Orange Spray Keeps The Bugs Away


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

If you have a spider or flying insect problem around your house, orange spray - or orange oil will get rid of them and keep them away. You can find orange oil at your local home improvement store.

I moved into a house on a lake that was overrun by spiders because the previous owner did not want to use pesticides that would contaminate the lake. So I heard that bugs don't like orange oil and started spraying my patio and outside of my home with it diluted in water and the spiders went away.
