I don't really have a problem with other bugs, like roaches, crickets, earwigs, etc. But spiders REALLY get under my skin. When I see them, my heart stops. So usually I get someone else to get rid of them because I hate getting too close to them. This repellant eliminates a lot of the uncomfortability that I have with spiders. It keeps them away, and I hate to say, it does kill them. It's great because not many products eliminate spiders but this product has a main purpose to. The scent is uncomfortable but it's worth it.
