Small spider seen moving in woman’s ear
Spiders are a scourge to country living — but experts say you can get rid of them with two common household items.
The nasty arachnids have what’s known as toxic, necrotic venom — which means that the minute they bite, they can kill the tissue that they infect.
Depending on the type and size of the bite, the venom can lead to death — and this often happens with small animals.
While brown recluse spiders aren’t considered fatal to humans, they can cause an uncomfortable and painful blistering rash. So, experts say that these two household items can do wonders in getting rid of them.
Apple Cider Vinegar
The pungent smell of apple cider vinegar repels most household insects, and brown recluse spiders are no exception.
What’s more, because it’s non-toxic, it’s safe to use around homes with small children and pets.
And should you find a brown recluse spider despite your best efforts to spray your home with apple cider vinegar, the acetic acid present in the vinegar can kill them if sprayed directly on them.
There’s an easy way to make a quick, inexpensive, and non-toxic repellant using apple cider vinegar and another household item.

Experts recommend combining equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water, followed by a few drops of dish soap.
For example, if you mix one cup of water with one cup of apple cider vinegar, add two drops of dish soap to the mix.
Then, add it to an empty spray bottle.
Finally, spray the mixture liberally around the home, especially in areas where brown recluse spiders tend to congregate.
