For you guys with spider problems: the best product I've ever used was BENGAL ROACH SPRAY. Any others out there?
Love those disco balls :-)

My boats are stored in fresh and salt water. The one stored undercover in fresh water is plagued with spiders. The one in salt water is not. For some reason it appears that spiders avoid salt water environment.

Just a thought: at our yacht club we had a terrible problem with geese on the lawn. Tried lots of ways to get rid of them as they make quite a mess. Then we tried a cutout of a black dog. The geese disappeared---for a few days. Once they got used to it they returned. Then we tried moving the "dog" to a new location every couple of days. Viola, no more geese. So perhaps the disco balls, etc. would continue to work if they were relocated every now and then. Maybe the birds get used to them never moving.
