With eight legs and cobwebs, spiders are definitely something we don't like dealing with. These little guys find their home anywhere they can find a bite to eat. Luckily for us in Ohio spiders don't get too big, but some other species found outside of the United States are big enough to eat birds! Follow these simple tips and hopefully spiders in your home will be a thing of the past.
How to Get Rid of Spiders:
- Find Where They are Coming in and Seal It- spiders will sneak into your house through any crack they can find. No matter how small the crack seal it with insulated foam, which you can pick up at your local home improvement store.
- Remove All Webs- spiders will build webs all over the place. Using a broom remove all of them within your home. Spray all webs around the outside of your home with water to destroy their webs.
- Pick Up Clutter Indoors- spiders love cluttered places. If you remove clutter from inside your home there are less places for them and their food sources to hide!
- Keep Wood Piles and Trash Away From Your Home- spiders will hide by places they know other bugs (food) will be. Keeping your trash cans and wood piles away from your home, will keep spiders away too.
- Keep Food Sealed- food out in the open will attract insects, therefore attracting spiders. Keep pet food and your food sealed.
- Use Lemon Scented Cleaners- spiders hate lemons. Use lemon cleaners around your home and especially around entry ways such as window sills and doors.
- Spray a Barrier Around Your Home- spraying an insect barrier around the outside of your home will keep spiders and all other insects out. Weed Pro’s Home Perimeter Pest Spray is a great way to keep insects out by providing full coverage around your home.
