hate spiders

I found if I put horse chestnuts in the corners of my rooms the spiders stay away. They apparently don't like the smell of them. Humans cannot smell them unless you stick you nose on one. It works great here where we have spiders averaging 2" in size! Jan in sunny Victoria BC

    I am not sure what 'horse chestnuts' are. Around here (Northeastern
    Okla) we use Osage Oranges (also called horse apples). They are a
    big green fruit (about the size of a large orange) off of an Osage
    Orange tree. They are good for getting rid of most household
    insects. You just put them where you have a problem. They don't
    stink, and as they ripen they just dry up and get hard.

    Use a mixture of peppermint essential oil and water in a squirt bottle. Spray around door frames, windows, corners, garages, patio doors, etc...spiders HATE the smell of Peppermint

    great ideas for the spiders, not sure what horse chestnust or horse apples are tho.. does anyone have a or know of a 'multi pest,insect' spray or item like mentioned that will do many if not all bugs? I have panic attacks with any kind of bug, even lady bugs and catapillers. Sadly the bug doesn't even need to be on me, it could be across the room on the wall and I'll start having hot flashes, eyes tear up, get all sweaty with the rapid heartbeat.. any suggestions other than 40.00+ a month for orkin would be much appreciated

    Peppermint is used to deter mice as well
