  1. Maintaining your home

Keep your home as neat and tidy as possible. It should be regularly dusted, vacuumed, mopped and kept organized. Sweep out the cobwebs if you see any.  Make sure to clean up after every meal and keep the dishes and sink clean. Make sure your home is dust and insect free.

The outside portion of the house should also be maintained. Clean up all the compost and leaf debris. Remove all the mulches and keep your grass trimmed. Remove all rocks and extra unwanted objects from the yard that will only allow more places for the spiders and other insects to hide. Use the hose pipe to wash out the webs in the yard and shed. Use insecticide spray to eradicate all sorts of insects from the yard.

  1. Use proper lighting

The light attracts bugs that lead to spiders sensing its way into your home to hunt on the bugs. Use dim lights or yellow lights. The sodium vapor lights are also great for outdoor lighting as it repels the bugs. If there will be no insect for hunting the spider will not creep around your home.

  1. Sticky trap for the spiders

Set glue traps for the spiders. Place many glue traps all over the house. Underneath the bed, sofa, porch, garage room and other places you can think off. The spiders will crawl around and get stuck on the glue trap.  Once it gets stuck you can get rid of it as you see fit.

Use a pump spray to apply insecticides to all areas outside and inside your house. Spray near the window frames, underneath furniture, appliances, garage rooms and all the other places you have the seen the spiders crawling around.
