What kills spiders and keeps them away?

Killing spiders on a large scale isn't advisable as spiders prey on common household pests such as flies, cockroaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, fleas, moths, and ants. If you kill the spiders around your home, you risk increasing the numbers of other harmful pests and an infestation of these dangerous pests can prove much worse than having a few spiders in your home.

If you are seeing more spiders in your home than you normally do, you might have pest activity that attracts spiders into your home. Contact a trusted pest professional in your area such as Pestwise for a free pest inspection. Knowledgeable and certified technicians will identify any pest issues and devise an affordable plan to eliminate any current pest infestations and offer a plan to prevent pests from entering your home in the future.

Homeowners can keep spiders out of their homes in various ways. The most important way to get rid of spiders is to exclude pests from coming into your home. By caulking or sealing all cracks, tiny holes, and crevices in your home’s foundation, you can keep pests out of your home. Also, removing clutter will help deter spiders from taking up residency in your home. Dusting and vacuuming regularly helps make your home less attractive to spiders and other household pests. Some natural products that can fend off spiders from wanting to stay in your home include peppermint, vinegar, cedar blocks or chips, and citrus such as oranges, lemons, and limes.

Contacting a pest control professional to prevent pests from entering your home is probably the best way to keep spiders out of your home. Pestwise’ team will gladly inspect your West Florida home for spiders and other pests – we’re standing by to help.
