Good way to repel spiders anyone?

  1. May 18, 2007 #1
    aghhh I just killed a HUGE red spider in my basement. The roof in my basement is not done and it's filled with dark spots where they can hide... brrrr. god I hate spiders.

    anyone know of a safe way to repel spiders? I have a cat so it can't be poison (especially since he tends to put bugs in his mouth... he never actually kills them though, just plays with them and lets them go :uhh: part of his catch and release program I guess)

    Like, I know pepper repels ants from entering your house... is there anything like that for spiders? like a smell the don't like or something?

    Try giving it a hug. They hate that.
