the blue grouse I cast some fruit which is supposed to ''repel spiders'' Haven't a clue what it was and have not seen one since BUT it did replicate killer blue grouse sacs.
Wingman, I believe the fruit that you are referring is called, among many similar names, "osage orange" and "hedge apple". I've seen them for sale in late summer and early fall in hardware and grocery stores. From what I've seen and according to Wikipedia, they don't repel arachnids or insects, so it's good to see they are useful for something besides carrying seeds for more of those prickly trees. Thanks for these GREAT WING"TIPS". This novice is appreciative.
