Are There Any Plants That Deter Rodents?


The least interruptive method is the best method for pest control, including rodents. (That’s why we encourage preventative pest control.) There are plants that you can use to control insects but what about for biggers pests, like rodents? We have good news! There are some plants that deter rodents.

Plants That Deter Rodents

  • Mint
  • Garlic
  • Marigolds
  • Amaryllis
  • Sweet pea
  • Lavender

  • Wood hyacinth
  • Grape hyacinth
  • Alliums
  • Catnip

Do you notice any common themes? Many of these plants have a strong odor! While you might like the scent, rodents like mice and rats aren’t a fan. Because it is the smell that deters them, you can even sprinkle dried versions around you home to deter rodents from entering. This is a good option for the wintertime when many plants aren’t thriving outside.
