I like to think I’m a reasonably brave person but when it comes to spiders I am trembling in fact the closer the creature is to me the closer I am to being described as hysterical.
I just need to know how to stop spiders from moving into your home.
I’m serious, I’ve felt close to passing out at the sight of a big one. Spider I mean 😂.
Last night was no different and the sight of 3 (yes three) hairy thick body spiders in my doorway was just too much.
I’ll be honest, for a quick second I contemplated going back to the pub and not returning home until I was drunk enough to not be bothered but I didn’t think I could afford all of that alcohol I’d need to get to that level.
In the end the urge to go to the loo accompanied with the embarrassment of a Uber driver watching me cry I decided I had to just do it. So I did it.
This morning I woke up with no hangover but slightly panicking over Spider-Gate, I stopped myself from google types of spiders new to the U.K. and decided I had to stop these eight legged creatures from trying to enter the house, my bed, ears or mouth 🤣.
Maybe everyone else had the same idea because the lemon plants were all gone but they had a banging deal on their gorgeous mint plants.
Things Spiders Dislike
So we already know about Lemon and Mint plants but there are other things that they cannot stand. Lime, Vinegar, Grapefruit, Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary and Conkers.
Now I mention conkers but I have tried this over the last couple of years and they didn’t work for me.
They did look good on the windowsills but nope they did not work.
From the list, it seems they don’t like strong acidic smells – so you know what to do.
