Herb to Keep Mice from Seedlings?
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Kathleen
Posted on: April 12, 2002

I have a mouse problem in my storage room where I start my seedlings. They like to eat my seedlings! Is there a herb I can grow around them that will repel the mice from doing this?

I am not aware of any herb that mice dislike enough to stay away from food (such as delectable seedlings!). Occasionally, we have problems with rodents in our seedbeds in our greenhouses and a combination of natural predators (cats and dogs) and coumarin bait works the best for us.
