How to Get Rid of Spiders from Your Home Safely and Permanently

Spiders can be a nuisance in and around your home.  While spiders may not do as much damage to your property as some pests do, they can certainly be annoying and even dangerous.  Certain spiders are venomous, and their bites can cause severe reactions.  These reactions are usually most severe in children or the elderly, or people with compromised immune systems.  It is no wonder many people are looking for a way to keep spiders away from their homes.

There are chemicals and pesticides that can kill spiders, but these are often dangerous for your family and pets; and not environmentally-friendly.  The best way to keep spiders from making their home in YOUR home, is to keep a clean house and use safe, natural spider repellents.

How to Get Rid of Spiders

Spiders are often unwelcome guests in our homes.  Running into an unexpected spider in your house can be disturbing, and in rare cases can even be dangerous.

While it is possible to try to repel spiders using pesticides and chemicals, this is usually not very effective, because the spiders would actually have to walk through the chemical that has been sprayed in your house to suffer any ill effects.  Not only is this inefficient, it also is a safety risk to your family and pets, as pesticides can be harmful to us as well.  The best choice is to use a natural, environmentally safe way to get rid of spiders and prevent additional pest problems.

Traps are commonly used for pest control, but they are only effective if you are lucky enough to place them in areas where spiders are travelling.  Because traps only catch the errant spider that crosses its path rather than addressing the root of the problem, traps are not usually the most effective method of pest control.
