Rock Layer KeepsRodents Out Of Buildings
A 2-in. layer of loose rocks around farm buildings can keep rodents out, says Dick Thompson, Boone, Iowa, who put rock around his machine shed and corn crib.
  The rock lays on top of a layer of plastic that keeps grass and weeds from growing up through.
  "I came up with the idea because I didn't want to mow next to the buildings," says Thompson. "Tall grass around buildings makes a good hiding place for rodents. Now there's no place for rodents to hide so I have a better chance of controlling them. If they do try to burrow under the rocks at least I can see the holes and do something about it."
