If you place dill weed in your basement, it helps get rid of spiders.

We have stink bugs, they are the worst!! We are very clean and until we moved into this house I never even knew what they were. We have a brook behind our house and people are telling me that's the cause...??

My tip is to make sure to get the little crumbs left behind! We all get the big ones, but the tiny ones are just what the ants (my issue) want!
