Spiders and how to not get them in your house

34 replies
Found 26th Sep 2009
Just got back from my mum's house and she told me about something she read today, apparently Spiders HATE the scent of conkers, so if you put one in every room you should have no problems with these big creepy crawlies, worth a try, but now to find some conkers

i would miss them as i was never any good at conkers !

How true is this? There is a massive spider currently roaming the house recently but I was with my daughter conker collecting today so I have some on standby......

If it work's i'll eat my conker's :w00t:

Even though I don't like spiders I'd rather have them than the bugs they eat.

So conker trees don't have any spiders in them then?:whistling:

Yeah I heard that too - gonna leave the conkers outside as my little one loves spiders and collects them, they are all over the place

So if you ever find yourself in a Jungle and don't like spiders, sleep under a conker tree........ two problems with this 1. You proberly won't find a horse chestnut in a jungle and 2. You'll proberly get eaten by a tiger

More fun trying to get the spiders by throwing conkers at them !

Cheers :thumbsup: I will remember this next time im lost in the jungle :whistling:

i thought I heard is was putting them in the corners of the room, so 4 per room mostly?

God I hate spiders, I might try this out, but I don't see many spiders in my house anyways.

well i think they may prefer to come to yours then, as i just killed one :w00t::w00t:

I got a spray from Betterware, its called Spider Stop and its made from conker essence. You spray it round your doors and windows and any gaps and 'no more spiders'.

I have to admit I have not seen any this week since spraying it, so hopefully it works :thumbsup:

Spiders are lovely.

True, you swallow about 10 a year in your sleep, so next time you wake up with a rough taste in your mouth you will know why.

I don't mind them at all, just can't stand things with wings :x

If you put conkers in the corners of the room and the spiders don't like them, will the spiders not come into the middle of the room where you are sitting/sleeping?????

Never heard of that, this time of the year its best to keep all your windows close, they like to come in now.
