Garlic Is The Secret Ingredient You Need To Ward Off House Spiders
Arachnids have a heightened sense of smell to home in on what's edible, and garlic's fragrance interferes with their ability to pick up these scents.
As a result, spiders are less likely to venture into areas where garlic’s scent is present, such as corners and along baseboards, helping to keep them out of your home.
Simply smash a couple of garlic cloves, toss them into a spray bottle filled with water, and let it chill for a day. Then, spray the mixture in the areas where you’ve seen spiders.
Alternatively, you can place freshly chopped garlic inside a tied-off coffee filter and strategically set them in spider-laden areas.
