Does Bleach Kill Spiders?


Bleach is considered a pesticide and fungicide because it kills bacterial cells, which makes it an option for spider control in your house.

How to Use Bleach to Kill and Prevent Spiders

  1. Mix one part bleach with three parts water in a spray bottle
  2. Spray the mixture directly on spiders from 6″ to 10″ away
  3. Dispose of the dead spider and clean the bleach from the surface where you sprayed
  4. Once a week, spray the mixture on areas where spiders have been known to nest or enter your home

A few things to consider:

  • Bleach can be dangerous, so be mindful where and when you’re spraying
  • This mixture will stain, so be diligent in your clean up methods
  • Store the bottle away from areas young kids can access
