If you have been tired of clearing all the cobwebs from your home, we feel you! One week of rest to clean, and they are back. As much as it is terrifying, it is a relief to know that spiders do not pose harm to humans unless they are the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider in the United States of America.
Unfortunately, even after keeping the safety aspects in mind, spiders contribute to severe unhygienic activities like cobwebs and their food- the dead pests that get caught around the house. It is significant to practice spider control at regular intervals to maintain health and cleanliness. Here are some ways:
- Small Spider Entrance: Spiders sneak into your house to make it their home from small spaces of windows and wall cracks. Seal them up to avoid them entering your abode.
- Lights: Bright evening lights attract pests & bees, which are food to the spiders. They enter homes in search of food. Set the lights off timely or set up red lights during late hours to prevent the situation.
- Clutter: Declutter your surroundings. Clear our any places that may attract the settling down of spiders. Prevent layering of rugs (or cleaning them exceptionally well each time) or furniture and dust off the hangings.
- Leftover food: A big no-no! Leftover food is an enormous feast for all pests & spiders to hog onto. Trash the food or distribute it amongst the needy.
- Indoor Plants: Spiders are shy creatures, and having plants to cover them up or pot stones to hide underneath serve as the best areas. Grow the plants outdoors in your backyards.
- Dust regularly: Regular dusting and once in a while deep cleaning of the house de-structures the cobwebs and demotivates them to build their webs again. It also undoes their mapping of target areas. Bookshelves, kitchen overheads, storerooms, garage, and the stairs are where it all begins.
- Eucalyptus oil: In a small spray bottle, add some drops of eucalyptus oil, and see the spiders run away from your home.
- Pest control: The best way to avoid the root of the problem (the pests) is to get pest control done in regular gaps. Having professionals takeover creates a lasting impact on cleanliness—their spray’s equipment reaches where our hands never could.
Although spiders peacefully coexist with humans, it is essential not to let them get overboard into your homes. Hiring professional spider control will help you resume quickly into your regular schedules.
