Re: Keeping out Spiders

If peppermint oil helps where do you buy it, I have bought a spray to prevent them coming in but not sure of it will work. I cannot stand spiders I just panick , I had drain flies and it took me ages to get rid of them with Baking powder and vinegar down the drain , Sorry to say to you spider lovers but I have to kill them or they might bred more .

You do know that if you squash spiders, their eggs are catapulted around the house, and hundred more are born ? They also find the ear hole a cosy place to reside at night time
