I have a spider problem but I don't want to use pesticides. I have 2 small children. Has anyone had luck with natural pesticides?

Spiders are sweepers of our home, they eat other harmful insects which are harmful to us. So do not use any pesticides on them. If you are scared of them just take them out of your home with the help of broom or vaccum cleaner.

Actually spiders are natural pesticides. The rid your house of many more bothersome pests. If they really bother you wipe down their webs with a soapy dishcloth and then spray the area with vinegar. Keep doing this and they will go away.

I've heard horsechestnut powder is good to stop them coming into the home, I think you put it around doors and windows, check the label carefully.

Many farmers in India use neem oil spray for indoor purposes.
