Here Are Some Diy (Do It Yourself) Methods:-
- Peppermint Oil
Some strong scents are great spider Repellent and we use them as fragrance in our houses. So, just take peppermint oil and add 15-20 drops of it in a spray bottle and mix it passionately and then just sprinkle in the corners of walls and spider prone areas in your house. Smell of peppermint oil is irritating for spiders so they will move out of your house.
- Cinnamon Oil
Like peppermint oil, spiders also don’t like the smell of cinnamon. Cinnamon comes in dried sticks which can be crushed and then we can take out oil from it. Just mix it with water and spray it in your home. This will also help you to relieve spiders.
Spiders also don’t like the citrus smell. You can use lemon and rub it on your skirting board Window sills and bookshelves. Use lemon scented cleaners, furniture polishers and burn citronella candles inside and outside of your house.
- Turn Off Your All Lights
While going to sleep, always turn off your lights. Lights do not attract spiders but light attracts insects which are the food of spiders. If lights are off then the flying insects will not enter our house and spiders will die from starvation ( death due to hunger).
- Always Clean Your House
Spiders like to live in dark and dirty places that’s why they make their webs on the corners of the walls. Walls are not cleaned everyday. So, always keep your house clean and regularly wash your walls to avoid spider infestation. Keeping the house clean is a good habit. This brings a good change in you and your house.
Vinegar is also helpful to remove spiders from our houses. We can use vinegar by adding it in the water and making a mixture which can be sprayed on the corners of the walls. This also works on the same principle like peppermint oil works. Spiders don’t like the smell of vinegar.
Spiders are a part of the system and DIY methods are a preventive measure to remove them from our houses and also protect them from dying. If spiders are removed without any harming then they can also contribute to our ecosystem. So, always be positive for everyone. If you are not able to do spider control then you can call local pest control companies at last.
