Mum Uses Peppermint Oil To Keep Spiders Out Of The House

Mum Uses Peppermint Oil To Keep Spiders Out Of The House

Spider-phobes, unite! They might be starting to take over your home (that time of year again, innit) but we might have the solution to your nightmares in the form of a 30ml bottle of peppermint oil.

According to one mum, it's the 'best solution ever' - all you need to do is put a couple of drops into a diffuser and off you go.

Sharing her 'must try' with the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, the woman wrote: "Can I just say if you haven't already tried this then you really must now."

In her original post, she asked: "Do you hate spiders coming into your house?

"I have the best solution ever!! £10.75 for a 30ml bottle of peppermint oil from Holland & Barrett, couple of drop in my diffuser and no more spiders."

She did also add a quick warning for people to use with caution around children and animals, keeping the diffusers out of reach.

Then she concluded: "Thank me later."

People were impressed, with one quickly nipping out to get some before writing: "Guess who's bought some peppermint oil and a diffuser?"

Cat Completely Floods Owner's House After Learning To Use The Taps

Safe to say, it might be a good time to start using the oil (if it works, obvs) because giant, sex-crazed spiders are taking over our homes in their annual invasion.

Arachnids are looking for mates and with the weather taking a turn for the cold with each passing day, they'll be doing it in dry, warm spots - like under your pillow and on the couch.

Niiiiice.

Male house spiders are those big lads that seem to move at the speed of light - their leg span can grow to up to 10cm and, lucky us, it's their mating season.

Dr Terrell-Nield told The Mirror: "The spider that is coming into houses at the moment is the house spider and it is one of Britain's biggest spiders."

Happy Friday.
