Question - How to repel spiders and bugs from barn?

Does anyone know what I can get that will repel spiders, wasps, flies, etc from the barn? I was thinking I've heard that moth balls will do that, but not sure...anyone know and have some suggestions of things you have tried that works?


  1. Sorry I'm not much help in the repellant department. I would probably head to the local farm and garden store and ask them. On another subject, of course you can use that poem! Isn't it great!? I love it too, from the first time I read it, it sort of described me. I have no idea who the author is, but absolutely...spread it around and enjoy!
    Very happy to hear about you getting your beloved horse back.

  2. THANKS! I posted it tonight! I really love that and thats the kind of woman I want to be! :-)
    I got some bug spray one from wasps and the other for spiders...the spiders dropped and almost landed in my hair and if you know how much spiders freak me out you'd know how much I was hating that! You should have seen me running as I sprayed! I got them for temporary use, need to still find something that will last longer. I cant wait to get my horse back...hopefully, probably this week! WOO HOO!

  3. We laways had mint growing everywhere growing up but I'm not sure if that's why. I'd call the local extension office and see what they have to say.


Thanks for visiting the farm! We love comments and hope to hear from you! ~ Rachel, Norm, Kiddos, and all our furry friends!
