Most people hate creepy crawlies in particular, the dreaded spider!
They are silent creepers that pop up in the weirdest places. They must do that just to see us humans jump. Deter spiders and kill a couple along the way using DE. DE is cheaper, natural, organic and is safe to use around and in your home.
Check out how we recommend using DE against spiders:
Clean your home really well. Vacuum, sweep and mop floors making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.
Clean around and seal any cracks in your home where they could come through and dry up any damp patches that might build up in places like under your sink, as DE will not work when wet.
Start by lightly dusting the areas where you have noticed or seen the most spider activity. If you dust too heavy the cockroaches will not crawl over the DE which will not see any effect on the cockroaches. Dust anywhere else you might think they could be or walk through. Please be careful not to inhale the DE as like most minerals they can be potentially harmful once inhaled.
Be sure to dust the outside of your house as well, this will help keep them away. Lightly dust along the edges of your house, right against the foundation, along window sills and by entrances.
Let the DE sit where it is for as long as you need it to and to keep it there for prevention. If the DE gets washed away outside, simply reapply it. If you want to clean it check out our how to clean DE article on the best way to do that.
