Have you ever been startled because of finding a big spider lurking in a dark corner of your room? Do you find spiders occasionally or very often? Let’s talk about a few things you can do to help minimize the number of spiders you find in your home.
The best thing you can do is keep your home clean and clutter-free. If you have a lot of stuff, you are providing some great spaces for spiders to move in. They love dusty, dark spots that are undisturbed. If you have fewer items, it will be easier for you to keep dust-free areas. Don’t forget to vacuum the corners of your rooms and under furniture. If you want to rescue the spiders instead of killing them, you can get a spider catcher tool that allows you to catch and release them.
There are some natural deterrents that you can spray around your windows and doors. Spiders highly dislike essential oils such as peppermint, tea tree, and citrus scents. You can also make a mixture of vinegar and water to spray around.
