As soon as September arrives and the tourists go home, it is me or do the spiders decide they have he all clear and move indoors in their droves?
I spent most of the weekend moving around the house methodically removing webs and baby spiders as well as the odd large and menacing one. Unfortunately only a few days later they have come back!
A while ago an auntie said that "in her day" she used to collect all the conkers from the trees and put them in breathable bags and dot them around the house. Evidently, as the conkers dry out they give off a chemical that spiders do not like, therefore keeping them at bay! We tried it last year and it certainly worked for us for a few months at least, I am now waiting eagerly for the conkers to start falling.
Does anyone else have any traditional remedies or methods that we could all benefit from?
