Does Vacuuming Kill Bugs & Spiders?

Vacuum cleaners are not only excellent for ridding your carpet, hardwood floors, and upholstery of dirt and debris, but they can kill spiders, too. The soft exoskeleton most spiders possess is too fragile to withstand the powerful suction. And even if spiders survive the traumatic event, they usually die of suffocation from the dirt density and dust they’re submerged in. Using a vacuum with disposable bags is much better than the canister-style option because insects can crawl out through the openings. Bags allow you to throw out both dead and possibly living bugs without the fear that they might escape. Make sure your bags are sealed tightly and have no holes or tears.

Will Bleaching The Floors Deter Spiders?

We all know that bleach is superb at brightening your whites and removing stubborn stains when washing your clothes. But how is it at ridding your home of spiders? It turns out that bleach can do double duty because it does kill spiders if used correctly. You start by mixing one part bleach with three parts water in a spray bottle. The mixture can be used directly on spiders when you see them and also in areas where they likely enter your home. However, bleach can be hazardous, so use it with caution. And always make a qualified pest control company your first line of defense to completely rid your home of spiders.

Five Home Spider Control Tips For Arachnophobes

If you're terrified of spiders, you’re not alone. Arachnophobia ranks high on the list of fears that plague many people. When you have common house spiders zig-zagging around your living space or sitting motionless on your wall, your anxiety level can go through the roof. But there are simple steps arachnophobes can take to make their home a no-spider zone, which are:

  • Clean your home regularly because spiders are drawn to dusty areas to lay their eggs.
  • Keep your outside lights turned off on the front and back porches and the driveway and garage.
  • Use cedar as a repellent by placing it in areas like your hangers, drawers, closet chests, hangers, and mulch.
  • Mix water and alcohol with eucalyptus and lavender oils to make a spray around windows, and other areas spiders invade.
  • Seal any holes, gaps, cracks, or crevices using exclusionary substances, like caulk or foam.

These tips can significantly reduce your chances of running into spiders when you least expect them. But it’s always best to start with a clean slate by ridding your home of existing spiders. Bay Pest Solution, Inc can conduct a comprehensive inspection and treat your home effectively.
