Hi! I recently found some large spiders in my room and am trying to find a way to deter them without hurting/bothering my rats. Through research I’ve found that putting vinegar or certain essentials oils around the room can deter, but have also heard in the past that these will bother my rats. Any ideas?

Find where they're getting in and seal it up. Usually a bad seal around a window or a door is the culprit. You can treat the outside of your house with something like Ortho Home Defense to keep insects and arachnids from coming into your house. Unless your home is near any drinking water supplies or ponds/creeks/etc. (you don't want those chemicals getting into water). You can also set up spider traps.
