Put the bag in the trunk and take it out of the car as soon as possible and leave it at home.Wash the car and vacuum thoroughly in the cabin. Spiders love to hide in dark, dirty places.

Do not leave the car running for a long time.
The vibrations of a turned on car can scare spiders, so when they start scattering, some of them may hide in the cabin. Try to start the car only when absolutely necessary, especially if spiders often enter the car. [
Spiders move in the direction of a running car, and not away from it, as they seek to find an "epicenter" where vibrations will not harm them. This behavior is similar to taking refuge in the eye of a hurricane.
The larger the car, the more likely it will attract spiders.

Scatter eucalyptus leaves around your car if you want to use a non-toxic spider spray.
Eucalyptus leaves are a natural plant-scented spider remedy. Place fresh eucalyptus leaves in various compartments of your car (such as the trunk or glove compartment) to keep spiders away from certain areas.
Eucalyptus leaves can be ordered online or purchased from your local nursery.
Turn off the interior lights when using the car.
Spiders are attracted by bright light, therefore, if spiders are in the car, we advise you not to turn on the light in the cabin. When you turn on your headlights at night, try to turn them off immediately after you park your car.
If someone in the car uses electronic devices, ask him to reduce the brightness of the screen.
Diesel cars are more likely to attract spiders because of their size and their tendency to vibrate when the car is started. Do not use or buy a diesel car if you are worried about a spider infestation.
If you are having trouble getting rid of spiders on your own, hire a pest control officer to assess the extent of the problem and relieve you of it.

Vacuum everywhere in your car. Put on a special nozzle on the vacuum cleaner pipe and remove all the egg bags, cobwebs and all the spiders you find. Pay special attention to corners, as well as areas under rugs and seats. Be sure to also clean up dirt, crumbs and other debris as they can attract spiders.
After vacuuming in the car, take out the bag of the vacuum cleaner and throw it away from the car so that the spiders cannot return.
Egg bags provide small, oval-shaped, silky, gray lumps.
