Spiders! Aacckk! How to rid your house of spiders

I hate spiders! But I know they are great for keeping other insects under control, so I don’t really want to kill them either. But how do you live with the scary creatures?!?

Did you know that spiders hate peppermint? I didn’t. I do know that I hate spiders!!!

Simple trick – put a couple of drops of pure peppermint oil on a cotton ball and put it wherever you suspect spiders are entering your house – they will run the other direction!

On the other hand, if you don’t know where they are coming in from, you can put 15 drops into water in a spray bottle and spray around window openings, door openings, baseboards, around the basement, in sinks, tubs, etc.

Spiders will not want to go anywhere near the smell of peppermint. Try it! You can keep your house free of the invaders, and keep the insect population under control at the same time!
