    maybe...

    This is a little bit out of topic here but still Im sure many of you have problems with spiders...

    I have found on my little green house already 3 big spiders, im not sure if they will represent a real danger, but I have a really bad phobia, some times is embarrassing ....

    what kind of spider repellent you guys use?

    N. Albomarginata, N. Ampullaria
    N. Bellii, N. Bicalcarata, N. Rafflesiana
    N. Sanguinea (Orange Pitcher), Cephalotus Follicularis

    A boot.

    They're harmless if you leave them.

    I hate spiders too dude.

    Ants, bees, giant June-bugs etc. I can take, but spiders? Nope. Not gonna have 'em...

    And I know that most are harmless and actually beneficial, but...... Just no way.

    It's a phobia thing.........

    Both Raid and Blackflag make a "special spider spray" for indoor home use. I think that they're nerve agents.

    Very low toxicity, mostly inert materials but DEADLY to arachnids. They lose control of their many creepy legs and often tangle themselves in their own webs. [sinister laugh here]

    In fact, most spray will remain active on walls, ceilings, in corners etc. for up to 3 months.

    Hope this helps.

    Home Depot sells an electronic gadget from Black and Decker that you plug into the wall. It emits a sonic pulse that is supposed to annoy spiders and prevent them from wanting to settle and reproduce. (I think it is mainly designed for rodents, but apparently also works on spiders as well.)
    I HATE spiders and got one for just about every room in my house. I have noticed a decrease in them--though this may be just because of the weather getting colder. (Incidentally, the package warns you not to use it near pet tarantulas--not sure how many arachnaphobes are concerned about this one....but anyway...

    I agree with Joel, leave them alone. Most are harmless and some species end up living in your pitchjers- a neat kinda symbiosis. Besides most are beneficial and eat anoying flies and other insects.
    I understand about phobias as I have about rats, but if they leave me alone I don't go out of my way to kill them. Besides when you start using chemicals no matter how supposedly non-toxic: you can still harm the food chain. Just my opinion.
