No but apparently conkers repel spiders.

They don't care about smells. The best thing to use is borax. Sprinkle it all around the foundation of your house. It keeps all kinds of bugs away. You can find borax in the laundry aisle of your grocery store.

As the man says, conker will and so does the wood of the horse chestnut (conker tree) which is why it was used in the roof trusses of churches and places like that.

No, not unless they drown in it. All products are a myth. take conkers, where do you put them? in the corners? How does a spider get in? walk up the wall (wish i could do that) through any open gap, avoiding any borax or conkers. Spiders do not like large shoes moving at splat speed

Conkers don't work, I had them in the corner of my bedroom windows, small spiders still liked to run by them. As for lavender.. I made a pillow and filled it with the stuff to help me sleep and a spider actually ran from underneath it one night when I was in bed and across me! I've found the best way to get rid of spiders is to just keep an empty glass and a coaster handy to scoop it up and put it outside now.
