Spiders are More Afraid of You Than You Are of Them

Spiders are far more timid creatures than most people realize. They are far more likely to flee than to attack and will only bite humans in self-defense. So, next time you see a spider, remember that it is just as afraid of you as you are of it!

How to Get Rid of Spiders Without Harming Them

There are many ways to get rid of spiders without harming them. The most common method is to use a vacuum cleaner. Simply put the vacuum cleaner over the spider and suck it up. Another way is to use a cup or jar to trap the spider and then release it outside.

You can also use a piece of cardboard or paper to gently slide the spider onto it and then release it outside. If you are concerned about spiders getting into your home, you can seal up any cracks or crevices around your home where they may enter. 

Natural Methods to Keep Spiders Away

An effective natural method for keeping spiders away is to use essential oils. Citrus oils such as lemon and orange are particularly effective, as spiders hate the smell. Simply dilute a few drops of oil in water and spray around the perimeter of your home.
