More broad research led us to learn spiders taste with their feet, and they don't care for Lemon, Lavender, or Mint, so that's what our spray is made of. I picked up the essential oils and organic soap (to help the oils emulsify) at our local Sprouts. I am recycling an old spray bottle, because well you know, * QUE JACK JOHNSON SONG HERE* reduce reuse recycle! So here's what you'll need to do if you care to make your own.
10 drops of lemon oil
10 drops of lavender oil
10 drops peppermint oil
small squirt of soap (maybe 1 TBSP)
1 cup of water
Shake it up!
Spray it where you feel you need to!
(careful for wood floors and furniture since its oils)
If you're wondering how well it works then here's your proof..She came right out. And then.. I mustered up some courage and sent her to the after life, and in the words of my sweet friend Courtney "Let's hope she comes back as a puppy!" Can you believe it?? I actually didn't "relocate a bug" for once!
I know.. EEEeeekk!
