It’s starting to warm up now, time to enjoy the beautiful outdoors again! with picnics, BBQ’s and friends over for summer afternoons.
If you have started noticing an increase in spiders 🕷 around your home or workplace it’s due to the fact that spiders reproduce during spring which by summer will have matured.
Pull out the BBQs that have been stashed away or your outdoor entertaining furniture (that haven’t done much entertaining in the winter months) … and you may find a few of our 8 legged friends!
Spiders 🕷 feed on common household pests, so as you start eating outside and the ants enjoy the self serve buffet…so do the spiders.
However, if you are like most people that would prefer not to share your home with our eight-legged friends, here are some helpful tips to keep your home Spider Free this coming Summer!!
Keep your storage items, plants, outdoor furniture etc from stacking up against your home and avoid stock piling against the house exterior and yard.
- Don’t use cardboard storage boxes which may attract silverfish, cockroaches and other pests which may then attract the spiders to investigate further.
- Keep all firewood tidy and stacked and away from your house.
- Check the exterior of your home by brooming & brushing any noticeable cobwebs down.
- Diffuse essential oils in your home quite regular, Spiders don’t like strong scents such as peppermint which is quite pleasant for us. Other oils which are a winner are tea tree lavender, eucalyptus & lemon.
While any of the above will help prevent 🕷 in or around your home the absolute best option is to call Evolution Group Carpet Cleaning And Pest Control to carry out your this service including internal & external plus roof void of your home. This creates a protective barrier, not just against spiders but other household pests which attract spiders in the first place. By having a professional spray, spiders won’t linger, breed or spend the Summer at your place!
