How Do I Get Rid of a Spider Problem in My Home?

If you are finding that spiders are welcoming you everytime you turn a corner in your home, your spider problem may actually be a spider infestation. It is common to have a spider or two in your home. They come inside when it is cold, rainy, or hot and dry. Spiders are hunters and despite their menacing appearance, they are not after you. They want to catch other bugs that may be in your home. Whether you have a couple spiders or a full infestation, you can get rid of the spiders in your home by preventing them from coming in the first place and also treating for the ones that have already gotten inside.

Prevention tips

Food and water are what spiders are after and if they find them both in your home, then you will have a new eight legged roommate. Water in your home in the form of a leaky faucet or high humidity, or even in the food they catch can hydrate spiders.

If your home creates a good environment for spider food, you will likely also attract spiders. Spiders eat insects found in your home. If you leave food out on the counter, have crumbs in and around the house, or have excessive trash, you can attract insects that spiders love to eat.

Some spider prevention tips are:

  • Vacuum and sweep often to remove crumbs
  • Clean and tidy your home to keep all pests out, including spiders
  • Fix water leaks and drips promptly
  • Remove trash immediately when it is full.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon in discreet places that spiders may be found to repel them

Treating your home for spiders

Treating your home for a spider problem on your own can be a little tricky. If you would like to treat spiders yourself, you can try:

  • Spider traps
  • Insecticides that kill on contact
  • Indoor insecticide barriers
  • Natural repellents like essential oils
  • You could kill spiders on contact with your shoe or a flyswatter.
