It's that time of year when Myrtle Beach starts to get a little bit cooler and all of our little eight legged friends outside will be looking for a place to stay warm and hide. I don't know about you but my house is not welcoming them with open arms. You can use poisons and chemicals that will no doubt take care of them and their entire insect family but it could also be harmful to your family or your pets! Here are some natural ways to deter pests, specifically spiders, and keep them far away from your house. As an added bonus, by planting these around your home you have some beautiful landscaping and herbs to use in your next recipe!
These are all excellent natural deterrents that also serve a purpose. if you want to keep these creepy crawlies out of your garage or away from those corners on your ceiling, use a powder as spiders can climb right over your sprayed perimeter. Talc powder just gently wiped along the edges and corner of the ceiling will make it impossible for them get a good hold on the way. Also, food grade Diatomaceous Earth is made from crushed seashells (basically) and acts like little razor blades to an insect with an exoskeleton, killing any that cross it's path. it is completely safe to humans however and a great deterrent for those spiders that climb into the cracks in your garage and even those pesky palmetto bugs that find their way in sometimes.
