Are ants and spiders a problem in your home?

Struggling with ants and spiders?

I’ve got friends and family who seem to struggle with ants and spiders every single year during the warmer months. I do not know how they deal with it each and every year. It’s got to be hard to have to fight this problem. But what is a family that deals with ants and spiders every year to do? Spiders are the worst. They make me cringe just to think about them.

Here’s a few things you can do to try to be ecofriendly while getting rid of ants and spiders.

1. Use baby powder and put it down where the ants walk. They’ll walk through it and it’ll take the water out of their poor little bodies. It also works on driving them back outside if you place a line of baby powder on the floor or wherever you think they are coming in at.

2. Soapy Water is a natural deterrent for spiders and ants. You can spray it on them and it will kill directly. You can spray it where you think they are coming in at and it will kill their scent, cause confusion and they won’t come back in.

3. Table Salt can be added to water and boiled on the stove to reduce it down. Then put it in a spray bottle and spray the area where they are coming in at. They will try to avoid the area because the salt will burn their legs, body and mouth.
