Introduction:Cedar chips are made from the bark of cedar trees and have many good uses. They have a track record of moisture and insect repelling properties and are used in many places because of this.

  • 01

    Moth Repellent

    Moths dislike cedar very much and that makes it good to use at a moth repellent. You can purchase aromatic cedar chips from craft supply stores, pet centers or make your own by shaving blocks of cedar from a lumberyard. You can also purchase cedar oil, too. Put some cedar chips in a piece of cheese cloth or sachet and hang in areas where moths gravitate to.

  • 02

    Pet Bedding

    Put cedar chips in pet beds and cages to repel insects and absorb moisture. Small animals such as hamsters, guinea pigs and gerbils all benefit from cedar chips in their cages as it soaks up moisture and odors, besides repelling insects.

  • 03

    Flower Beds

    Cedar chips are excellent for flower bed covers as they not only repel bugs, but also insulate the roots of the flowers. An extra bonus is the fact that cedar chips put nutrients in the soil.

  • 04

    Shrub and Plant Mulch

    Ground up cedar chips make a good mulch around shrubs and plant due its insect repelling properties and decay is slower than pine or hardwood mulches.

  • 05

    Cedar Borders

    Cedar is used around houses, garages, and many buildings as it inhibits growth of weeds, reduces soil erosion and adds nutrients to the soil. The cedar fragrance is a nice addition to the benefits of using it.
