As the summer season comes to a close, you may find spiders seeking refuge in your home. These bugs are not only unsightly but also a nuisance to your home. Spiders typically enter your home for two reasons, food and shelter. If you deprive them of these things, they are less likely to seek shelter in your home.
4 Tips to Keep Spiders Out
Spiders are perhaps one of the most dreaded household pests, but keeping them out doesn't have to be a daunting task. A few simple steps can help to keep these creepy crawlies at bay.
Tips to keep spiders out include:
- Fix cracks and holes: Spiders can enter your home through small cracks. Check around your home for any cracks near doors or windows and repair them as soon as you can.
- Vacuum: By vacuuming routinely, you’ll clean up webs, egg sacs, and even spiders themselves.
- Keep your home clean: Spiders stay in cluttered environments so by keeping your home clean with sweeping, dusting, and overall tidying up, you’re eliminating space for them to live in. In addition, you’re cleaning up other smaller pests for them to feed on.
- Set up sticky traps: Sticky traps can be helpful to attract spiders already in your home and trap them.
