How to deter Field Mice?

Last year I was left with virtually nothing thanks to a few little field mice. What's the best way to deter these critters?

C4? - kidding. Actually not kidding.

I noticed a new hole last week in the middle of my cleared ground bed that I was planning on putting my roots in this year. And there was a little field mouse sitting next to it, bold as brass, out in the sunlight.

I'm not a violent person but seriously I am down to zero tolerance. image

    You need a cat image

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
  • I agree Dove, my cat is an expert on field mice.
  • True. When I intially got mine, birds disappeared as well image. Fortunately they've come back but the mice haven't.
