Tackling Spiders in the home and on CCTV

Spiders are thriving at the moment in the mild weather according to the BBC. But how can you get rid of them? They are currently looking for shelter and preparing to find a mate and find somewhere warm to stay for the winter months.

How to get rid of Spiders:

It’s peak spider season in early autumn and the best way to control them is to limit their food source according to Rentokil experts.

Here are some of the most common ways to get rid of the pesky critters!


You can spray an insecticide externally around windows and doors as well as inside walls and ceilings concentrating on the wall/floor and wall/ceiling junctions.

To prevent spiders nesting in CCTV cameras spray around the camera base which will then act as a barrier and repelling spiders from crossing and nesting in and around the camera.  This will also prevent false alarms from occurring which is one of the most common reasons for false alarms at this time of year.

Why SpiderEx?

Most insecticide sprays don’t last long and the difference with SpiderEx is that it is a lacquer and it stays on the surface area for a few months. It doesn’t leave a sticky or coloured film or mark, it’s a clear formula that is hard to see.

Other methods include:

Spider traps: catch and control light spider infestations.

Declutter your home: spiders will have fewer places to hide if you keep clutter to a minimum. Also, make sure you clean surfaces and vacuum often as bits of food may attract other insects, which could in turn attract spiders.

Keep windows closed: spiders tend to enter houses at night as they aim to look for a warm place once the sun sets to find food and mating opportunities. Closing your windows at night may help to keep them away.

Natural deterrents: spiders detest the smell of citrus fruits, so you could place slices of lemon or lime across your windowsills and doors as a natural bug repellent. You could also use other essential oils such as peppermint, cinnamon or tea tree oil to keep the spiders away. Alternatively, a water and vinegar spray will have a similar effect at deterring spiders.

Wash windows: cleaning windows with ammonia and water helps to prevent the creatures from getting inside.

Fill in gaps: filling in walls, around pipework and under doors can deter entry.
