And now to segue into hedge-apples, the brainy looking product of the Osage Orange Tree...
for more about hedge-apples:

This time of year you can find them along roadsides....get at least ten for your house!

This one is on the back of my commode, but I usually place them in bowls hidden in the corners of all my rooms...

See them hanging from the tree? 

They will repel spiders for about 4 months.  Mice aren't too keen on them either, so I  place one on each side of my garage door...The fresh green will turn brown and will become hard in the bowls.  
Toss them or compost them.
