I'd prefer to use the flammenwerfer to repel any black widows

This place was infested with Black Widows until I started using this:

It's expensive, but man, it sure does work.

"hard to kill unless they get the poison in their mouths."

It contains Bifenthrin. All they have to do is touch it.

Me neither, although spiders don't really bother much.

No, I haven't. It's been a long while since I've had any around, but I'm not sure peppermint oil would be potent enough to really get rid of them. It would be great if it did work ... let me know!

I will! Don't know if it kills them but I've been dropping it around where I see their webs. We'll see.

The cool thing about New Zealand, we have no snakes or dangerous predators, the only spiders you have to watch out for only live in remote parts of the island and the most dangerous thing that is non human is a boar in the forest you pissed off..... I couldn't imagine living somewhere that I would have to take spiders and snakes and shit into account.

For me, when I lived out in the country a few lifetimes ago, it was scorpions you had to watch out for. Had a few black widows, but not nearly as bad as those dang scorpions. Got stung a couple of times by them, but always had Benedril on hand to counteract.
