Non-Toxic Options

Spiders are repelled by the smell of citrus, making it a natural form of defense against spiders in the home. You can use products like Orange Guard to repel spiders and kill them on the spot.

Another non-toxic way of controlling spiders is to use a vacuum. With detachable nozzles, webs and larvae are safely eliminated from the home. There are some products specifically designed for spider control, but these are unnecessary, as standard home vacuums typically work well enough.
