Many types of spiders can somehow be beneficial for our environment as they are the ones responsible for eating some of the insects that can actually be harmful to both us and our crops or plants. But then again, it doesn’t mean that we are very much willing to welcome spiders in to our homes. And now you’re probably wondering how you can get rid of the spiders that are outside your home and are attempting to invade your place. We’ve created a list of ways you can do for this.

Shed light to those hideout spots

Spiders are prone to dwelling in places that keep them from being seen and exposed to much light and air. But since a lot of spiders are more helpful than they can be harmful, it means you won’t be having to kill them. But for harmful spiders on the other hand, both species of widow and recluse type of spiders usually tend to go on those secluded areas in order to be unseen. They can also be found on plants, corners and even attics of houses. And so by removing or shall we say de-cluttering, you are providing less and less space for spiders to hide in your home. Just to be safe from bites and other skin irritations, see to it that you wear gloves and long sleeves when moving out stuff that can be infested with spiders. Moreover, seek immediate medical attention if you’ve been bitten by these creatures.

Eliminate the cobwebs

Garden spiders even though not harmful to humans and are welcomed by some people that we call horticulturalists. Moreover, these little creatures can actually grow to more than two inches long which gives them to ability to cover up porches and windows with the large webs that they create for themselves. Cobwebs are usually a zigzagged line with a circle like shape as a whole. Their webs are what they use to capture food and well to ultimately sleep in. So if you break their webs, they’ll be having to hunt for another spot again to crate one.

Clean up your landscape

Keeping up a clean environment can be as important as to how you want to create a safer environment for you and your loved ones. Since spiders are a type of pests that feed on almost anything, then chances are they are also attracted with different types of chaos and dirty. By keeping your home surroundings clean and free from any type of debris can keep spiders away from your home. Clearing your lawn by brushing and sweeping fallen leaves and other trash will help create a more clean environment in which the spiders would not really enjoy being in.
