How To Get Rid of Spiders This Spring in 4 Easy Steps
When the cold’s away, the pests will play. I’m sure that’s how the saying goes? Too true. Did you know Spring was named after the actions spiders make when hopping onto all the things you love to cover them with webs and eggs? (Citation needed)
Food production for spiders, more commonly referred to as “Nopes”, peaks in Spring with the arrival of flies, midges and insects, so you can expect to see more victim retaining, spider web laiden side mirrors and room corners right about now. Sound good? Yeah nah. Furthermore, White Tail spiders, like us, hate the wet and damp AND, unlike us, eat other spiders, so essentially, a spider infested house is a tempting invitation for these Australian natives. No worries though, we’ve got a few helpful tips to keep these unwanted scuttling land octopuses away.
– 1 –
Clean the outside of your house. Get rid of the webs, no, not the internets, the unwanted squatter quarters the spiders have lovingly whipped out on your home. If possible, take a hose to it, you can never be too sure!
Get the whole family involved to ensure all grime and dirt films are cleared.

Spring clean inside your house. That’s why they call it Spring cleaning. Because you clean your house. In Spring. When the spiders are house hunting. Clean all the things! Door frames, window frames, ceiling, corners, skirting boards, crevices and so on. Be thorough, you’re only going to do it once this year, make it count. Throttle their food source, it’s the vacuum cleaner’s food now, he’s earned it.
Which house will it be? Make sure it’s not yours.
