Banish Spiders From Your Home With Vicks VapoRub
If you're noticing a rise in spider activities around your home, you can use Vicks VapoRub, a medicine cabinet staple, to banish those pesky spiders from the house.
Since spiders smell and taste through their legs, they become extra sensitive and usually run away from the potent scent of Vicks VapoRub, which has eucalyptus and menthol.
To use Vicks VapoRub as a spider deterrent, rub it in problematic areas and any entry points from where the spiders might be coming in, such as window frames, doors, and vents.
You can also add a few smears on the spots you don't want the spiders to visit, like the bedframe or coffee table. Do this daily for the best results, as the smell will disappear.
