  • Walnuts verse Spiders

    Has any one herd that if you put walnuts in your windows and any were that spiders can come in it will deter them from coming in. I herd this from some guys at work. The way thay said it,it sounded credible. Apparently the oil in the nut is what thay don't like.

        Never heard of walnuts, but hedge apples work real well. I put several on the sill board around my foundation in my basement. I first thought people were just yakking about it working,,,,,but they do work. Been cob web free for the last several years since finding out the truth on the hedge apples. Just make sure they are sitting in an old pie tin. They tend to rot and get messy after a few months. Not much of an oder either. Good luck.......SS

          Now is that black walnuts or english walnuts? Either way I don't think it works, now fox urine around the house will help keep out mice!

            How does one go about collecting fox urine? We have quite a few running around here, but they won't let me get near with a mason jar.

              I've heard that hedge apples work too but around here we call them Osage Oranges.

                Byacey, go to a sporting good store. Hunters usually use fox/coon urine for scent cover.

                  Thanks for the tip Nandy. Even if they let me get close with the jar, it's still difficult to get them to piss into it!!

                        I think you guys are just making fun of me now. My cousin tried to collect some skunk fat once because someone told him it was a good salve for skin burns and other afflictions. I don't want a similar incident happening to me!!

                          Set the jar beside the house and tack up a news paper to the wall. If he's got something to read he's more inclined to use the jar.

                            I dont know about skunk fat, but snake oil is used in my country for a number of ailments. I kid you not. Im serious.

                              It's a wonder i survived childhood. Clorox, kerosene, chewing tobacco, and occasionally diesel fuel cured everything.
