Keep Spiders Out Of Your Nashville Home

While spiders are everywhere, this doesn’t mean they should be sharing space with you in your home. That said, they do act as natural pest control for many households because they get rid of other pests you also don’t want to share space with. It’s impossible to completely rid your home of Nashville spiders, especially in summer, but there are things you can do to keep them away.

You don’t have to use harsh or expensive chemicals. Instead, try these natural, effective, safe methods of spider control. If that doesn’t work, call a spider exterminator in Nashville to get the job done.

1. Citrus

Got some citrus fruits lying around? Put some in a bowl and place it on your kitchen counter. Along sills and doorways, rub leftover citrus peels. You can even soak the orange peels in vinegar and put it in a spray bottle.

2. Mint

A natural pest repellent, mint can keep those spiders away. Add mint and peppermint essential oil as well as some water in a spray bottle. Or put dried mint leaves in mesh baggies (or mint tea bags) and leave in your cupboards.

3. Cedar and Chestnuts

Around the house, sprinkle cedar chips to deter spiders, or add horse chestnuts along baseboards and windowsills.

4. White Vinegar

Combine vinegar and water in a spray bottle for your very own organic pest control solution. Vinegar is not harmful to humans or pets, but spiders hate it due to the sour odor and taste of the acetic acid. Feel free to spray around your home, especially in entrance ways and in your kitchen. Got a bathroom to clean? Use the same solution to clean your toilets and sinks!

5. Diatomaceous Earth

DE contains fossilized remains of algae (AKA diatoms) with an outer shell made of silica. This white powder is affordable to buy, it’s non-toxic, and it’s an effective spider repellent. The silica dehydrates pests and absorbs their moisture.

Mix some water and one tablespoon of DE and add to a spray bottle. Spray around your home’s exterior and your garden’s perimeter, but be careful not to inhale the DE dust. Only buy food-grade diatomaceous earth.

6. Remove Dust

Spiders like to make their homes in dusty, out-of-the-way spots. Clean your home often and get rid of cobwebs as you see them, which removes their home and forces them to move on. Regularly dust and vacuum each room, including closets and basements.

7. Maintain the Landscape

Regularly remove leaves and grass clippings, and keep wood piles away from the foundation of your home. Prune your bushes and shrubs, and pull weeds as needed. Spiders love to hide in these areas.
