Imagine opening your wardrobe door to grab the beautiful blouse you wished to wear to the party, hoping for the right chance and you see a tiny creature on your favorite blouse and you just SCREAM.
It’s the last thing you’d ever want to see – a spider lurking around the closet.
You run to find the insecticide, trip on the hanger lying on the floor, and get hurt. Party’s over or… Game over. Spider 1, You 0.
So, here are all the easiest ways you need to bring in use for keeping spiders or the hurt away.
1. Keep the Insects Away
Spiders are usually drawn to places where they find insects such as flies which are a primary source of food for them, so all you have to do is to make sure that there aren’t any flies in your room and more importantly- your wardrobe.
2. Peppermint Oil
Peppermint oil has a very strong odor that spiders and many more insects hate, so all you have to do is to soak some cotton balls and place them in the corners of your wardrobe which won’t let the spiders come in the wardrobe.
3. Natural Spider Repellent
Keep in mind that if you start seeing spiders in your wardrobe all you have to do is make your very own spider repellent at home and spray it in your wardrobe.
You may also use an ultrasonic spider repellent to keep spiders from away. Ultrasonic spider repellent can be bought at any nearby hardware store or online.
Other than that, lake st Louis spider exterminators work well as a repellent. All you need to make the repellent is 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup of pepper, a teaspoon of oil, and liquid soap and the wardrobe stays safe.
4. Use Citrus Peels
Just like mint, spiders hate the smell of anything citrus, so in order to keep the spiders away, all you have to do is take some orange peels or lemon peels and place them in a bowl in your wardrobe to keep the spiders out but make sure to replace the peels every 24 or 48 hours for the smell to stay potent enough for keeping the spiders away.
5. Baking Soda
Simply sprinkling some baking soda in your wardrobe will be enough for the spiders to be kept at bay and your wardrobe will be safe.
Only a spoonful scattered in your home’s corners, window sills, and doorways will bring out escaping spiders.
6. Smelly Things
Spiders don’t like citrus fruit smell like lemon, eucalyptus, and tea tree or peppermint oils. Consider rubbing the lemon peel around windows and doors, or mist over the other scents.
Vinegar is another fragrance they don’t like or maybe you too are not fond of these smells.
Clearing up other wardrobes in the house at this time will also be a good thing. Replace cardboard boxes with lids on glass plastic boxes for clothes.
Shake out never used, closed-toe shoes in case spiders make them a bed. Pick up and hang clothes from wardrobe floors to allow comprehensive floor vacuuming and removal of spider webs from wardrobes’ corners.
Cleaning and careful handling of rarely-used things in your wardrobes can go a long way to preventing spider problems. Treat other insects for extracting food supply from a spider.
