Spider Mites

Sometimes spider mites become a matter of great headache while cultivating houseplant. Those arthropods become very dangerous for our plant. But, getting rid of spiders are very difficult. Because, they live inside our house and we should not use chemical insecticide into our house for the safety of our kids and pets.

But, no needs to be worried about it, there have another safe way of getting rid of spider mites. Today we will see how to do Nontoxic Spider Mite Treatment. Those tinny arthropods live underside of lives. It is very difficult to identify them at the very early stage of infestation, because of their tinny size and color less body. So, we should check the underside of lives at a scheduled time interval. Let’s see some natural and nontoxic technique of spider mite treatment.

  1. Neem Oil: Like many other insects Spider Mites can be controlled by using Neem Oil. Neem oil is a natural substance and 100% safe. Because it is not toxic. It is equally effective for treatment and prevention of spider mites. It is one of the cheapest pesticides used for controlling house insects.

  3. Temperature Controlling: This is another good technique of nontoxic spider mite treatment. Spiders like to live above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Indoor gardens may have temperature higher than 60 degree Fahrenheit. So, you have to ensure proper ventilation system for keeping temperature below that level.
  4. Use lady bugs: Lady Bugs are powerful predatory insect, who kill spider mites. By increasing the Predatory Insects you can easily control those annoying insects. This nontoxic spider mite treatment is not widely used, but you can try.

Dangerous Black Widow Spiders

Black widow spiders are the most dangerous species of spider. I have already discussed How to Identify Black Widow Spiders and How to Prevent Black Widow Spiders. Today I will show you how to hunt and kill those deadly devils. Let’s see how to do that!!!

Locate Their Nets and Smash Them  

I already tolled that Black Widow Spiders are nocturnal insects. So, will not be so much successful killing them at the daytime. We should identify as much number of nets as possible at daylight. Then at the evening we should destroy those nets along with those devils.

Where you will find them? They love to live in such places which are dark and naturally people do not access randomly. They love to live inside cracks, cavities, holes, corners of furniture, edge of windows and doors, inside unused shows, etc. Then make a note about the positions of those nets properly. Do not try to kill them with naked hand, use gloves for covering your hand and then use a long stick or something like that for killing those dangerous insects.

Choose Any Method for Killing Those Insects

You can choose any good spray or dust for killing those black widow spiders. After identification and marking those nets you can directly spray pesticide on those insects at night or sprinkle dust.
  • Dust: Dust are really very effective for controlling those devils. You should choose such places for using pesticide dusts which will not hart any other like kids and pets. You should use it inside holes, voids, cracks, etc.
  • Liquid Spray: Liquid spray is best for using on the edge of furniture, windows, doors, bookshelf, etc. You can purchase them as powdered form and then mix with water for preparing the spray.
  • Aerosol Spray: You can also use aerosol for destroying nets and killing black widow spiders. “WebOut Cobweb Eliminator” is a good product for destroying those devils. You will find many good aerosol from the market for killing black widow.
  • Squash the spiders: This is also a good technique to control black widow spiders. Squash them with any wood piece, shoe, rolled paper, or something like that. Do not use your naked hand for squashing them. They will bit you.

How to Prevent Black Widow Spiders

Prevent Black Widow Spiders

Black widow spider is one of the most dangerous species of spider. Sometimes they are 15 times dangerous than rattlesnake. I have already discussed How to Identify Black Widow Spiders. Today I will show you How to Prevent Black Widow Spiders. Prevention is better than cure. So, let’s start preventing black widow spiders in our property.

Regular Cleaning

Black widow spiders love to live in dark and places where human do not go regularly. Actually they like to live in such place where they can build net and hunt insects without any disturbance. Hole, cavities, cracks, window edges, around door frames, corner of the room, etc. So, if you can regularly clean your house specially those places, mentioned above then Black Widow Spiders will be discouraged to build nest into your house.

Clutter Management

Clutter is the heaven to black widow spiders. They love to make net inside clutter and people are bitten by black widow spiders frequently while cleaning those garbage. The chance of black widow spider’s infestation will reduce with the reduction of hiding places in the house. You should remove old and unnecessary clothes, shows, papers, books, etc. form your house.

Firewood and Debris Management

Firewood and debris are most likely place to back widow spiders for hiding inside and making nest. You should properly manage those things so that they never become the habitat of those deadly devils. You should remove unnecessary or unused portion from your house for preventing black widow spiders.

Remove vegetation, vines, and shrubs

Sometimes on our exterior wall of our house produce vegetation, vines, and shrubs. Those plants are safe habitat of spiders. Black widow spiders can build nest into those and come inside our house. So, you should regularly work for removing vegetation, vines, and shrubs for preventing black widow spiders.

Well Seal Your Door and Window

It is very important to seal your door and window properly for preventing black widow spiders. Very narrow space is enough for a black widow spider for entering into your house. So, you should seal each and every crack, cavity, hole for preventing them. You may use silica gel for sealing those cracks. You should sprinkle some pesticide dust into those cracks and cavities before sealing. This will kill black widow spiders if there is any.

Use Door and Window Screen

You can use door and window screen for preventing black widow spiders. If already you are using screens then make sure there has no holes or tears on the screen. And also ensure that the air ventilation screen is properly and tightly fitted. You should also install sweeps under the door and window for preventing black widow spiders.

Change Light Bulbs from Incandescent To Yellow or Sodium Vapor Varieties

Flies, insects, and crawlies are greatly attracted by traditional incandescent light bulbs. Black widow spiders are also attracted strongly by those lights, because those insects are their favorite food. So, you should change light bulbs from incandescent to yellow or sodium vapor varieties. Yellow or Sodium Vapor Varieties light do not attract insects.

Install Insect Trap in Your House

Another strong way of preventing black widow spiders in your house is to reduce the house insect’s infestation. By controlling other house insects you will be able to reduce the food supply of black widow spiders. You can control house insects by installing insect’s traps and baits into your house.

Use natural spider deterrents

This is a good idea for controlling black widow spiders without using any chemical pesticides.
  • Install Wrens Nest Box Into Your Garden: Wrens are great hunter of house insets. They kill every type of spiders including black widow spiders. You can encourage them for making nest into your garden by simply installing nest boxes. You may also use apple slices, peanut butter, bread crumbs, etc. for attracting wrens.
  • Use horse chestnuts: Horse chestnuts contains a chemical called “saponin”. Black widow spiders dislike saponin and always try to keep the safe distance form it. So, if you can sprinkle some horse chestnuts around the infested areas then the black widow spiders will stay away from those areas.
  • Use Lemon Oil: Black widow spiders dislike the smell of lemon. You can use lemon juice for preventing black widow spiders. Mix couple of lemon juices with 2 gallon of water and spray to the infested areas.
  • Use Peppermint Oil: Peppermint oil can also be used for preventing black widow spiders. They dislike the scent of peppermint oil and maintain safe distance from it. Very few drops of their essential oils is enough for getting rid of black widow spiders.
  • Use eucalyptus: Black widow spiders dislike the scent of eucalyptus. Simply sprinkle some leaves of eucalyptus around the infested area. This will control black widow spiders at home.

Hope you will be successful preventing black widow spiders in your house by simply following the steps described above. Have a black widow spider free house, have a safe house.
