How To Use Cinnamon Oil To Get A Handle On Wolf Spiders
Cinnamon oil, a fragrant essential oil known for its enticing aroma, can also double as an effective and eco-friendly wolf spider repellent.
Wolf spiders are known for their distinct aversion to strong scents, particularly the active compound cinnamaldehyde, found in high concentrations within cinnamon oil.
To craft a repellent spray, mix cinnamon essential oil with water in a spray bottle. Next, spritz this mixture around potential entry points that wolf spiders may use.
It is important to note that cinnamon essential oil can be toxic to dogs and cats, so this hack may not be ideal for you if you have pets in the house.
