None of us wants to have spiders crawling around our home, so we all search a solution to repel them easily and quickly.
Yet, it is not necessary to buy those commercial repellents which are full of chemicals, as there are effective natural remedies which can help you get rid of those insects and keep them at bay.
Apparently, spiders hate strong smells, so they cannot stand scents like peppermint, and the ones below. Try them out and you will no longer have spiders around your home!
Spiders hate citrus, so you can get rid of them by rubbing citrus peel, orange or lemon, on areas where they appear. Moreover, you can also use lemon scented furniture polish to eliminate them quickly.
Spiders detest tobacco as well, so it is a god idea to sprinkle small bits of it on areas where they appear, or soak tobacco in water and spray the mixture throughout the house.
Insects do not like cedar, so its use will prevent insect infestations. Also, use cedar blocks inside closets and drawers and you will be thrilled by the results.
Peppermint oil is also in the group of things spiders hate. Therefore, mix it with water in a spray bottle and spray all around the house. This will prevent the appearance of spiders and will leave your house smelling great.
Chestnuts are effective in the fight against spiders as well. You should distribute them on the windowsills and keep insects at bay.
