What kind of critters? When I see ant trails, seeking access to the house along my foundation or walls, I spray a solution of orange oil (Orange TKO) and water. This seems to provide a temporary detterent.

The orange oil/water solution should work well for you.

One other option would be a cedar product from CedarCide which a very fine textured mulch.

Where can the orange or citrus oil be purchased? I have fire ants and noticed citrus oil and molasses is something to help with ants.

If you want a product that will work around door frames and weep holes that will last then you might want to look into the ECO-PCO dust product. It is a mixture of botanical oils that have been made into a dust form. Which in doing so allows it to stay where you apply it for a much longer period of time than a liquid. You can find that product at most organic nurserys but I do know you can find it at beorganic.com.
