Day 268 – Natural Spider Repellant


I hate spiders. They are disgusting things that creep around and invade my house. We have a problem with wolf spiders in our house. If you don’t know what wolf spiders are, they are pretty much the most disgusting spiders outside of the tarantula. Even though they are ginormous beasts, they can squeeze their way into the tiniest little crevices in order to invade my house.

I have managed to pinpoint how they are getting in. They come in under my sliding glass doors and pop out of the tracks. Since this is a high traffic area and in the little man’s playroom, I won’t use chemicals to get rid of them. I noticed something interesting after I cleaned my sliding glass door tracks the other week. I didn’t see any spiders come in for the next few days. I didn’t think too much of it until I saw this pin. Apparently, white vinegar keeps spiders away!

I wiped my sliding door track with more vinegar the other day to make sure it worked again. Success! We haven’t had any spiders come in for three days now. Apparently, strong smells keep spiders away. I would definitely suggest trying this if you know where your spiders are coming in. There is also a recipe for an outdoor spider repellant if you like to spray the perimeter of your house.

Cut Out and Keep

  1. I wish i knew where ours came in, I would try this too!

  2. We have problems with spiders in the cooler months. I hate them. I don’t even want to squish them. I start squealing like a little girl if I see one. I also saw something on Pinterest that added cayenne pepper, I believe, with white vinegar and put it in a spray bottle to spray around doors.

  3. Ugh, I had a recent problem with a wolf spider in my car that was hiding in my car’s frame and I could see it walking across the back dashboard when I drove at night. Talk about giving me the willies every time I drove the car! I am so wiping down my entire car with vinegar later.

  4. I am going to put vinegar in a spray bottle and do the perimeter inside and out. Wolf spiders are the scariest spiders I’ve ever seen.
