What’s the best natural spider repellent? That’s a question a lot of people ask, and the answer can vary depending on the type of spider you have and what kind of environment you live in. Many people like to use either black pepper or Cayenne pepper spray, but there are more powerful and long lasting natural alternatives that work just as well. Let’s take a look at some of the options available to protect yourself from these nasty flying creatures.
Peppermint Tea Tree Spray – This natural alternative to spider repellent is an essential oil that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy. It’s a wonderful anti-bacterial scent that can be sprayed on plants and other areas. The best way to apply is to spray directly on the affected areas.
Lavender Tea Tree Oil – This popular oil is one of the best natural repellents available. You can either make your own by infusing fresh lavender flowers into a carrier oil, or purchase pure tea tree oil in an inexpensive bottle. Apply the oil to the area being protected using a spray bottle or spread it with a towel. For areas with larger populations of Brazilian black triceps, eucalyptus oil works well. Just make sure to test the solution first.
Nature Shield Repellents – This is a line of natural products that combine the above ingredients into a solid product. They claim a “spider repellent mixed with nature.” The key ingredient is Diatomaceous Earth. They say this substance is a combination of clay and organic materials that when applied to the surface it helps block the emission of airborne pests like spiders. I found that their product had moderate effectiveness, but they are not offering a guarantee.
Spider Vaginitis Creams – Did you know that your basic dish soap can be an effective spider repellent? Yes, that’s true. Apply a thin coat of dish soap to areas where you often find them, and then allow it to dry before proceeding. To maximize the anti-venom effect, follow up with essential oils like peppermint oil.
Revenge Spider Killer Spray – This is one of the best spider repellents on the market. How do I get rid of spiders? Simply spray around doors and windows, and also anywhere there are cracks or crevices. It is recommended that this product be used in pairs. Apply on the perimeter of your property, and then follow up with a counter sheet and garden hose to eliminate the need to scrub every corner of the house.
What is the best spider repellent pouches? While the best spider repellent pouches may not be sold at your local hardware store, they are more than worth the money spent to buy one. These contain an ingredient called IRIS, which is a patented ingredient containing small amounts of a synthetic chemical (rubbing salts) that has been proven to effectively repel mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects.
How do I get rid of these insects? Use a heavy duty insecticide such as aerosol sprays, which will kill mosquitoes and their eggs. For heavily infested areas, a heavy duty insecticide sprayer is needed, and a great way to get rid of those pesky bugs is with a plug-in insecticide system. With a plug-in system, you will need a rotating cast of mosquitoes repellent (cast can be reused), a heavy duty pump, and the IRIS spider repellent. While the plug-in system takes time to apply, it provides highly effective coverage in an area up to 12 square feet, so it may take longer to repel the insects completely, but is well worth it in the end.
