I've heard about the trick with cinnamon (I have found sometimes it works, other times it does not) but I have never tried the mint trick. I know mint spreads like crazy when it's planted, so I want to make sure it really works.
I would not do it! Mint invades and takes over every flower bed and everything around your house. I even have it growing in the stone driveway...Can't get rid of it......it does not work for ants.......still have those too!
