soap-caging bulbs

Dear All.
My mice problem was solved a few years ago by planting bulbs wire netting or
in plastic boxes  Most "wire netted pots" and boxes are open at the top.
Until this season a intelligent strain discovered that entry from above is
possible. Before I discovered 2 boxes of Moraea polystachya were completely
wiped out.  Then I put ordinary mice bait (decorticated aots) in all the
boxes to redirect their appetite.  Since a month no vertical digging has
been observed and I assume that this generation has disappeared. Covering
the pots and plants with wire netting creates numerous practical problems.
Remains to be seen.

Season Greetings
