The nudging method

This is one of the best methods to get rid of spiders in your hotel room.  The method enables you to get the spider out of the house once they are close to the door, window or any other outlet.

This keeps the spider away from the room.

Covering up all gaps and cracks around the house or hotel room especially in the floorboard is a very important step towards keeping the intruders away. The fact about spiders is that they gain access to the house through these gaps and cracks. Sealing them up will make it very uncomfortable for them to stay in the house.  Another any you can repel spider in the house or hotel room is by placing fine mesh over large holes to hinder spiders from gaining entrance.

Therefore, removing cobwebs is one of the potent ways to get rid of spiders.

The cup and glass method is a well-known method for getting rid of the interlopers.  This method requires the use of a cup and glass. A bit of card is also needed. Care must be taken when carrying out this procedure. The first step to take is to cover the spiders with the cup and carefully slide the card underneath it. Take the spiders to a far destination away from home and let them enjoy their new environment.
