Natural Spider Prevention


  • Spray bottle
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Cotton balls, optional


  1. It's that time of year where spiders comes out and into your home!

  2. Simply fill a spray bottle with tap water and add 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil. Give it a smell to make sure the water smells minty, if not add a few more drops. Then you simply need to spray the peppermint water in the cracks and gaps where spiders can enter your home.

  3. Spiders do not like peppermint oil. The strong smell will send them scurrying in the other direction and away from your home.

  4. For an even more potent remedy add one or two drops of peppermint oil onto a cotton bud and place in the areas where spiders enter. It’s as simple as that!
