Re: Dealing with spiders at the dock

The dryer sheets are still working pretty good. I haven't seen a spider inside the boat in a while now. They still build webs on the outside though.

Re: Dealing with spiders at the dock

I found a spider walking along in a hidden space on my boat... in the middle of last winter. It had been sub-freezing for a few months!

Re: Dealing with spiders at the dock

What is it with critters on boats. I've lately been in a battle with the $#&(^! yellow jackets. They seem to seek out every hole or small space on my boat instead of the perfectly good, numerous TREES all around where the boat is blocked!

Re: Dealing with spiders at the dock

I'm not suggesting you do the following...but, back on the farm in west Texas, my Papa used to douse them with kerosene. It killed them instantly. Maybe in a squirt bottle. You're call. Good luck.
