Don’t give them places to hide
Spiders love being able to scuttle into cardboard boxes or bags that are lying around your home. Try to make life a little more difficult for them by cutting down on the places that they have to hide. Plastic tubs are better as it is harder for them to climb into these, and also make sure that you give the room a good clean out every few weeks to remove any would be squatters.

Keep your home citrus fresh
As well as not liking mint, spiders are also known to not be fans of citrus scents too. Try rubbing the peel of a lemon or lime along your window sills, or use a lemon scented cleaner in your home. You could also try burning citronella candles too.

Sprays are easy to use and a great way to stop spiders from entering your home, which is why we have included a couple different options in this list. Another mint based spray, this is a natural and effective way to stop spiders.
It might be a bit of an old wives tale, but there are a number of people out there who swear by the fact that conkers can stop spiders coming into a home. As we are coming into conker season, which seems to coincide with spider season, perhaps it may be a good idea to try and see if conkers are a good way to stop spiders from coming into your home.
So, there you have it. Just a few ways that you can try and stop a spider infestation from happening in your home. If none of these seem to work and you find yourself spider ridden again, then perhaps it is a good idea to invest in a good quality spider catcher, which will give you a humane way to catch spiders.
