Our house seems to be a spider haven and while Halloween is getting close and I could just pretend the cobwebs are decorations I’ve decided I can’t handle all of these spiders. Mr. Awesome calls them ‘house spiders’ but I don’t like them and neither do the kids.
I know they are very beneficial in many ways but we just have too many. So in an effort to control them and hopefully keep them out of certain areas I made up some Spider Be Gone Spray.
Here’s the recipe:
Spider Be Gone Spray
- 1 to 1 1/2 c. Water
- 1/2 c. White vinegar
- 20-30 drops of peppermint oil
- Splash of vodka or other alcohol, optional
Combine all ingredients in a glass spray bottle.
Shake well and spray away.
Peppermint also helps repel many other pests and smells pretty good too!
