    Get some salt and spray it aroung the perimeter of the house. Just about a foot or so from the wall outward. Salt burns the insects "feet" and therefore they will not try to come up to the house. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    BTW, keep the salt off any concrete sidewalks or driveways. Straight salt will eat thru the concrete and cause it to flake. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    What would you do with that? Spread it around the house?

    We have a problem with spiders in my house...

    It's a powder, spread in inn the corners, cabnets, and along the edges of each room. I even do it around the outside of the house. Use it anywhere you see the spiders.

    Wood ants if thats what they where and not termites are more of a nusiance than a trouble, they don't eat wood, they forage on the ground or in trees just like regular ants. Make sure you don't have any tree limbs or bushes up against the house also. Good luck
