Has anyone used cedar chips for mulch to control insects??

I was going to try cedar chips around a row of my zucs to see if the it would deter the squash bugs! The bedding for small pets is what I had in mind! Wal Mart has a large bag cheap!

I am going to test these cedar chips on 1/2 a row on my zucks and see if they out proform the other 1/2 row. I will report back in several weeks on this test! especially to see if the squash bugs are repelled by the cedar!
