How to Get Rid of Spider Webs on Outside Windows


Spiders set their webs up in an area they are sure will attract prey. That’s why outside windows are their favorite location and a nightmare for you. Here are a few solutions to that problem;

1. Before any spider camps on your window, apply peppermint oil to repel them. It will save you the struggle of cleaning the spider webs that are inevitably bound to form. Clean the windows regularly and spray cracks and crevices with vinegar. It helps kill the spiders and larvae hidden in there.

2. Vacuuming is an easy way to clear cobwebs. Use a handheld vacuum since it’s easy to maneuver. A standard vacuum with an extension nozzle will come in handy if you don’t have a handheld vacuum.

3. A cobweb duster helps clean spider webs on the outside windows. It traps all the webs and the debris in them and reaches the areas a vacuum cleaner cannot reach. If the webs have spiders nesting, kill them first to prevent spider bites. Perform the cleaning exercise with the windows closed.

4. Use a hosepipe to spray your windows with water. Ensure you completely drench the screens and windows to remove any spider webs trapped in cracks. When the window dries, apply preventive measures; spray the area with natural fragrances that spiders don’t love, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, and lemon oils.
