If you live in Palm Springs, chances are you’ve seen a spider or two. While spiders can be helpful around the home, they can also be annoying and unwelcome guests. Whether you’re dealing with pesky house spiders or more dangerous ones like black widows, here are three tips on how to keep them out of your home, and how Payne Pest can help.
Keep it Clean
The best way to keep spiders away is to make sure your home is clean and tidy. Spiders like dark, cluttered areas where they can hide and build webs, so keeping your house clean will reduce the number of places for them to hide. Vacuum weekly (especially under furniture) and dust often. Make sure there’s no food lying around that could attract other pests that spiders feed on. You should also keep an eye out for any cracks or holes where spiders might enter your home—these should be sealed up as soon as possible.
There are plenty of natural repellants that are effective at keeping spiders away from your home. Essential oils like peppermint oil, lavender oil, and tea tree oil have been proven to repel spiders when used correctly—simply mix a few drops in water and spray it around doorways, windowsills, baseboards, etc. Other natural options include diatomaceous earth and cedarwood chips—both of which can be sprinkled in doorways or window frames to prevent spiders from entering your home.
