Why Mint-X Technology?

Everyone knows that awful feeling you get when your leave your home in the morning, only to realize that some pesky little rodents riffled through your trash the night before, leaving your front lawn covered in stinky, smelly garbage. In 2003 we set out to find a solution to this oh too familiar problem.

After extensive testing, we finally found our answer, and Mint-X Rodent Repellent Technology was born. Our Patented Technology is the only EPA Registered safe and effective solution on the market. We use the highest-quality mint essential oils to naturally repel raccoons and rodents, keeping them away from your trash and neutralizing garbage odors in your kitchen. With Mint-X, you never have to worry about a great morning getting trashed!

    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.

    Five Stars! They smell wonderful, which is great for pets inside the house and pests outside the house.

    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.

How It All Began…

As a leader in plastic bag manufacturing for over 50 years, our founder felt compelled to respond to his clients' pleas for a solution to the overwhelming rodent and rat infestation problem facing building owners, housing authorities, food service providers and municipalities in every major city in America.

After years of research and testing, he developed a sustainable, low-cost solution - a trash bag that repels rats, raccoons and rodents, but remains perfectly safe for human handling. Since 2008, Mint-X has made pest management more effective for both professionals and consumers alike, eliminating the problem of foraging rats and raccoons at the source.

Today, you can find trash bags with Mint-X Patented Rodent Repellent Technology at retailers nationwide, and are available for indoor, outdoor and commercial use. Mint-X is proud to be considered an integral part of pest management for thousands of people and buildings across the country.
