About This Article
To get rid of spiders in your house, start by vacuuming everywhere in your home, including under furniture and in the back of wardrobes, to remove all paths and egg bags. Then, apply a spider repellent around the perimeter of your home to prevent spiders from entering. To make your own spider repellent, add 15 drops of peppermint, tea tree or lavender oil to a spray bottle filled with water. Next, make sure to seal any cracks around doors and windows with caulk and repair any tears in the window so that spiders are more difficult to get into. Move piles of wood, leaves or compost away from the perimeter of your home because spiders want to hide in these places. If your spider problem persists, you may want to use an insecticide to kill all spiders in your home. Look for non-toxic pesticides as they are safer, especially if you have children or pets.
