Have you ever experienced rodents like mice in the garden? For me these pests are simply disgusting and for whatever reason they make me squeal whenever I see one.

If you've gardened for awhile I'm going to guess you've probably ran in to a few.

Did you know there are natural ways to remove them? There's also additional things you can do to make your garden less inviting for these little pests.

First let's talk about instant Potato Flakes, this is an in expensive tip and will eliminate the problem. 

I don't eat instant potatoes so I keep a small inexpensive box on hand just in case because I like to do things as natural as possible on our homestead.

Sprinkle a few spoonfuls where you think a nest is present at night and they’ll arrive to eat. After this occurs the flakes expand in the stomach and well they die.

NOTE: If you have pets keep these flakes out of their reach.

The Flaked potatoes is a great tip and I have many more that you may also find helpful.

Like planting mint, this wonderful herb can be planted in pots around the garden perimeter or sprinkle dried mint around planted areas. 

Mint has a strong scent that rodents don't like so it works as a natural deterrent and can also be incorporated through  oils.

Hope you enjoyed and the rest of my   tips can be found here.
