Five Tips

keep spiders out of your house

You don’t want to share your home with any creepy crawlies. For some people, spiders are the worst pest of all to find in the home! Luckily, you have some easy solutions. Here’s how you can keep spiders out of your house.

How to Keep Spiders out of Your House

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 Scent

Spiders “taste” with their legs, so anything with a strong scent, like peppermint, is an easy way to keep them away. Here’s how:

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.
