Scared of spiders? We've got some bad news for you

Experts have announced that a 'spider invasion' is set to hit the homes of thousands of Brits over the next few weeks.

After an unusually warm summer, it is estimated that around 150 arachnids will creep into homes this month as spider breeding season oficially begins.

However, instead of pulling out the hoover or waiting for your brave flatmate to come home, why not try banishing the eight-legged critters yourself?

By mixing 20 peppermint oil drops with two parts vinegar and one part water in a spray bottle, you will create the perfect spider-banning solution. 

Focus on any small gaps you may have in your home including vents, doorways and any corners you usually find spiders. 

Not only will the mixture send spiders scuttling away, it won't harm them at all! Just remember to spray your home with the mixture on a weekly basis.
