The peak mating season for spiders occurs in the fall. If they do, they’ll start looking for a safe, warm place to spend the winter with their young. That’s bad news since it means they can move in with you if they make it into your garage, cellar, or any other part of your house.
So, what’s the solution here? Is it possible to eradicate spiders from the home using only natural means? In fact, you can keep your house secure from a fall spider invasion by using a combination of the methods below that both prevent and deter spiders from coming inside.
With that in mind, here are some of the greatest methods and tricks for keeping spiders out of your living area!
1. Closing and sealing all openings
Sealing off the entrances spiders favor is the first line of defense against an infestation. This includes caulking gaps around windows and doors and checking for holes in screens.
Spiders, like stink bugs, flies, and other tiny insects, often enter homes through unprotected openings. Caulking and sealing around windows and doors, as well as any trim, should be maintained regularly. Exclusion traps are effective, as is caulking and sealing any pipes or foundation cracks through which spiders can enter your home.
Keep all window screens in place and securely fastened before opening windows. Screen tape is an effective solution for repairing screens with even the tiniest of holes. Compared to replacing full displays, they are more economical and take less time.
