Do you have creepy-crawlies or insects in your home? Want a clean, natural way to get rid of them without the use of toxic chemicals?
Spiders are not only creepy, but many of them are venomous and although rare, some can even kill people. If you have ever had a spider bite the symptoms can be quite uncomfortable:
- severe pain
- muscle pain
For instance, the brown recluse spider is one of the most poisonous house spiders in the United States. A bite from one of these little guys and it may even cause lasting tissue damage.
Fear not, I have great news…
It turns out that spiders can’t handle the smell of peppermint. It is sometimes thought of as an old wives tale, but is it true, ]peppermint oil can really repel spiders!
This essential oil is the cheapest way of getting rid of spiders fast because spiders can’t tolerate it.. After smelling the oil, the spiders will run away in opposite direction after detecting the presence of it.
