Need to keep spiders from entering your house? Chestnut essential oil works! Dab onto a cotton wool ball and smear along window edges and doors to stop the blighters from coming inside. They hate the smell. I sent some to my friend in Spain where they have spiders the size of dinner plates there and she told me it has worked. I bought mine on eBay in a Wiccan type shop for 5 pounds (about $7.50).

I have found that the best way is just to vacume them up using either a hand held vacume cleaner or the hose attatchmentof an upright. The vacume gets the spiders, eggs, and webs all together. The suction tears apart the spiders so they don't climb out to re-infest. That way, you are not contaminating your home with poison sprays.
I was told that spiders do not like the odor of hedge apples, the large, pale green, lumpy fruit of the hedge bushes. Just place the hedge apple on a small plate or in a small bowl and set somewhere near where the spiders are. I did try this and it seemed to work, though like most natural solutions, it will take some time. The hedge apple will, in time, dry up and you can discard it. Let me now if this works.
