OK I am TERRIFIED of spiders, the big ones anyway, has anyone tried this method of keeping them away and does it work? You put conkers on your windowsills or the corners of your room and it supposedly scares them off. Random, but apparently true haha!
I tried it because I'm fucking terrified of them too. I watched a huge house spider for ages just to see if it worked. The spider ran at the conker and sat behind it. Maybe this was a particularly brave spider, which was just trying to mock me or maybe it's just bullshit?
i don't know what happens if you use conkers. i, personally, like spiders.. but, only because i hate other bugs sooo much and they eat them... yeah! anywho, the pix of the bugs all magnified and what not.... pretty gnarly... pretty.... something i don't want near me or on me... um, ewwww....
good luck with your troubles. right now i'm trying to rid of a roach prob.
I'd like to die.. with the songs I love stuck in head....

that's funny, how can that be an american problem? cause I have never ever seen one over here, either. like you, I think they do exist here, but they aren't around, ever. bats are a bigger problem. or mice. fruitflies, or even rats. but cockroaches?
I've always known I'd be a bank robber. So judge all you want, ladies and gentlemen. Because you never did become an astronaut.
^It's definitely a city thing...but more specifically than that, I don't know. I live in the suburbs of Boston. I had never seen one until I went to LA and saw one wandering around on a sidewalk, but I know I've heard of people on the East Coast (even northern east coast like NYC) having cockroaches in their apartments. So it can't just be the weather?
never seen a roach [i think] spiders yes and they terrify me! i've heard the conker thing before but i don't know if it works. if it's any help- i did have a small spider in the corner of my uni house. there was a mutual understanding between us though- i didn't try and kill it and it didn't bother me [thank god] i then heard about the supposed magical qualities of the conker and one week later- no spider!
i still have some dotted around my room- just in case. and a crocheted one for the lulz
