Rather than having to catch the spiders in your home and usher them outside, it might be more useful to know how to prevent them from entering in the first place.

Well it's good news, because Scientists in America have found a clever hack to help keep spiders at bay, and it's very simple. 

The research team made their own natural repellent by mixing peppermint oil (£1.99, Amazon) and water together and spraying it around doors and windows.

Tips for using the solution

1. Vacuum and dust your home to get rid of any pre-existing webs.

2. Mix the two-part solution by adding 20 drops of peppermint oil to a spray bottle of water.

3. Spray the solution around the house, especially in the corners of rooms.

4. Repeat this once a week. If spiders are still showing up spray every few days.

5. Keep your windows open to allow fresh air to enter while you spray.

This spider repellent spray is great because it doesn't harm the creepy crawlies, it simply discourages them from entering.

If you are fully determined to keep the spiders out, then you can also add peppermint plants to the outskirts of your house.
