How to Get Rid of Spiders

Posted July 18, 2020

For many people, seeing a spider causes a pang of fear, and who can blame them? Eight legged, eight-eyed, furry creatures are not a pleasant sight in anyone’s house. 

Here are a few helpful tips you can use to help make your home less appealing to spiders as well as what you can do to keep them away for good. 

Knock Down Their Webs

Not all spiders create webs, but those that do are much lazier than people might think. Once their web is taken down, many spiders will give up searching for insects in that particular area and move elsewhere. 

Look for places around your home where spiders commonly like to stay

Spider-friendly, Low-traffic areas in the home:

  • Basement
  • Attic 
  • Around exterior lights
  • Crawl spaces
  • Be careful of live spiders

Turn Off the Lights at Night

The main thing that spiders have on their minds is food, and bugs, beetles, moths, flies, insects, and sometimes other spiders are on the menu. 

At night, outdoor lights attract all sorts of insects, from mosquitoes to moths, beetles, and other nocturnal insects. The more insects that gather in one place, such as a porch light, the spiders are sure to follow.

Turn off all the lights at night, and the insects and spiders are sure to calm down.

Frequent Cleaning

Even the most sanitary house can still have a problem with pests like ants, moths, or beetles, which are just some of the many insects that spiders are willing to eat. 

Vacuuming often will help reduce the tiny crumbs that insects eat. If there aren’t any insects around, spiders will leave in search of food.

Consider purchasing an automatic vacuum system that can run at night so that you’re covered during all hours.
