    There aren't too many poisonous things out in these parts, but there are a few nasty spiders and I certainly wouldn't want to encounter them. And a little ways east, there are scorpions, which aren't exactly deadly but they hurt like crazy.

    Rose oil
    Citronella Oil
    Lavender Oil
    Cinnamon Oil
    Peppermint Oil
    Citrus Oil
    Tea Tree Oil
    and baking soda

    or any combo of these and sprinkle around the green house and in the corners of the green house and any other active spots

    these are harmless to humans but will kill spiders on contact not sure about plants so dont have a direct contact situation (if you dont all of them thats fine all of them do great)

    Drew, will any of that harm the plants if it gets on them? The spiders are mostly hanging out under the lip of the pots, right where your fingers go when you grab a pot. I can certainly use it on the floor and around the outside of the greenhouse

    nevermind, I see where you said not sure about the plants. I missed it the first time. Okay, that gives me something to try. Even if it doesn't get all of them, perhaps it will discourage more from coming in.

    all of the oils will kill them on contact but is organic soo it shoud be ok to use in a green house, sprinkle the baking powder around the green house and the oil's (any mix or number of them) inside
