Cedar Wood Mulch

Hi! interesting read about carpenter ants!

When I moved into our new place, I found spiders, ants, and earwigs all around the foundation of our home. I pulled out all the landscaping around the foundation, dumped servin dust and put new soil down. When I replanted I put in rose bushes, a layer of newspaper then CEDAR mulch! No more bug problems!

We used to get all types of spiders in our house, the big hairy kind! Now we get none. It has been 10 years now.

This worked for me.
