Cocoa husks as garden mulch?
Is cocoa husk good as garden mulch? Does it attract Rats? mice? I see rats and squirrels running in the neighbor's yard. I don't have pets. I have fig trees and hydrangea trees in my garden and back yard. I do not have compost.

It does make a pretty good mulch. It attracts wildlife just about as much as other mulch will, but it may not be as bad with bugs as a standard mulch will be.
Just make sure that you wash the husk well to remove any salt residue before you use it.
