Here’s how to get rid of spiders in your home once and for all! They’re not coming back

Spiders leave few people indifferent. Most people put them at opposite poles.

Some are fascinated, others are completely afraid. So much so that science  defines this strong fear as a separate entity called arachnophobia.  These do not have to be the species of creatures that can actually pose a danger to humans. Even the little ones, who are completely defenseless, can cause panic at the sight of each other.

Many people also find them disgusting, as they are often mistakenly viewed as disease carriers and dust eaters. Meanwhile, people living in Poland usually do not bite, do not attack, do not eat dust, do not spread diseases, on the contrary, they eat insects that are their carriers.

Only three species found in our country can bite, but they also do not cause serious health effects.

However, if spiders cause you hysterical fear or disgust, it is better not to get on your nerves and simply drive them away from your territory.

How to get rid of spiders in the house

Most spiders prefer to live outdoors, but at the end of summer they end up in houses and apartments in search of shelter.

If the fear is high and there are many spiders, it is best to call in a professional to carry out the spider control treatment.

But there are a few things you can do to get rid of it yourself.

1. Spiders cannot tolerate the smell of acorns and chestnuts

To make the scent more intense, drill holes in it and distribute it in places where spiders can appear, for example near windows and doors.

Little is known about why they repel spiders. Some speculate that chestnuts contain harmful chemicals.

2. Mint and lemon

Spiders also dislike the smell of mint and lemon. Add a tablespoon of lemon or peppermint oil to 1 liter of water, pour it into a spray bottle, and then spray the areas where spiders nest. It is better not to spray colored walls as they can be damaged by contact with citric acid.

Such a mixture works well in higher areas near ceilings, curtain rods or high wardrobes. For doors or windows, you can put a few drops of the oil on a cotton ball, paper towel or cloth and spread it in different places.

In addition to mint and lemon, lavender oil, cedar oil, and tea tree oil are equally effective at repelling spiders in your home.

3. Vinegar against spiders

Vinegar is the best natural spider repellent. Mix equal parts water and table vinegar and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. And then spray directly on the areas where spiders nest. For example, in places such as doors, window sills, ventilation grilles or window corners.

4. Sprinkle diatomaceous earth on top

Apply a thin coat to basement windows before entering the home. This powder is made from naturally formed fossils of diatoms. It is safe for both people and pets.
When the spider penetrates the powder, the outside is severed, causing body fluids to leak out. The spider eventually dries up and dies. Article navigation
