Feeling over-run by spiders but afraid to use harsh chemicals? There are several highly effective ingredients you can use inside and outside your house to make it unfriendly to spiders.

Here's what you do: dilute these liquids in some warm water and squirt liberally where spiders hang out inside and outside your home.

1. Vingar. Dang, you knew I was going to say vinegar. Well, it works.

2. Tea tree oil (melaleuca)

3. Peppermint oil

4. Citrus oil

5. Catnip

6. Tobacco (boil it and add a little lemon dish soap and spray that)

7. Eucalyptus oil
