Q.Shade Plants That Repel Mice

Zone 46219 | Mitty1973 added on June 3, 2022 | Answered

I want to put flowers or plants around the foundation of the house that repel mice. They seem to be coming inside and it’s summer time. One side of the house is mostly direct sunlight and the other is mostly shaded with tulip bulbs in the ground. What do I do? Also I live in indiana

This is a difficult bill to fit! I would recommend catnip, though. This will repel rodents and many insects. Though they prefer full sun, they will grow to some degree in the shade. Wherever it will not grow, you could try sprinkling the dried leaves. This can help repel creatures, as well.
