People are afraid of spiders. In India spiders are another common household pest. Those crawling multi legs makes it more scary! Remove cobwebs from the house. Check in the corners, under house furniture and store rooms for cobwebs. If you have huts outside house for cows and other pets keep huts clean. Spiders thrive in dark, cluttered places, so keep stacks of debris, woodpiles and thick plant growth away from the sides of the house. The fewer places spiders can easily inhabit, the more effectively they can be repelled. Spider bites can cause rashes and allergy and severe pain.

Try these natural methods to get rid of spiders:

Peppermint oil: Place a few drops of peppermint essential oil into a spray bottle. Add a squirt of liquid detergent and fill the bottle with water. Spray the mixture on cobwebs, around doors and windows, around the lawn and garden and on any surfaces where spiders lurk.

Coconut oil and vinegar mixture: The combination of coconut oil and white vinegar also makes an effective spray for repelling spiders.

Citrus essential oils: Spiders does not like the taste of citrus which includes lemon, lime, tangerine, and wild orange. Although it will not kill them, it will make them avoid places where they can “taste” them.
