How Not to Get Rid of Spiders

Okay, repeat after me: "I will not attempt to kill spiders in my home by setting them on fire." A teenager in Reno, Nevada, recently learned this lesson the hard way after he set his backyard fence and a portion of his home on fire. No one was hurt and the teenager will not be charged in the accidental blaze but, man, I would hate to have to explain this one to my parents.

Spider Control

Then on the flip side of that, do you know how to get rid of spiders safely and environmentally friendly.

I don't like using pesticides, as I have dogs who like to smell and lick things.

Is their a natural way to rid my house of spiders? We literally see 4-5 large spiders every day or so.

That means they must have a food source. Eliminate the entry points for the other bugs and your spider problem will go away. It may be as simple as some weather stripping around your windows and doors.

This also happened to a man in the United Kingdom. I hope both of these people learn their lesson in pest control. LOL
