My friend Julie-Ann’s mom, Cathie gave me this nifty tip about mouse invasion prevention. She said that planting spearmint around your house will prevent mice from entering. The spearmint is a natural repellent. She warned that the plant can take over if it isn’t monitored, but otherwise, it is extremely useful in that, as well as home-made teas, or pot-pour-ii! Thank you Cathie for a great tip!
