good idea ,might try that.I was wondering if they were coming from under the boards in the cupboards( the floor is tiled) as the outer wall gets alot of damp and its 12ft under the boards which might be where there coming from,I don't know,its a battle.

kale is a lovely veg,not only to eat but will provide all through winter some green s for the table,just keep picking a few leaves from a couple plants,save a fortune.

good point this old house is rather suffering with the damp,and the spray is a  spray for insects but I don't like  using it and it did nothing  .I suppose I can live with them but prefer if they lived in the garden away from my plants.
