Can starting a vegetable garden attract vermin?

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

My sister and I are planning on planting a small vegetable garden in our yard, so far we know what to do to get rid of grass and such. But we’re worried about attracting vermin, we have a lot of mice and possum in the the summer as well as birds. The city just shut down it’s program for keeping the city free of rats and mice… and we just got rid of an infestation of mice in our house. Would this be inviting the vermin into our yard and possibly our house?

Urban Vegetable Gardening and Rats?

I just planted a vegetable garden in the only spot available to me, which unfortunately is a rat hangout. Someone told me that rats don’t tend to bother vegetable gardens, but I find that hard to believe. Any insight into how to combat them? I’m thinking chicken wire, but then again, they’ll probably burrow (?)
