> Bay Leaves--is it true that they keep bugs out of the cupboards?

Yes- had ants and nothing worked. On the advice of a neighbor, I put a bay leaf in each back corner of all cupboards and sure enough, no more ants. I did this years ago and still have no ants - all on the same bay leaves :)

Works for me! Fresh bay leaves work best... right off the tree if you're lucky enough to have one.
