Even though we know that some spiders might be useful in the fight against insects, most of us would rather not have them in our homes.
To get through the winter, we try to keep spiders from coming into our home by using natural ways to scare them away. No harsh chemical sprays or exterminators, just natural ways to keep spiders out of our home.
1. Hedge Apples
Hedge Apples, according to ancient wives’ stories, are a natural way to keep spiders away from your home, however this has only been confirmed to work in high concentrations.
Every year, we employ this strategy and see a considerable reduction in the number of spiders in our home. We put them in areas where spiders tend to congregate, such as around entrances and in basements.
