Every year, whether it’s redbacks, funnel-webs, or the typical house spider, we hear about a significant increase in the number of spiders. What’s a fun fact? A swarm of bees is more lethal than a swarm of spiders. The majority of spiders we encounter in our houses are harmless, and they are beneficial in keeping your home free of other insects. Regardless, no one like having a spider in their home – pun intended.
Here are eight simple things you can do to keep spiders out of your home and garden.
1. GET RID OF WEBS
Checking for and cleaning spider webs from around your home and yard on a regular basis keeps spiders from lurking and breeding.
2. CANDLES AND OILS
Strong fragrances, such as cinnamon, eucalyptus oil, and citrus, are repulsive to spiders. Cinnamon candles , eucalyptus and lemon/orange oil sprays can be used in locations where spider webs are common.
3. FILL IN GAPS If possible, spider-proof your home by filling in gaps between walls and behind doors to keep spiders out.
4. CONTROL THE LIGHTING
Light attracts insects, and spiders eat insects. Turn off lights in rooms that aren’t in use to give spiders a less-than-ideal environment.
5. DOGS AND CATS
Many dogs and cats will chase after anything that moves, making them effective spider deterrents.
6. INSTALL INSECTICIDES
Apply a pesticide to the perimeters of your home to prevent spiders from entering. You may acquire these from a variety of home and garden stores, or you can hire a spider exterminator to do it for you.
7. KEEP THE HOUSE CLEAN
Spiders like to hide in the nooks and crannies of a cluttered environment. Vacuum on a regular basis to keep spiders out. Keep wood and other rubbish in your garden to a minimum and store them as far away from your house as possible.
