Spiders are one of the most incredible creatures on earth and we can certainly appreciate them for keeping away pests like flies or mosquitoes, but that doesn’t mean you want them to set up their home in your closet or behind your bathroom door. Here are some proactive tips to keep spiders away from your property.
Vacuum regularly, high and low — particularly sheltered spots such as beneath worktops, backs of cupboards or under/behind large furniture.
Remove noticeable webs — on a regular basis.
Fill in gaps — in walls, around pipework and under doors to deter entry.
Remove sheltering sites — like firewood piles, garden bags, compost piles and general clutter from near your property.
Deter all insects — use lighting in a way that is less attractive to the insects (flies) that spiders feed on.
TIPS: Wear rubber gloves when moving boxes and containers located in dark areas, like your store room or basement as spiders may have infiltrated into these areas already. A pair of thick gloves may help to minimise your risk of being bitten.
