Apparently the conker thing does work! A friend of mine's mum has them around her house and says she never sees a spider. The lucky thing! I HATE spiders, but recognise that they have their place in the ecosystem and do have some uses (trapping and eating up more of the bugs that I don't like!!) so over the last couple of months I've been a big brave girl and tried to just ignore them (that is unless they drop on my head or run across my feet eek) but its situatio ridiculous at my house right now with spiders and I just can't cope with them any more. There are just simply too many in my porchway off of the garden (even though it has a door to shut out the outside world) and the front door to my house and the surround (bearing in mind I live in a house made of wood) are absolutely crawling with them. Huge great disgusting hairy long legged things. Urgh. Yuk. And I can be brave no more lol I just cant cope with that many and its difficult to keep them away cos there are so many that webs spring up over night in both places, attracting even more and I can't touch the spiders to move them so I can get rid of their lovely webby things! Am now resorting to conkers and some sort of spray which says it contains chestnut oil so I can hopefully get rid, clear down the webs and be spider free. Happy days lol Unapologetic wimpy type person when it comes to bugs, especially the eight legged variety!
