How To Get Rid Of Spiders

Spiders are mostly found outside of every home, but there are some you might come across inside your home. The crawling insect may not cause any harm to homeowners, but they can still be the reason behind having fears and anxiety inside the house. Not everyone is fond of spiders. Some have phobias with the pest which makes it hard to live in a house with spiders around.

On the other hand, the pest can cause infestation, especially if they are in a large group. When you see one, eliminate it to prevent it from increasing. A professional exterminator is the one you need if you want to eliminate spiders. But, if you want to do it yourself, check out these natural ways which are guaranteed remedies for your spider problems.

Household Items


If you have oranges at home and you tend to throw the peels, better stop doing it, especially if you have spiders at home. Orange peels help in repelling spiders, and it will not cost you much.

The crawling insect is not friends with citrus scents, and it can be the most effective solution for your problem. You only have to cut the peel in chunks and place it inside a container with boiling water. Soak the orange peel overnight and place the extract on a bottle and spray it on places where spiders are usually hiding.

If you don’t have orange peels, you can also use grapefruit and lemon. Whatever citrus fruits you have, spiders don’t like it, and you can use it to drive them away completely.

Another one to use for your spider problem is white vinegar. This household item has several usages, and it can be used for pest control for spiders. You only have to mix it with water and spray it all over your property or on areas where spiders are hanging like cobwebs, closets, corners, and more. Don’t forget to spray on cracks where the pest might also be hiding.

Also, if you don’t want vinegar or orange peel, turmeric might be the solution you need. The powder can be used as a spice but at the same time a pest control solution for spiders. You can make a paste out of turmeric by mixing it with water. Once you are done making a turmeric paste, put it on cotton balls which you can easily place on spider prone areas. However, don’t apply the paste on spiders which are dangling on furniture, floors, or walls because it stain is hard to remove.

Another one to use is onion. This item helps repel spiders as it can drive away the pest without difficulty. You only have to slice some onions and put it in a bowl of water. After, you can place it on entry points where spiders enter. Once they sense it, they will stop and crawl out.

You can vacuum the pest and its cobwebs which can easily remove the problem even the egg sacs.

When cleaning, don’t only focus on the inside, but also clean the outside of your property like the backyard. Your yard is also a conducive place for spiders to set their webs and if you don’t clean it regularly, an infestation might happen without your knowledge. You should prune the shrubs or branches which can be a place for spiders to stay. Keeping your garden mowed often will prevent spiders and other pests to come.
