    I think spiders are supercool, once I had a pet wolfspider in a shoebox
    why are people so afraid of spiders? You're more likely to be killed by a champaigne cork than a spider (and that's a proven fact). Just leave them alone and they won't bother you.

    Well... Im just going to look for something to make them dont go inside... they can live happy OUTSIDE, I really dont want to go inside at 11 pm to check on the plants and get a 2 inch spider on my face on the dark... (almost happend the other day, the spider was holding on the zipper or the door, I open the door and dont see the spider until I was already inside )

    I used to be terrified of spiders, and I mean, if I saw one, I'd scream. I got over it by repeatidally telling myself how harmless they are and getting as close to them as possible. Corny and cliche, I know, but it worked. Think of them as fuzzy freinds.

    Yep... I made a search on the web on natural spider repellent and found various products using citrus peel extract, acording to some of the opinions the products using this ingredient will stop the spiders and some other pest like roaches, fleas, etc to come in (it looks like the citrus fragrance is not on the list of favorites on the insect world).

    I just need to spray on the perimeter of the greenhouse and arround the points where cords and hoses go in (this is where I think the spiders get in)...

    And I have never see ants inside, so usually I'm the one that "hunts" the ants for my plants from the front yard...

    At this point this sound like a relly logic and clean way to stop the spiders to go inside, I will try and see what happend.

    Just be glad you don't have centipedes in your kitchen! (like me).
