Spiders

Post by pizzie »

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I have spiders in the house, or more specifically MY BED!
I want to repel the spideys, but am afraid citrus oils and/or lavender oil might harm the Crabbie-friends!?!?!

Any thoughts?

The crabbies live 2 rooms away from my bed, but I am chicken!

As of now it is unknown whether citrus oils or lavender oil will harm hermit crabs. If they are two rooms away then having some odour in your room is very unlikely to bother them. Perhaps refrain from using the oils in the hermit crabs' room too?
