Little crawling creatures in our homes can be annoying. While some of these will be found in specific places of the house which you expect, there are some that are present just about everywhere and will surprise you with their presence every once in a while.
Small spiders are one of them and you can never be sure as to when one will jump up on you. They can be frustrating but there are ways of getting rid of them. It is not hard and only takes a few basic changes to get you a spider free home.
The first thing to do is to make sure that the house is clean in general. All insects and spiders will be attracted if the sanitation in the house is not up to a proper standard. By regularly cleaning and vacuuming the house, you will have a lot less of these.
Remove Food Sources
Make sure that bugs such as cockroaches and common house flies are not present in your home. These come from broken shield doors generally. Fix these shield doors and any other entry points which can be used by these insects. The spiders prey on them and if the food sources for the spiders are no longer available in the house, they too will not be living there anymore.
Remove Excess Wood
There is often some extra wood, debris and trash sitting around the foundation of the house and it houses all kinds of bugs quite well. Make sure that you get rid of it. Doing so will deprive spider amongst other insects some much needed living space.
Clean the House with Purpose
Hose down your house to get rid of insect’s eggs and webs of spiders. Also, clean your drawers and closets to make sure that there are no insects in those areas as well. Doing this will help you get rid of the next generation of the insects and spiders and your house will be free of them. Also, make sure that you remove any webs that can be seen on walls or on the ceiling. Make sure that you remove these while they have just been started.
