Five Tips to Prevent Spiders


Every home has spiders, but that doesn’t mean they are welcome to cohabitate with you. Use these tips and tricks to prevent spiders.

How to Prevent Spiders

1. Tidy Up

Spiders love small, dark places, so those clothes you have thrown on the floor are a great hiding spot. And if they are happy getting comfortable in something temporarily in one place, you know they’ll love all the nooks and crannies of closets that don’t get much attention.

2. De-Webbing

Spiders make webs to catch food, so the more places they have to trap insects, the more comfortable a spider will feel in your house. You can encourage your spiders to build their webs outside your home by getting rid of the ones they have already created.

3. Eliminating Other Pests

Spiders thrive on one primary food source: bugs. Infestations of fruit flies, ants or fleas, provide spiders with all the nutrients they need to survive and thrive. If you suddenly see an increase in spider activity in your house, you may have a more serious pest problem on your hands.

4. Use Natural Repellents

Beyond these basic tips for spider extermination, there are additional steps you can take to ensure that spiders are as uncomfortable as possible in your home.

  • Add Eucalyptus Oil: Sprinkling eucalyptus oil or spreading eucalyptus leaves on your furniture, in corners and in your closet will discourage spiders from building their homes there.
  • Use Vinegar: There are so many uses for vinegar, and fortunately, one of them is as a remedy for unwanted spiders. White vinegar contains acetic acid that harms spiders, so by using a diluted vinegar solution you can safely and successfully repel these unwelcome guests.
