A super efficient method to keep these insect away is peppermint. For human beings, it has a nice scent, but it is not the same for the eight-legged animals. The intense scent of this plant is particularly nasty for spiders, which therefore stay away.

The best all-year-long solution is to place in each room of your house a small jar with water an 10 drops of peppermint essential oil. Instead, in spring and summer you can keep the plant at home.

Another thing spiders hate is eucalyptus. How to use it? For a quick remedy, you can use its essential oils. Instead, if you have a garden, you can plant a eucalyptus tree.

Other natural remedies against spiders

Spiders cannot stand orange and lemon peels, which instead leave a nice scent in our houses. Rub the peels on your windowsills, or make a potpourri with these fruits. You can also try with white vinegar. Mix it with water and pour it in a spray container. Spray this solution in the corner of your house where you have seen spiders.
