Yep, Cayenne is the best. This is the ONE time that the dollar store herbs don't matter. (02/06/2007)

I love this one and will try it today! I've always had trouble with mice being by a gully. Thanks! HUGS (02/07/2007)

Cayenne and even curry powder ("hot" spices) are also very good for keeping ants away. Sprinkle under doorsills every 3 - 4 weeks. Cheers, Rose Anne (02/07/2007)

Also, mix some dish soap with water and mist the plants to keep bugs away too! (02/08/2007)
