My baby bulbs have been attacked.  ...  Mice?  Rats?  And, more importantly, how do I stop them from taking the rest of my baby bulbs?

When I volunteered at the UCI Arboretum some years ago, we had problems with mice in the lath houses and greenhouses.  They enjoyed tasty snacks and loved to nest in the large pots.

Is it feasible to put screening over/around your pots? If so, you could fashion a "box" of quarter inch hardware cloth, with one side open.  Set the box upside down over the pots, then secure it either by wiring it to the shelving, or weighing it down with something.
