I'm Not Sharing

Son of a Gun!!

As I sit here tryin' to blog this morning I've killed 4, count them FOUR spiders.

Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE spiders?

Yeah, well, I do.

Yes, I know I live in an attic walk-up. Yes, I know spiders tend to come in as it cools off. (I had to turn the fans down last night - it got cold!!!) BUT - I'm not sharin' my home with spiders. Not. Gonna. Happen.

So - other than professional spider killers, can anyone tell me what I can do to:

a) kill the ones that are in here

b) keep the other sons-o-bitches OUT!!!

I put mothballs in my garage in Orlando and that sorta cut down on them. BUT I don't really enjoy the frangrance of mothballs, so I'm open to other suggestions.

I hate them too - I just had one build a huge web in my CAR. Looked over to the passenger seat and there it was, big fat juicy disgusting spider. I wish they and all the other insects could be eradicated permanently without breaking down the whole food chain!

We mix up a coctail of chemicals and spray around baseboards, windows, and anywhere else you think they could get in. Diazinon (sp) and something else... I call it my perimeter of death....

The house geckos pretty much keep them at bay here, along with a once a month spray... but my car is full of them... webs everywhere. I clean it out and they're right back.
I'm thinking of bombing it or use a gecko on the catch and release program. ;)

Need to buy some small foil tart pans and put hedge apples in 'em.

Aw come on, spiders eat roaches.......I'd rather have spiders any day!

Only BIG spiders eat roaches, Carmen... BIG Florida spiders...

The Spiders up here do nothing but creep you out.

And T1G?? They are soooo not "friends". Not at all...
