How to keep Spiders and Cobwebs Away from Your Home

Spiders and cobwebs go hand in hand. And you don’t want them in your home. But eliminating them is a challenge because they can be spread across all corners of your house and multiply quickly.

In fact, they can make your home sweet home look like a haunted mansion. Hence, sweeping away spiders and cobwebs at frequent intervals is crucial.

Below listed are a few ways to make your home spider-free. However, doing it all yourself can be tedious, so feel free to ring Beacon Pest Control. We’ll do it all for you quickly and affordably.

6 Easy ways to keep spiders away and remove cobwebs

1. Seal the Gaps

To get rid of spiders and cobwebs, you must first find their paths to get in– gaps, holes, corners.

When you identify them, you can seal those areas quickly. So, what are you waiting for? Start your inspection and fill those unnecessary gaps. It is one of the smart moves to prevent pests from entering your home.

2. Regular dusting makes a difference

Take a small piece of cloth and start dusting. Your home’s furniture and other objects should be dirt-free if you want spiders to stay away from them. Do it more often to remove any eggs or past cobwebs laid by spiders.

3. No more leftover foods

Leftover food items, when kept out, can attract bugs. And spiders prey on those bugs. Basically, it’s a food chain!

If you want to avoid this food chain occurring in your house, try to store leftover foods in the refrigerator or give away the leftover food to the needy.

Also, remember to clean your dishes and sinks to avoid attracting pests inside your home.

4. Use peppermint spray

Peppermint is something spiders dislike most, but is pleasant and beneficial to you.

In fact, try using a homemade peppermint spray to eliminate spiders. Here’s how you can make one:

Combine water and several drops of peppermint oil in a spray bottle; mix it well and spray this all over your house.

Remember to give special attention to the corners and curtains.

5. Let in the light

Bugs love light and process everything there. However, spiders are different. They love and enjoy staying in darker places. So, open your blinds and curtains to let in more light and discourage spiders from colonizing your space.

6. Keep plants away

If you have plants by your home’s entrance, you should know that spiders often hide in them.  It’s one of their favourite places.

Therefore, keep outdoor plants away from home entrances and windows if you want to eliminate spiders.
