The weather is getting warmer which means spiders will start popping up soon. Because of this, we must be prepared. The most effective way of getting rid of spiders here in the Pacific Northwest is to use a pest control company to knock them out for you. However, here are some more natural home remedies that focus on how to get rid of spiders in your home.
Why it helps: Many home owners praise peppermint essential oil, and it’s ability to get rid of spiders. The spiders don’t tolerate the smell of the oil very well, so applying it everywhere will reroute the spiders to another area.
How to: All you have to do is mix 20 drops of the essential oil into a 32-ounce spray bottle of water and spray the mixture of the areas you want to get rid of them.
Why it helps: Vinegar is hard for spiders to tolerate, so when they come in contact with it, it will burn them.
How to: To effectively use this remedy, mix an equal amount of vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray it directly on any spiders you see.
Why it helps: This remedy is not long-lasting, but it IS fact-acting. If you vacuum a spider or spiders, their bodies will not be able to withstand the suction and will get rid of them almost instantly.
How to: Simply take a vacuum and vacuum up the spiders that you see.
Why it helps: The most effective way to get rid of spiders other than using pest control is keeping them out to begin with. If you can somehow protect the exterior of your home and make it more spider-proof, then you won’t see as many spiders.
How to: By checking doors, windows and any potential area around the home that could have holes, it will help you become more aware of where the spiders may be coming in. It is important to seal those holes in order to keep the spiders out.
