Another thing families love about our cubbies is…. No spiders!
Spiders like hot and dark places with nooks and crannies to hide in and feel safe. Our cubby houses with their open faces and spacious interiors are the exact opposite to this!
Spiders and creepy crawlies also hate our roofing, you will not get any long term 8-legged guests anywhere on our cubbies that have a clear view of our roof system. 8 years of thorough testing show that when the sun hits our roof, the spiders move out.
One of our customers, Nikki, lives in a country town in South Australia where red back spiders are rife! She told us “I read that spiders don’t like these cubbies, but didn’t really think to much about it until I look at it now and see this big, open cubby with literally no spiders in it.”
Nikki says she doesn’t have to worry anymore about the kids just running out each morning to play in their cubby house, unlike with their last closed in cubby where they would have to wait for mum to go in first, armed with insect spray and a broom!
Here is Nikki’s families bight and fun cubby. As you can see, not a creepy crawly in sight!
If you do have a lot of spiders around your area, as an additional deterrent to the fantastic “no spider” materials we use, we recommend spraying the framing with an outdoor spider spray. This will guarantee they stay away!
Cubby houses offer so many fantastic learning and play opportunities for children. They give us parents a bit of a break, too!And here’s some more great news: My Cubby currently has 15% off its cubby range with its New Year sale!*So, if you’ve been thinking of getting a cubby house
we promise we won't hassle you!
