HI --- I was told years ago to use dog and or human hair and or steelwool , just dig it into the ground. They also hate constant vibrations , so installing a garden windmill is suppost to work. There is also gizmos that do the same thing, maybe the hardware store can help you.I have also seen these spicks that you push into the ground and they give off some kind of electrical charge or something that's irritating for them. I would think these would be safer for other animals, like the family dog , than putting poison on the ground which some people do. These little critters are hard to get rid of but maybe one of these will do the trick for you.

I live in Northern Michigan and am wondering if this would be a perennial in my area. Does it spread or become a nuisance? What height does it grow to? Thanks!

Andrew Keys added this to 5 Weed-Smothering Ground Covers
If it's fragrance you're after, look no further than soda-scented 'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). Brushing its foliage releases a lovely bouquet into the air, and it blooms lavender early to midsummer. I shear mine back a bit with a hedge trimmer after it blooms for a new flush of foliage and flower. This cool cat thrives in sun and lean, dry soil, and you'll be surprised at how far one small clump will stretch. It divides easily in spring if you find you'd like to help it along.
Finally, if it's a more casual spike you're after, there's always one of my favorites: 'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). I mentioned it in our article on weed-smothering ground covers, it's blooming right now in my garden, and it's still one of my all-time favorites. Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread out, because it may shade out other, less competitive plants.More:Great design plants
