Many people have a fear of spiders. The last place you want to see them is inside your home, or bed. There are a few things you can do inside your home that will keep these creepy crawlers far away. In just a few minutes, your home can be spider free. With the warm weather, spiders are starting to wake up and move into your home!
Well, don’t go crazy, but make sure that you clean/dust/vacuum your home. When you have things lying around the home, like clothes and shoes, this gives spiders more places to hide. With no places to hide and frequent vacuuming of corners and carpets, spiders won’t have a place to call home.
Just like cleaning frequently, you should try to cut down on the amount of clutter that you have in your home. If you try to throw all your stuff into the closet, garage or attic, it will attract spiders. Grab a spacious storage unit to keep your home spider and clutter-free.
Rumor is that chestnuts repel these insects. For some reason, they really do not like the smell of them. Place chestnuts in the corners of rooms, or in places where spiders frequently hangout. Make sure to be careful if you have small children or pets, they could choke on the nuts.
