Will Peppermint Oil Drive Out Spiders?

What to Know about this Method

natural ways to get rid of ants

If you’re like many of our customers, you’ll try just about anything to keep spiders out of the way. And if you have kids or pests, you might choose non-traditional methods, like peppermint oil. What’s the deal with this natural solution?

How to Use Peppermint Oil for Spider Control

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

  • Make a mixture of 1-1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and 20 drops of peppermint oil.
  • Spray the mixture on windowsills, entryways, and where you find spiders

This method will take a little bit of patience. The house spiders you currently have will take some time to go away, but other spiders won’t make their way in with such a strong mixture in their way.

Excessive Spider Activity? Reach out.

Believe it or not, every home and business has spiders. House spiders are generally not a concern, but if you start seeing too many of this arachnid, it might be time to seek help. Spiders go where there is food, so you might actually be dealing with a different pest problem if your home is suddenly housing more of this eight-legged pest.
