I am looking for an organic way to get rid of black widow spiders.
I put fresh spearmint in my closets and under furniture to make sure I do not have spiders. I do not know if it will help with black widows but nothing lost if it does not.
I had an outdoor storage unit that was full of spider webs and spiders and when I put the spearmint in the unit was clean I also do not have anymore spiders in the house. No more spiders for me.
Is it dangerous to smash a female black widow spider in your home?

Black widows live in clusters because they just do not travel far. So if you see one you can be sure there are more around. You need professional help. Not just some person who comes to spray your home but a real professional company that knows how to get rid of them,
How do you get rid of black widow spiders? Is there a natural and/or affordable way to control them? We have pets and a three year old child to take into consideration while searching for a solution.

Small children and pets can easily be killed by a black widow bite, so keeping the kids out of the sprayed area for a while is a small price to pay, to make sure your kids and fur kids are safe. I'm a strong advocate for living green, but in some cases, chemicals simply must be used. (03/08/2009)
