Keep Spiders Out Of Your Home – Peppermint


To deter spiders from staying or coming inside your house:

Add 20 or 30 drops of peppermint oil to an 8 ounce spray bottle first then fill the spray bottle with water (leave an inch of head space from the top)
Shake for at least 30 seconds before every session you use the spray bottle.

Spray around : The inside of window sills ( all the way around ) http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/view-image.php?image=26388&picture=hippo-on-the-window

Around door frames ( all the way around )

Under the kitchen and bathroom sinks
In the 4 corners in a room on the ceiling

You can also place a few drops of the peppermint oil on cotton balls and place in closets, kitchen cabinets, behind couches…. any out of the way place to keep spiders from returning.


Repeat the process once a week

You can plant peppermint near doors and windows to keep spiders away from them.
