Answer: Yes, mice feel at home in straw mulch
Explanation: Pine needles on their own do not necessarily attract rodents. When the layer of needles is deeper than 3 inches, especially in cold weather or near the end of autumn, it becomes an attractive area for some burrowing rodents. At such a depth, the mulch is fluffy and deep enough to burrow within, providing an ideal hidden nesting area for some rodents. Rodents nesting in pine straw mulch may chew on surrounding plant roots and stems since this food source is so convenient for them
