How do I repel insects?

Insect repellent

Before you insulate your walls, sprinkle a little borax (like 20 Mule Team) in the wall cavities to help repel insects. It also works to sprinkle it around the garage, in cabinets, and in small openings around the exterior walls. It doesn't kill them, but they don't like being around it and will leave the area.
