Crocus predators

Speaking of mice and mouse-like objects, has anyone had problems with them 
in a greenhouse? I have a delapidated structure in which I over-winter a 
large collection of cactii and succulents (don't ask why I have these I 
don't know the answer) and amaryllis and I am having the devil's own time 
with something that is digging in the pots and eating the roots. I find 
the plant lying beside the pot, rootless, and all the soil pushed out of 
the pot. There is always open water in the buckets for the chickens so it 
can't be looking for a drink.

I am trying mothballs. So far the main effect is that the chickens, in the 
adjacent hen pavilion, are laying mothball-scented eggs.  :)
