While most of them don’t harm humans, and even fewer are poisonous, spiders are still not something I like seeing around my house, especially not a nest. Chemical pesticides might help in getting rid of them, but I prefer natural, less expensive, and less toxic, ways to protect my home from these little pests. If it's in your kitchen, your bedroom or your garden, you are much better off using these natural ways to keep spiders out of you lives:
often go under the nearest thing around when they try to escape from
you, it's a strong instincts to hide in smaller places where they are
safe from their predators, and from you. What you need to do is to
remove as many of these things as you can, simply keep your home well
In addition to organizing your house
cleaning it on a regular basis will ensure that there are no spiders in
your home. This will not only help you even more in removing their
hideouts, but also get rid of a lot of their food supply. Thorough
vacuuming once a week, letting your garbage stay full for a long time
and cleaning the insides of cupboards and drawers are all highly
your walls are the ideal places for spiders to get inside your home,
hide from you and breed. Check all of your interior and exterior walls
for cracks and holes, if you find any, just cover them and the spider
menace will have no way to enter your home.
This is a great non-harmful,
non-toxic and highly effective way to keep spiders and many other
insects out of your life. The small from just a few teaspoons of vinegar
mixed with water is enough to keep spiders away.
Another great natural insect
repellent is peppermint oil. It is non-poisonous and smells better than
vinegar. While it doesn’t have a long lasting effect, it should be no
problem to spray some peppermint oil mixed with water around your
windows, doors and cracks once a week.
Another non-liquid solution for
spiders and moths is to sprinkle some cedarwood chips outside your home,
as well as in cupboards and wall corners. A big plus of this method in
my opinion is that a bowl of cedarwood chips is also a very nice
decorative item, something you can't say about chemical pesticides.
Place chestnuts on window sills or
baseboards in order to deter spiders form getting in. It is another way
that is both effective, and adds a little decorative charm to your
house. Your friends will definitely ask you about it, and will be amazed
and delighted to hear about your brilliant way of keeping your house
free or spiders.
