How to Get Rid of Spiders

Spiders are most likely to enter your home in the autumn in search of a warm place to spend the winter.

The best advice, in general, is to leave them alone. This can be difficult for the millions of people who have a real fear of spiders.

Majority of spider infestations are more of an annoyance – particularly their webs. However, on occasions, more serious situations can occur especially when it involves some of the dangerous spiders we have here in South Africa.

Tips on how to get rid of Spiders

Although Rentokil does not offer spider control services as part of our pest control service packages, you might find the below tips on how to get rid of spiders useful.

  • Vacuum regularly, high and low - particularly sheltered spots such as beneath worktops, backs of cupboards or under/behind large furniture.

  • Remove noticeable webs - on a regular basis.

  • Fill in gaps - in walls, around pipework and under doors to deter entry.

  • Remove sheltering sites - like firewood piles, garden bags, compost piles and general clutter from near your property.

  • Deter all insects - use lighting in a way that is less attractive to the insects (flies) that spiders feed on.
