We know you’ve been anxiously waiting for Part 2 of How to Keep Spiders Out of Your House Naturally, so here it is! In case you missed Part 1, you can find it here!
Keep Them Outside
A great way to keep spiders out of your home is to never let them come in to begin with! Clear the exterior of your home of any spider hang-outs like leaves, grass clippings, or wood piles. Also, make sure all door openings and windowsills are caulked properly, so there’s no room for a sneaky spider to make his way into your abode!
Along with mint and white vinegar, spiders hate citrus. Use left-over citrus peels and rub them on your baseboards, windowsills and bookshelves to keep the spiders at bay! Even using lemon scented furniture polish can deter spiders.
Place cedar mulch outside around the perimeter of your home to stop spiders from getting inside. They hate cedar! Using cedar blocks or shavings inside closets, cupboards or drawers is also an excellent deterrent.
Who would have thought that chestnuts are a good way to get rid of spiders? Placing a few on your windowsills or along your baseboards can keep spiders from hanging out there. So don’t forget to add chestnuts to your grocery shopping; this is a perfect time of year to buy them!
Interestingly enough, spiders hate tobacco, too! (I guess that explains why you never see one with a big cigar!) Sprinkling small pieces of tobacco where spiders are troublesome can keep them away, or you can create a spray of tobacco and water and then spray the mixture all around. If you’re not a tobacco fan, just go back to any of the other eight great ideas to keep spiders away naturally!
