How can I get rid of a spider?

•The creatures love the dark and damp - so be sure to keep your house clean and airy to stop them settling in.

•Essentials oils are a great way to keep them at bay. Spiders “smell” with their legs and don’t like peppermint, lavender and citrus. Spray corners, window sills and skirting boards to keep them at bay. They also dislike tea tree, rose, cinnamon and eucalyptus.

•Seal up cracks in walls, floors and ceilings to stop certain spider access points.

•Set the cat on them!
