None of us wants to have spiders crawling around our home, so we all search a solution to repel them easily and quickly.
Yet, it is not necessary to buy those commercial repellents which are full of chemicals, as there are effective natural remedies which can help you get rid of those insects and keep them at bay.
Apparently, spiders hate strong smells, so they cannot stand scents like peppermint, and the ones below. Try them out and you will no longer have spiders around your home!
Spiders hate citrus, so you can get rid of them by rubbing citrus peel, orange or lemon, on areas where they appear. Moreover, you can also use lemon scented furniture polish to eliminate them quickly.
Spiders detest tobacco as well, so it is a god idea to sprinkle small bits of it on areas where they appear, or soak tobacco in water and spray the mixture throughout the house.
Insects do not like cedar, so its use will prevent insect infestations. Also, use cedar blocks inside closets and drawers and you will be thrilled by the results.
Peppermint oil is also in the group of things spiders hate. Therefore, mix it with water in a spray bottle and spray all around the house. This will prevent the appearance of spiders and will leave your house smelling great.
Chestnuts are effective in the fight against spiders as well. You should distribute them on the windowsills and keep insects at bay.
Spiders also do not like white vinegar, so spraying it all around the house will repel them.
Get A Cat
Cats are amazing hunters, so that is why rats, mice, and even spiders hate them. Therefore, they would not let spiders crawl around their home.
A Clean Home
If you maintain a high hygiene level in the home, you will see fewer cobwebs and spiders in it. You will prevent spiders by vacuuming and keeping clutter free, as you will leave them without food sources.
Do not let them In
If you keep the yard free of leaves, grass clippings, and clean, you will keep intruders at bay. Moreover, you should examine all windows and doors and see if there are any openings.
Additionally, the following natural spider repellent will become your favorite homemade product, as it will work miracles!
This is how to prepare it:
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- 40 drops of peppermint oil
- 2 cups water
In a spray bottle, mix all the ingredients, and spray on the doors, crevices, and windowsills.
