Using Hedge Apples to Repel Spiders?

I want to put hedge apples in my basement to repel rodents, spiders, and other pests, but I don't know how many to place down there. Do I put them in groups or singly scatter? Do I need 5 or 50? We have a basement that is around 1000 square ft.

I cut up squares of pantyhose-they don't have to be big and cut the hedge apple in about an inch pieces, gather corner to corner and tie in knots. Place where you know spiders are, like behind doors, corners, out of reach of children and pets. They really work!

Did they help with mice?

It is a myth that they repel insects. Although they do have chemicals that help repel insects the concentration of those chemicals is by far to low to have any effect.
