Repel Rodents From The Garden

Some plants can actually repel rodents from the garden. David's Garden Seeds sells most of the seeds you need to do it.

What are rodents? Rodents are defined as small mammals with extra incisors who like to gnaw such as mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, moles, squirrels, beavers, ferrets, muskrats, porcupines, woodchucks, prairie dogs, chipmunks, and a whole lot more. These animals can destroy your garden quickly if left unattended.

Fortunately, there are plants that these animals do not like.

First, you can plant herbs around your garden, sort of like a protective wall to repel rodents. Herbs that have the strongest smells such as mint (especially peppermint), catnip, rosemary, sage, lavender, oregano, and basil are the most effective plants at keeping these unwelcome creatures away.


They do not like marigolds and painted daisies, either, so plant them around the border of your garden.

Rodents hate the strong smell of garlic. Garlic does not come from seeds, but get some garlic bulbs and plant those in your garden to keep rodents away.

Another garlic tip is to chop garlic finely and boil in water. Then strain the garlic pieces out and put the garlic water in a spray bottle. Spray the bottoms of your plants to keep the rodents away. Spread chopped garlic around the outside of your garden.

Coffee grounds sprinkled around your garden can repel rodents as they do not like the smell of coffee.

Rodents do not like the smell of human hair. If you know someone who has a salon or barber shop, ask if you can take some hair out of their trash can and sprinkle that around your garden. It seems rodents do not like it when we humans are around.
