The 4 Best Ways to Keep Spiders Out of Your Home

09 Jan '18

black widow spiderIt's no secret that some spiders are necessary for keeping disease-carrying pests at bay. But when it comes to having them inside the house they can be quite the nuisance.

Luckily, there are many ways to keep spiders out of your home for good without too much hassle.

The All-Natural Approach

If you're worried about chemicals in and around your home, there are some natural repellents that will keep spiders away. They're safe for both kids and pets, which is a bonus.

The first one is vinegar. It's cheap and easily accessible, and not to mention good for plenty of other things around your home. (You probably already have some.) Secondly, there's peppermint oil.

It may be more difficult to get a hold of, but will work in the same way as the vinegar repellent. Simply fill a spray bottle with whichever you've chosen to use and spray in cracks, crevices, and holes in and around your home.

Electronic Spiders Repellent

The easiest way to keep spiders and other pests away would be with electronic devices. They're good for roaches, ants, flies, spiders, and even rats and mice. All you need is a low-lying plug with a free socket that you can insert the device into.

Leave it, and forget about it; your home will be completely pest-free and you'll have one less thing to worry about. They start at a low to medium price range, and while some are more modern and offer extra features, they work the same way and give the same results. Look for these in your local home improvement store. And don't be afraid to ask an employee to help you select the best one for your home's layout.

DIY Spraying

You're spoiled for choice if you choose to use a store-bought spray. There are hundreds of brands ranging in strengths and formulas specifically for spider removal and prevention. It works just like the natural repellents in that you spray in all the cracks and crevices inside the home.

However, with this choice you'll also want to spray the perimeter of your home's exterior. These sprays can take time to settle. They can also be harsh for kids and pets. So, it's best to keep a close eye on where you've sprayed so your little ones don't go near. Always check the bottle's instructions before applying the spray.

Leave It to the Professionals

The last most obvious choice is to hire a professional pest control service to spray your home. While this is the most expensive choice, it's also the most effective. We know the best places to spray, including the spots you wouldn't think of, and we do an incredibly thorough job.
