I don’t mind spiders, but I have a wife who is terrified of them…
I think it is their unpredictable behaviour, the way they scurry around and often make straight for you (as if they know you don’t like them!). What bothers her most though – is when you lose sight of them. It drives her crazy knowing there is a spider in the room, but not knowing where it is. This is when I am called upon to find the offending spider at all costs.
Luckily though, my friends over at Herbs And Oils World also hates spiders and they found a way to keep spiders out of your home using Peppermint Essential Oil. If you want your home to be spider free, head over to Herbs And Oils World and check out the short tutorial. By the way, apparently mice hate peppermint oil too!
If you want to give this a go, you can purchase Plant Therapy Peppermint Oil for just $6.72 from Amazon. While you are on Amazon you can also get a Spray Bottle for $5.99 which is ideal for use with the peppermint oil.
