    Peppermint oil or peppermint plant. It worked wonders. 👍🏼

    Some one told me putting whole walnuts around those areas where spiders congregate will drive them out. As far as collecting them I haven't a clue.

    I use lemon furniture polish. Spiders don't like the taste of lemon and the wax prevents them from building webs.

    Horse chestnuts. Poke holes in them to release harmless chemical. Place them in corners of room. Peppermint helps too!!

    I live in a basement suite and my daughter is terrified of spiders. I was having major open-heart surgery and she came to help me out while I recovered. I made homemade spider repellent and it works great! I sprayed it around the outside door and window frames and I haven't seen any spiders. I made it in May 2016 and it is now March 2017 and still no spiders. The recipe is: 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water, 1 tbsp peppermint extract, 20 drops peppermint essential oil. Put in spray bottle, shake well and use.
