Desperately Seeking Spider Repellent - Must Love Plants
May 17, 2014 11:12 PM Subscribe
My apartment has a beautiful walkway lined with flowers and overhanging tree branches. This is great except that spiders LOVE it here and I do not love spiders at all. I'm looking for a spider repellent that can be sprayed on the plants along the walkway so I don't have to walk through webs every morning and evening. The hitch is that the aforementioned flowers belong to my landlord, who I respect very much and who loves his plants, so the repellent can't have negative effects on them.

We've tried Spider Bully
Killed the spiders quickly.
Appears to have mostly repelled spiders from setting up camp along my doorway over the last couple weeks.
We used the entire $10 8oz bottle in one sitting (to kill two recently hatched nests and half a dozen adults).
Some spiders have returned to the doorway, so I'm not sure how well it actually worked as a repellent.
Not sure how the ingredients affect plants, as I know nothing about plants.
DIY solutions or available online is great. The "greener" the better.
