I'm loving the difference in severity between serious responses (spider traps), and insane responses (Apocalypse Now, gorillas). Some good ideas, and some great ideas!

1996 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L
PSC Steering Gear; NP249 w/ new VC; Moog TRE's, Track Bar, Stabilizer bar bushings and endlinks, control arm bushings
Still no lift, and almost no paint on the hood

If you can find a couple of Osage Oranges, place them around in the Jeep for a few days and the spiders will vacate the area. I always place one in each of my vehicles when stored in the barn. No spiders... No webs....

What if it's a trap door spider and it's hiding--waiting to pull you through the floor!

What is an osage orange? The only thing us folks from near Philly know about osage was the move fire that happened quite a ways back,but I supposed that would take the spiders out.

ah,beer the cause of and cure to all of lifes problems ...Homer J Simpson... I am the guy in the red jeep!

@PhillipJ- Although I love the idea and fire IS THE ONLY SOLUTION... your method seems a bit extreme! Might I suggest an alternative?

No way, it totally worked. See that black Wrangler? Well the A-10 missed but the spider scurried his *** right down the drain hole in the floorboard and went off to start a family somewhere else...

Osage orange is the ball from a hedge tree.
But moth balls will keep bugs and spiders from invading your jeep.
And BTW hedge tree balls will too, but you can't get them at Wal-Mart like moth balls.

Dump one of these into your Jeep, don't come complaining to me though when it grew 30x its current size and got extremely vicious. At least you can see it now.

Use PhllipJ's method to kill it afterward.
