How to Get Rid of Spiders
There are a few ways to get rid of spiders. These include using a natural repellent and insecticide. It is also important to keep your home free of clutter, as it provides hiding places for spiders.
You can use essential oils, like cinnamon, lemon, and lavender, to repel spiders. Applying these mixtures to problem areas is very effective. However, these should be applied carefully. Children, pets, and other people in your home should not be exposed to these products.
Another option is to purchase a sticky trap. Sticky traps are designed to catch and kill spiders. They are available over the counter at home and garden stores. Place the trap in dark corners, in crevices, and in wet areas. Keep the traps away from children and pets.
If you want to try a more natural solution, you can mix apple cider with pepper and spray it on the areas where spiders are most common. Vinegar is also an effective spider repellent.
For indoors, store-bought insecticides can be an effective method of getting rid of spiders. They should be used according to the label directions.
For spiders that are outside, you can apply residual insecticides to all areas where they may be found. Residual insecticides are usually only effective for a short period of time.
Spiders are usually able to enter your home through holes, gaps around windows, and baseboards. They can also be attracted to outdoor lighting. The use of yellow light bulbs, though, will attract fewer bugs.
