I know this spider killer works. While I am pretty successful at keeping spiders out of my house, they do manage to get in sometimes when the weather changes. Around our part of the country, spiders tend to appear in the house when a cold front or dramatic weather change is on its way.
During a recent rainy season, I pulled this out when a spider did actually get into my house. When the weather changed, a rather large and unusual looking spider went crawling across the floor. I tried my minty spray, but this did not do anything except chase him in the wrong direction. I hate to squish bugs (it makes me squeamish), so I ran and found my organic garden spray. It killed him dead! Mission accomplished.
Want to know what I used? You need this natural spider killer! It does work. And…it is all natural. There are no nasty pesticides or toxins in this spray.
All Natural Spider Killer
What you need:
1 cup of vinegar
3 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed or chopped
1 large red chili pod, or 1 tablespoon of crushed dried chili peppers
1/2 cup of water
How to make it:
Add the garlic and chili pepper to the 1 cup of vinegar in a spray bottle. Add the water. Stir around and then allow it to sit 2 or 3 days. Label your bottle and place it in a location for quick spraying.
How to use it:
When you spot a rogue spider crawling in your home, grab your spray bottle and spray the spider directly. I spray the spider until it stops trying to run from me. Usually that means the spray took effect, but watch a minute and if it crawls again, spray again. Otherwise, you can expect the spider to shrivel up and die.
It is that easy peasy!
Btw, if you know what kind of spider this is, please share! Curious minds want to know…
