Does rat repellent spray work?
Similarly, you may ask, does rodent repellent spray work?
There's no scientific evidence that any mouse repellent works. Next time you are at the hardware store remember there's nothing in place to guarantee that they will remove a mouse infestation. Mice can get used to the spray or avoid it all together. Repellent sprays are only short-term solutions to long-term problems.

Also know, what scent will repel rats?
Because of their highly developed sense of smell, rats are very susceptible to certain odors. Peppermint oil, castor oil and citronella oil all drive rats away. Use cotton balls soaked in these oils, or just spread a little oil around where the rats are staying, and they'll leave for less pungent climes.
