Do you have a dog or cat? I have little experience with squirrels, but having another animal to patrol the yard could get them away. Also, try and see if the squirrel has a home in your yard. If it does, you could try and get someone to relocate it. Moving on to the mice, mint and lavender are said to be good repellents. Hope this helps!

I would use the plant itself. Just put it around the coop and the run. You could also add some rocks to make it look pretty :).
