6 repellent plants that keep rats and mice out of the house


Dealing with rats and mice can be a nightmare for homeowners. They damage gardens, eat crops, and spread diseases. While traps and poisons work, they're harmful to humans and pets. Luckily, there's a natural, safe solution: repellent plants. These plants emit odors that we might find pleasant or neutral, but rodents find unbearable, making them an effective, humane way to keep these pests at bay.

Discover the Best Plants for Repelling Rodents:

Tansy: A gardener's friend, tansy is both fungicidal and insecticidal. Its fragrant flowers deter mice and various insects. It's low-maintenance and effective in decoctions for garden protection.

Elder: Often grown near storage areas, elderberry roots and flowers release a strong scent and a natural poison that repels rodents like rats and moles. Elder manure, especially, emits a smell that rodents find repulsive.

Wormwood: Known for its insecticidal properties, wormwood effectively repels rodents. Plant it near your garden or use a decoction to spray in rodent-prone areas. Dried wormwood can also be used in sachets to repel moths indoors.
