Cover the soil between your plants and along rows with a layer of mulch to forestall weeds from rising. I use water and spearmint round my home for spiders. I used to have a lot of spiders round my home and even discovered some inside. Since I started utilizing this mix I not have black widows which is nice because I even have small children who prefer to play outdoors. I use a tablespoon mixed into an old Windex glass cleaner bottle crammed with water. I’ve additionally found this mixture also works for sugar ants.
