Does Ammonia Repel / Kill Spiders?

I found spiders while cleaning my room and discovered I'd ran out of spider spray. I found some generic brand windex that said it had ammonia in it and drenched the places I thought spiders might be hiding in. Will this repel and or kill them?

Best Answer

Ammonia will kill a spider if you spray it directly on the spider, but why kill a harmless spider.
