The first thing to ensure that you’re going to do spider control in your home is by checking outside your home first.
Inspect cracks and gaps that can lead to your home if a spider finds it. Thoroughly seal all of those cracks with self-expanding foam or caulking.
Products for spider control are readily available at your local hardware store. Don’t forget to check your screens and windows. Spiders can easily get in through these places too.
Inspect your home’s outside exterior for any sealing.
When you have sealed gaps and cracks outside, you can start on the inside as well. Keep in mind that spiders have a penchant to feed on other insects so keeping your home free of all insects is a good step. Weekly home cleaning is highly suggested.
Use your vacuum often as this is one of the best natural spider repellents that you will ever use. Spiders love dust, and vacuuming dust keeps them away. They are also attracted to the remains of other bugs, so make sure you vacuum everything.
Spiders also like dampness. Usually, you’ll find this in your basement. Always clean your basement and discard any junk you don’t need down there.
Also, inspect under sinks or other places that could possibly be damp, such as water pipes. Insulating your pipes will discourage spiders from setting up camp in your basement.
Every week we clean and dust our homes but if you use Lemon Pledge furniture polish then you are using a natural spider repellent without even knowing it.
Spiders have taste buds at the tips of their legs which prove really convenient for you. Spiders hate the smell of lemon so when they walk on it they automatically get out of there as quickly as possible. This is a wonderful alternative to harmful pesticides.
During your dusting, use a little on the baseboards of your rooms as well on the floor inside the frames of your exit doors. Dust all your window sills as well as around your door frames.
This product can also be used on the outside of your home only you’ll need a little more than what you used on the inside. Don’t be surprised if your ants move out as quickly as they moved in. If you have laminated floors use some all around the room on the floors.
Don’t put it out too far from the baseboards just in case it can become slippery.
This dusting aid is a wonderful alternative to using pesticides or insecticides as spiders do help the environment by feeding off other insects and in turn, become dinner for other insects bigger than they are.
This way you are just driving the spiders away and as long as they stay outside you can live peacefully side by side dusting with Lemon Pledge is one way of doing this successfully.
