Spiders are generally unwelcome guests, often considered total intruders. How can you get rid of spiders? It turns out there is a magical recipe that can help you deal with them.

Are spiders a major source of anxiety for you? It's time to change that. Prepare this mixture of three ingredients as soon as possible.

Pour water and vinegar (in equal proportions) into a spray bottle. Fill the rest with lemon juice or a few drops of citrus essential oil. Mix the solution thoroughly, then spray it on window and balcony frames.

To get tangible results, the spider-deterrent treatment should be repeated every three days.

How to deal with spiders: important rules

The mentioned mixture is not the only trick for dealing with spiders. The following rules should also be noted:

  • Regularly clean your home, especially in corners and places where food scraps or dust can accumulate.
  • Check if windows, doors, and other openings are well-sealed. Spiders often enter through cracks and crevices.
  • Install screens on windows and doors to prevent insects from entering.
  • Spiders enter the house in search of food, i.e., other insects. Ensure there are no flies, mosquitoes, or other small insects in the house that could attract spiders.
  • Some plants, such as mint, lavender, or eucalyptus, can repel spiders. Place them in pots near windows and doors.
  • If natural methods do not work, you can use store-bought chemical repellents for spiders. It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
