As the summer comes to an end, the temperature drops and the humidity in the air rises. This is the time when spiders retreat to warm places. One of the warm retreats is the house. Most people resent spiders, not only because of the cobwebs but also because many people have a phobia against spiders, causing panic and fear at the sight of them. The simple removal of cobwebs is mostly pointless because if the spiders are there they will immediately start weaving new ones. The big question is: how do you get rid of spiders?

How do you get rid of spiders permanently?

There are a great number of products on the market repelling or killing spiders. Killing spiders within the house by using poison and other chemicals is only a short-term solution and not recommendable, as it is also unhealthy. Sooner or later new spiders will move in and the poison has to be distributed again. The other unpleasant side-effect of using sprays is the dead animals that remain. They will dry up or decompose and need to be cleaned up. There it is also not a solution to catch every spider in a glass and bring it out into the garden. Spiders can be driven out of the house effectively and permanently by using ultrasonic sound. This will not only drive them out, but they will also dissuade them from entering the area. The emitted frequencies cause a great discomfort to the spiders and they will instinctively look for quieter areas settled down. The effect will not take place immediately as spiders need time to respond to the ultrasonic sound and to move locations, but after a few weeks the rooms in which such a device is used will be free of all spiders and permanently stay so.

Damage caused by spiders.

Actual damages on objects or humans caused by the common spider do not occur. In the case of the spiders it is more a matter of cobwebs and psychic stress for people who resent them. Although the spider search is not a threat, many feel threatened by the spider when it moves into the house. In the opinion of psychologists the widespread fear of spiders is due to the fact that the spider subconsciously poses as a superior animal, due to its eight limbs and fast movements. Most animals with six or eight limbs cause anxiety with humans or are found to be repulsive. Their size, their mobility and the fact that they move silently enhance this feeling. The presence of a spider gives many people sleepless nights and panic reactions. Spiders can be found in nearly every room of the house and they have no problem in adapting to their surroundings. To get the problem of spiders out of the way and to drive them out of the house we recommend Gardigo Spider Repellent products. The Spider Repellent Plug and the Spider Free both use ultrasonic frequencies and make sure that spiders will leave the area after a short time.

Why is the spider the useful animal in the human environment?

Cobwebs might be unpleasant for humans but they are also very useful. Cobwebs not only catch flying insects such as mosquitoes and flies, they also catch flying dust, dirt and other particles and clean the air. Spiders feed on insects and by doing so they keep the house clean of flies, mosquitoes, ants and other insects.

The appearance of spiders.

Spiders have eight legs. The legs are multifunctional. They are not only used for movement but also for catching and detecting prey and building spider webs. The body is oval shaped and looks as if it consists of two parts. Normally the back part of the body is larger than the front part. The eight legs are attached to the front part. Many spiders are covered with small hairs which are also used to detect movement. The jaws of the spider include the poison fangs. Many spiders paralyze their prey with the poison, inject an enzyme into the insect and then suck it out.

The garden spider is often also called the common house spider. Its natural is in the warm damp soil of the garden. When the days get shorter and the evenings colder garden spider will again look for places that are warm and damp. In a human habitation this can be a bathroom, a seller or even a drainpipe. The garden spider feeds on insects or on bacteria. If its surroundings do not have enough air humidity, it is quite likely to dry out. The lifespan of the common garden spider can be between 2 to 3 years.


The mating season of the common garden spider begins in August. Very often the male will become eaten after mating. The male spiders can only find out if the female is ready to mate if they approach the female spider directly. They do this very carefully always in danger of becoming prey. Mating takes place within seconds and then the male has to flee again. After mating the spiders will lay a cocoon of eggs which will be kept safe for the winter and hatch in spring.
