Once spiders come into your home, they can be difficult to get rid of, especially if you don’t want to be exposed to the chemicals used in pesticides. Fortunately, there’s an alternative to using pesticides; some natural remedies can serve as ideal spider pest control.
To perform natural spider pest control, follow these steps:
Eliminate Objects that Attract Spiders
Spiders come into homes to look for a place to eat, live, and breed. As spiders eat other insects, they probably entered your house because they’ve seen other bugs inside.
Light attracts insects, including spiders. With that said, install yellow bug repellant bulbs around the outside of your house.
Make necessary repairs to screens and windows to keep flies and other insects out of your home. Seal all cracks and holes around the doors and dashboards where bugs can enter as well.
Clean the House
Dust ceilings, dark corners, and areas behind appliances, as these are where spiders often hide, spin a web, and lay eggs.
Spray water onto the area near the outside entrance of your house, as this is where spiders breed and live before coming inside.
Keeping your home clean and uncluttered can prevent spiders and other bugs from entering it. If you get a serious insect infestation, however, contact a professional pest control company immediately, as no DIY pest control can remedy it.
