Do conkers stop spiders?
Lucy Askew, spokesperson for Hillarys.co.uk, reckons conkers do stop spiders from getting into your home.
She said: “Many people the world over swear by popping conkers in the corners of their rooms to keep spiders out.
“It’s thought that they give off a noxious chemical that will cause a spider to curl up and die within just one day of them coming into contact with it.”
But is this just an old wives tale, or does it really work?
