Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Spiders

The best way to prevent spiders from getting into your house is some simple prevention. If bushes or trees touch your house then trim them way back so the spiders will have a harder time getting into your house. Caulk all the cracks and crevices around the outside of your home. Use a strong soapy solution and wash down the outside of your home well especially if you know it is soon going to be turning cold outside. Be sure to wash down all your porches and steps.

Spiders need insects to survive because insects are what they live on. All spiders are meat eaters so they must have insects to survive. The fewer insects that your home has the fewer spiders you should have.
