Away with spiders!

It's that time of year again. Cool nights are bringing the spiders to your windows, and they are desperately trying to get inside where it is warm. Now is the time to vacuum the window screens with your dusting brush and wipe down the sills. Then try this all natural recipe to spray on window screens and sills to keep the spiders outside where they belong.

You will need, 1 cup of vegetable oil, 1/4 cup of dawn liquid soap, 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix oil, soap and extract in a container. Now in a spray bottle put 1 tablespoon of the mixture for every 1-cup of water. Shake and spray your spiders away.

    Nice blog, love the illustration, rather "Pig-Penish"

  2. Is "pig-penish" a Charlie Brown reference?

    Does the oil on the screen make it too slippery for the spider to crawl on??? I'm going to try this on a window or 2 because we have more stinkin spiders than anyone could imagine!

  4. I'm really not sure about the "how", I just know it works!
