If You Do These 6 Things, You’ll Never See another Spider in Your Home Again

When the summer comes, all the insects come with it. Some can scare the hell out of us. The potential of the commercial spider and bug repellents is limited, but they are full with dangerous chemicals. Instead of poisoning yourself with them, why don’t you try natural ways to get rid of the nasty spiders?

Cedar

You can keep spiders away from your closets, by placing cedar blocks in your cupboards and closets, as well as your garden. Additionally, you can purchase cedar hangers and forget about spiders, as well as moths, near your clothes!

White Vinegar

You probably already know that vinegar is one of most versatile items you can use in your home. Its smell keeps ants, mosquitoes, and spiders at bay. You can prepare a natural repellent spray, by mixing 1 part vinegar in two parts water, in a spray bottle, and spray all around the house and the yard.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Spiders hate peppermint as much as we love it! You should make a natural repellent, by mixing 8 drops of essential oil, with a bit of liquid dish soap, to help spread the oil molecules in the water in a spray bottle. If the solution does not smell minty enough, you can add 8 more drops of peppermint essential oil. Shake the bottle well, and then spray it all around the house.

Furthermore, you can mix vinegar and peppermint, and prepare another natural repellent.

Chestnuts (and other tree nuts)

Tree nuts like chestnuts, walnuts, and horse chestnuts are effective in repelling spiders as well. Their scent includes a chemical which spiders cannot tolerate. You should place several on the windowsills and you will quickly solve this issue!

Keep it clean!

Your home should be absolutely clean in order to prevent these unwanted guests. This means you’re your floors should be vacuumed and swept. We also advise a seasonal de-clutter, and you will be surprised how much space you actually have at home!

Furthermore, make sure you also clean the outside part of the house. If you have a lawn, it should be cleaned of leaves, sticks, and clippings. Additionally, you should investigate whether you have some gaps in the doors or window sills. If you live in an apartment, regularly clean the balcony and windows.

If you are one of those who are continually struggling to maintain their home spider-free, then, these tips will definitely be of great help!
