harmful, it is not fit for human or pet consumption. Please feel free to share our online safety data sheet with your vet or physician. For use around pets and kids, we recommend using the stay away® pouch pod which is a holder that not only extends the life of the repellent pouches by 3x, but also conceals pouches from house guests and curious kids and pets.
Again, thank you for contacting earthkind, and we hope to serve you soon!
Will it work in car engines that rats get into and how?
Was this really listed for $1995.00 ??????????? Then on sale for $12.86 ??????
If used in an outdoor a/c unit, how well would these hold up to the weather-mostly drought conditions with some sporadic wet weather? Thanks.
We are having a problem with mice getting inside the engines to our vehicles. Will this help with that & how would we use them?
Can you put the pouch in an air duct? I’ve heard them scurrying around under my feet.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.
Has anyone tried this to keep pack rats out of cars (nesting in motor) parked outside? If so, where have you placed them and how long do they last?
How many packages do you put in the rv and where?
I would like to put this in where i keep my rabbits, to keep mice away from their food bowls. However, will this be bothersome to them?
Would i be able to use it under pampas grass?
Will the rodent replellent keep ground squirrels from damaging my car
Would this work well in a vegetable garden?
If you decided to use the product outside, you may want to take a look at our stay away® pouch pod to protect the pouch from weather conditions. If the product gets wet, its effectiveness may diminish, so the pouch pod will help to combat that. The pouch pod also helps to extends the life of the repellent pouches by 3x and conceals pouches from curious kids and pets.
We hope this helps. We want to help you protect your garden and keep away those pesky critters.
Does this work for rats?
Can i put this in a hole in the ground? I swear they live in an above ground planter.

What are our customers saying?
We have used this product in our lake cabin for about 3 years, and it has kept the rodents out, even during the winter when we close up the cabin. Plus, it makes the cabin smell so wonderful!
I have bought the fresh cab rodent repellent several times, and it seems to work. My garage doors don’t seal, so rodents can enter, and then snakes enter. Yikes! The smell of the pine is the repellent the mice are gone. The pine scent is great for a garage. You might like this product if you have rodent problems in a garage or other outbuilding.

I use these on my rv during the winter storage months. No mice evidence in camper in the spring and the camper smells really nice.
I like the scent and i have no more mice. I do replace them every 30-45 days.
It seems to work, but not sure how long will it last. If it only lasts a month or so, then it could be ver expensive to maintain the effectiveness.
Love the product itself but the box was crushed by the carrier. Fortunately, none of the bags broke.
While staying in a rural rv campground in northern ca we needed something to keep the ground squirrels from getting into our wiring on the rv or our truck. This is a known problem in san benito rv resort. As we were camping we created a perimeter around our campsite and watched the squirrels going in and out of the other rv around us. We were there for several weeks and didn’t have any problems. Other campers were complaining about the issue.
It doesn’t do what it says
i don’t know why people are saying this works when it doesn’t
This product smells good and helps repel mice.
I’ve used this product in my barn and garage over the years. It helps, i think. At times the mice do open the bag once the scent has dissipated and spread it all over.
I also use peppermint spray as well as baits in these locations. I will continue to use to keep the surplus mouse winter population down this winter.
For those of you who dont like rodents but dont want to kill them, this is perfect. I also use them in my camper and it really smells like forest
I believe they are a whole in the bag so don’t know if it works
This is an excellent, all natural mouse deterant.
Put the bags where you have seen mouse activity.
It worked. It was not free
I doubt much of anything is perfect as rodents are sneaky little buggers. The people who own our rv prior to us used it so i bought it, too. It takes a day or two for the pungency to wear off. Our dog is a great mouser/ratter so she lays in wait and catches whoever sneaks through. Gotcha!
This product does work when used inside of cars, trucks, tractors. We use it at the farm and in the shop every fall/winter. If it is placed inside the vehicle and changed out every 45 days or so it will keep the mice out. For pickups i use one on each side for single cabs and one each in the front and back on dual cabs. I have used it under the hood but i am not sure the benefit for me. Most of my stuff is older and much simpler with the older wire sheathing that at least the mice around the farm seem to leave alone. We have a lot of old equipment and the mice seem to have left the wiring alone so far and several of our trucks sit from november to april. The limitation is that you have to change the bags out often. It also does nothing to deter raccoons and larger pests (though it does not claim to either, they get live trapped). Not sure about rats; we use bait blocks for them. So depending upon your situation this product can be part of a pest solution but perhaps not the entire solution. We use a multi tier approach that mostly works for us.
I really loved the idea, and the smell was great, but alas, it doesn’t last very long. Still, maybe in a smaller area it would have worked better, i would have to have about 20 of these packets to make a lasting change here.
I have pet parrots and a mouse problem. These things are probably related, but makes dealing with the mice difficult because 1: i don’t like inhumane traps and poisons and 2: most of the remaining options for dealing with mice are potentially hazardous to sensitive birdie lungs and curious beaks.
After a great deal of research and personal angst over whether peppermint oil as a repellent would be problematic for the birds (there’s wide disagreement), i ordered this stuff. The company owners apparently own parrots themselves and vouch for its safety around them, so i figured it was the best option.
It smells strong. This stuff arrived two days ago and i could smell it through the shipping box, which contained the product box which contained the products which were wrapped in individual plastic bags. I read the instructions, which said ‘for use in non-living spaces.’ awkward. Figuring i was out of better options, i opened a satchel.
The active ingredient, it turns out, is balsam fir oil. I read that on the box, but it would have been obvious anyway since my house instantly smelled like i’d stuffed my face into a christmas tree. The smell was so strong that it gave me a bit of a headache till my sense of smell adjusted, and i was worried about the reaction from my birds as well as my roommate, whose hayfever is triggered by evergreens.
So i put two satchels down, some distance away from the parrots’ cage, and observed them closely (one might say neurotically) for the next hour, moving the satchels gradually closer, to see if they showed any adverse reactions like labored breathing. One of them sneezed three times, and at about five feet away, they did seem to be breathing a bit harder, so i rearranged the space some in order to keep their cage a bit further away from the mouse emergence point (this was just as well, since their new location is easier to clean around–another important step in resolving a mouse infestation). After some further observation, their respiration seemed to have returned to normal, so it looks like we have a workable arrangement, though i have been keeping a mindful eye on them for the past two days since, just in case.
If you are a parrot-owner, or indeed any kind of pet owner, i recommend this observational step, because while this stuff may not be toxic to most animals, individuals can have allergies just like humans do.
Roommate was pleasantly surprised to find she had no adverse reaction besides the same adaptation-period headache i did. The mice, however, are very displeased. After i put the satchels down, i heard actual tiny squeaks of outrage as they encountered the scent, and in the two days since then, i have seen no further sign of mouse spoor. So far, it seems to be a happy ending.
Fingers crossed for the sake of the mice as well as me, since the apartment complex has laid down glue traps for them and i shudder to think.
We opened our camper and found lots of evidence of critters! Heard about fc and decided to try it just in case critters are trying to be permanent residence. We won’t know if it really repel critters in our camper until spring 2023.
