Will Limestone Around House Foundation Keep Mice Away?

I heard that packing limestone around the base of your house will keep mice away (apparently they don't like the limestone). Is that true?

Crushed limestone is typically used in some areas to create a drainage field around the house. Believe me: it doesn't do anything to prevent mice. Due diligence is the only thing that works. That means keeping things clean, in good repair, and trapping/killing the varmits. Hope this helps.
