Are mice attracted to house plants?
Question: Are mice attracted to - or feed from - common houseplants? We have a mouse problem in our workplace and our HR department wants all employees to remove their plants, citing that they attract mice. I believe it is the fact that most employees eat at their desk and store food in their cubicles. Can you please advise on this?
Answer: You're the one that is correct and they are the ones that are wrong. There would be nothing about common houseplants (any potted plant indoors) that would be attractive to mice. On the other hand, food stored in cubicles would be the first place mice would go.
