"STAR BRITE Spider Away" is a non-toxic repellant that is safe to use around pets, the marine environment, and you. It works great.

Those pesticides are really deadly, and not something you should use on any interior setting. And used outside will inevitably leach into the waterways where they can be damaging, even lethal, to tiny but esential marine organisms.

The Star Brite product costs a lot more than the poisons, sure. But it works, and is safe.

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

Avon Skin So Soft keeps a lot of critters out of the boat's interior. I wiped on on the screens and not only did it repel the spiders, it kept the noseeums out, which is a blessing.

I've tried Home Defense Max, and it kills them on contact, but washes off when it rains, thus no long lasting effect.

Next, an electronic device - something's gotta work - eventually.

Cheers,

Gary
