The Spring Invasion

The Spring Invasion

I think I'm losing my mind! This morning I Swiffered my walls and ceilings. Seriously. I did the whole house.

It seems that with the onset of spring, the spiders in this town are making their appearance and I simply can't tolerate them! My solution was to go around the house and sweep up any cobwebs/spiderwebs that might be lurking at the ceiling where I can't reach them. I also got a spider or two along the way.

Honestly, spiders creep me out.

Aside from laying down spider traps and using bug spray (neither option is great for me - I wouldn't be able to dispose of the trap for my fear of the little beasts, and our pets/daughter shouldn't be inhaling tons of indoor bug spray), is there anything else I can do to keep them away?

Help!

Help!

I thought this might be a hollyhock, but after seeing a recent post, I think maybe no.
