Being a mom, you can expect to be called to the kids room for the most trivial and not-so-trivial issues. Regardless of how long you have had the title of a parent, you can never prepare yourself for the different sights that could be waiting for you. You can either enter to a scene of your kids caught up in a wrestling match or you can be invited to a flabbergasting sight of all your kids huddled together in one corner because the other one is occupied by a spider at the moment.
Now, you can either pick up the spider with your bare hands, or you can try every possible trick to get rid of it. Since the first option is unlikely (Ew!), these may help you out with the other one.
Essential oils are good for many things, and keeping household spiders at bay is one of them. Since spiders are repelled by strong smells, just fill your spray bottle with a tea-tree, lavender, rose or peppermint essential oil and water and squirt it all around the house.
Take an orange or lemon peel and rub it on the surfaces where you often see spiders. It will be enough to keep the spiders at bay for days.
Coconut Oil and Water
This one is a quick solution. Just pour one part coconut oil and two parts water in a spray can and send the liquid jetting on the spider’s abode.
If you and your family are fine with the smell of garlic, then you can use it combined with water to spray around the house and prevent the unwelcome visitors from entering your house.
If you are not a fan of any of the above-smelling repellents, then you can use tobacco for spider eradication. Mix water and Tobacco and spray it in all the spider-infested corners of the house.
Spiders can usually be repelled by using any strong smelling substance. However, since you are living in the same vicinity, the above mentioned tips and tricks are some of the most pleasant options for you and safest for the family!
