About Rodent Sheriff

You want to keep critters out of your home, but you also don’t want to resort to dangerous chemicals or inhumane traps. Rodent Sheriff promises to provide a solution with their natural, peppermint-based liquid repellent that’s safe for indoor and outdoor use.

Simply spray Rodent Sheriff around the trash, garage, basement, attic, entry points around your house, and just about anywhere else, and its handcrafted formula will keep mice, roaches, raccoons, and other rodents away. Each bottle of Rodent Sheriff is made in the USA, tested by an independent lab, and contains enough liquid for 1,000 sprays.

Did you have any idea that some pests hate the smell of peppermint? We sure didn’t! But does this neat fact mean that Rodent Sheriff is a good value? That’s exactly what we’ll explore in this review.

The Link Between Peppermint & Pests

It’s not quite clear in all instances why peppermint repels many common pests so well, but the fact of the matter is that it works, whether as a spray, crushed and scattered about, or as an entire plant. This includes insects like mosquitoes, fleas, aphids, some beetles, ants, and more. Not only will peppermint keep these little boogers at bay, but it can actually kill them if they crawl over areas soon after spraying.

Peppermint is also commonly used to repel rodents like mice (apparently, the overwhelming smell confuses their senses). Raccoons also hate the smell.

Are there any downsides to using a peppermint-based repellent?

Are Peppermint Sprays Like Rodent Sheriff Safe For Pets?

Although peppermint oil is generally safe for humans, because many furry pests find its smell to be repulsive, you might be wondering if the same holds true for your furry four-legged friends.

Briefly searching online, you’ll find there are some who swear by peppermint’s ability to keep their pets flea-free all year round. On the other hand, many claim that peppermint oil may induce aspiration pneumonia in cats, although it seems to be mostly safe for dogs.

In either case, just like humans, some dogs and cats may be especially sensitive to certain substances like peppermint, so be sure to speak with your veterinarian before using it to repel pests.

Are peppermint sprays like Rodent Sheriff expensive?

How Much Does Rodent Sheriff Cost?

When it comes time to buy Rodent Sheriff, you’ll have two purchasing options:

  • 1 Bottle (8oz): $10 plus $7.95 S&H
  • 4 Bottles: $30 plus $7.95 S&H

Regardless of which option you choose, can also purchase 1 “free” bottle at checkout for $1.95 S&H

All Rodent Sheriff orders come with a 30-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. Important note: By the time you ship Rodent Sheriff back to the company, you could lose well over $10 in S&H charges, which could be considered a decent chunk of change.

In order to request a refund, customer service can be reached at 866-881-1975.

We also found Rodent Sheriff for sale at a local Walmart for $9.98, which can save you S&H charges, as well as make the refund process easier if you’re dissatisfied. But in reality, you might not need to purchase a peppermint spray in the first place.

Can You Make a Peppermint Spray Similar to Rodent Sheriff?

Peppermint sprays like Rodent Sheriff are extraordinarily common, which you can quickly see by searching for them online. The problem is that most of these are priced somewhere around the $10 mark, but can probably be formulated in the comfort of your own home for much less.

Don’t believe us? Type the phrase “DIY peppermint spray” or “homemade peppermint spray” into your favorite search engine, and you’ll find dozens of different formulations. However, they’re all similar in that they can be made in minutes using ingredients that might only cost you a few pennies.

Perhaps best of all, when you run out, you can simply whip up a new batch instead of getting in your car (or ordering online) and paying a premium.

Granted, your formulations might not feature the “invisible natural time released gateway” found in Rodent Sheriff, but if we’re being honest, this doesn’t sound like much more than marketing hype. At the very least, the company doesn’t provide any information about this, or how it’s different than anything else on the market.

Finally, these formulations won’t be “tested by an independent lab” like Rodent Sheriff—but again, we’re not told what Rodent Sheriff is tested for, or how this is meaningfully different than the competition or what you can create on your own.

Will Rodent Sheriff Help You Lay Down the Law?

When it comes down to it, we have little doubt that Rodent Sheriff could help you keep away unwanted pests like mosquitoes, fleas, aphids, some beetles, ants, mice, raccoons, and more.

In this case though, we think it’s less a question of effectiveness than it is one of value. In other words, considering that you could formulate something very similar to Rodent Sheriff for a couple bucks or less in your kitchen, some might think it’s difficult to justify the higher price and extra effort (e.g. ordering online or driving to the store) associated with a pre-made peppermint spray like Rodent Sheriff.

If you decide to place your order, the good news is that Rodent Sheriff comes with a 30-day refund policy. However, you’ll probably end up losing more in S&H charges than you’ll receive as a refund, so only you can decide if it’s worth rolling the dice.

    I have sprayed Rodent Sherrif all around the inside of my house including baseboards, doors, and windows and even directly on spiders, ants, and cockroaches. I have found this product to be ineffective. The spiders reappear in their webs within hours of sprayed application. Ants and cockroaches come back or new ones have taken their place and spraying every day for a month hasn't changed frequently of seeing these bugs. It hasn't deterred mice from coming into my house either. I have cats to hunt the mice but Rodent Sheriff hasn't stopped mice from coming inside.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This spray kept all ants away, we had ants really bad on countertops. Haven't seen one since we sprayed and we even have crumbs out and usually they're all over a small crumb. Not one have we seen since this spray and it smells great!

    Worthless

    • Iowa,
    • Jan 26, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I recently bought two bottles of Rodent Sheriff and started using it right away. Every day we still find plenty of mouse droppings on our stove and countertops.

    We have completely used one of the bottles and the second bottle is almost gone as well. We ended up buying a regular old mousetrap, baited it with peanut butter, and we had a dead mouse in the trap this morning.

    I have read that people either love the product or detest it. I am one who detests the product. I can't understand why the product works for some people and does nothing for others. I won't spend any more money on this product.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    More than ever

    I purchased Rodent Sheriff from the As Seen On TV deal and not only did it not work it seems like I have more mice and rodents then before. Do not waste your money on this product! It's better and cheaper to buy a cat.

    Ripoff

    • Corinth, MS,
    • Oct 17, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This Rodent Sheriff is just a ripoff, and it does not work. I spray it two to three times a day and all it does is run the family out of the house but the rodents are running happy-go-lucky. People, don’t waste your money because it doesn't work.

    I rated with one star only because I would let me enter the comment without a star rating, but I really think zero stars is the real rating in my opinion.

    It only smells of peppermint maybe a day or two. I used it on counters on the mop and even sprayed doorways. I still see mice which I trapped on the sticky traps, so I would recommend making the peppermint spray if that's what you prefer; it's much cheaper because you will need to use it daily.

    I bought several bottles to treat my little one bedroom home. I also gave my auntie one, and we both have more mice than we started with. Leave this product on their website. Do not buy, please! If I could give zero stars, I would! Very, very disappointed.

    Don't waste your money

    I purchased this product from Walmart, and it is one of the worst purchases I have ever made. Not only does it not work, but I swear the mice threw a party. They did not seem to mind, in fact, they were braver just going back and forth through the area that was treated. I purchased two bottles in hopes that it would work. I treated everything from entry ways to counter tops and nooks and crevices. It does NOT work as advertised!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I sprayed my mother's kitchen because of ants. The next day the ants were worse than they were when I sprayed. Save your money; this product is useless.

    Doesn't work

    • Monument, CO,

    I was excited to get my Rodent Sheriff order and when it arrived, I sprayed my garage where I keep my dog food. I sprayed all the way around the food and entry way and set a test of four pieces of dog kibble next to the container. Next morning I ran to the garage and opened the door and not only was the food gone, they actually pooped on my door threshold, which was also sprayed.

    Very disappointed and will return the product.

    I'm very disappointed

    First of all, I was on the phone trying to order the product and I changed my mind on the order because it was asking too many questions, so I hung the phone up after putting my Visa card information in over the phone.

    Then some days later I see where they took the money out of my account ($20.79) and I never actually finished with the complete transaction of paying for the items. Then on top of that, when I got the products, the peppermint spray doesn't even work; it seems like it attracts them to it more.

    So I'm very disappointed, and I would like all my money back, plus the shipping and handling because I didn't authorize the transaction in the first place. The nerve of them.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
