Spiders have always been the subject of fear among many people. These hairy, eight legged critters send chills down your spine whenever they crawl towards you. If your house is being tormented by spider infestations, serious actions have to be made and professional help has to be sought. However, there are some things you can do on your own to alleviate your spider problems.
Spiders are tough creatures to deal with. They are difficult to exterminate when you don’t have the right knowledge. Hence, it is best to do some preventive measures to avoid stressing yourself with extermination. It is possible to stop the spiders from reaching your home. A good place to start is on your lawn. Trim your lawn frequently. Spiders thrive on thick vegetation and tall grasses. Moreover, you can use some chemical agents to drive them away. There are a good number of pesticides that are specifically made for killing spiders. Placing them on your lawn helps in driving away spiders before they could reach your home.
However, these pesticides can be expensive. If you are looking for a cheaper way to stop these critters, there are several home-made pesticides that you can try. A lot of people use a mixture of boiled tobacco and lemon dish soap as a spray to drive away the spiders. When this method proves effective for you, follow up this method with further prevention. Always make sure that your area is frequently cleaned. Spiders often reside in places not commonly used since they feel secure in this area. Clean away the webs and sacs that you see. Cleanliness is the key to prevent spider infestation. Furthermore, inspect your house for any holes, cracks and crevices. Cover them with mesh to prevent spiders from entering through these openings.
