The beginning of fall season has its perks. There are new menus in our favorite cafes, leaves change color, evening walks in comfortable weather are possible, and we can enjoy a new show-binge on Netflix. The popular Halloween decorations include pumpkins, ghosts and spiders. What most people don't realize is that these fake spiders and their webs are not the only ones "creeping around" their homes. The problem lies within, really. Female spiders tend to reside indoors and at this time of the year, male spiders intrude homes in search of a mate. These so called "sex-starved spiders" can be big enough to set your burglar alarm off. Needless to say, not only can this be very irritating but they can also set off false alarms. The following five points are useful measures to repel spiders from your home.
- Turning off the lights.
- Do you smell citrus?
- Fill in the Gaps.
- Clearing spider webs.
- Consider Cedar-wood furniture.
