Plant This Flower To Prevent Mice From Invading Your Home And Garden
Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium, sometimes called the "painted daisy," contains pyrethrins, which are used in both organic and chemical pesticides.
Mice dislike the smell of these flowers, so they’ll keep away from them. You can use their disdain for chrysanthemums strategically to get rid of mice or prevent them altogether.
Since these critters dwell under sheds, in the walls, or near your garden, you'll want to plant chrysanthemums around these structures, as well as the rest of your garden.
Chrysanthemums make great container plants, so you can easily put them in places where you don't have soil, like by doors and patios.
