    I buy these bags because I live in the mountains and we have a plethora of wild animals. Everyone around that uses regular garbage cans and regular garbage bags constantly have the cans broken into. In two years I have not had a single incident.

    I live in Balto City where rats are a big problem! I bought these to keep the rats out of the trash cans because my dogs would chase them and knock the cans over at night. Love these bags, they do work! There are still rats in the neighborhood, but not in my trash cans!

    I had to get up at 4 AM one day a week to get my garbage out to the curb. If I put it out the night before the wildlife tore the trash bags open. These have worked and I am able to put my trash out the night before pickup.

    We live in a rural area with lots of critters that would love to get in our trash and since I started using the Mint X trash bags NOTHING has gotten into our trash! We’ve been using the Mint X bags for five or six months.

    Never mind those other scented bags, these are great. The mint smell is fresh, and the little garbage destroyers don’t like it. We live in the South and we get all kinds of interesting scavengers. I love the smell and the bags are thick. Good purchase – will buy again.
