How do spiders get into the home, and where do they like to hide?
The most common way for a spider to enter your home is through cracks in doors, windows, the walls, the floors, etc. Homes with old, wooden foundations are more susceptible to being invaded by spiders. Spiders love places where there is a lot of clutter because it helps them stay hidden and away from human contact. Empty shoe boxes, unused bookshelves, desks, tables, and closets are some of the favorite hiding spots of spiders.
Are spiders problematic for homeowners?
Most spiders found in the home will not cause any harm to people. However, there are rare occasions where extremely poisonous varieties will find themselves sharing a residence with a family. Generally, they will linger in a house of there is food readily available for them to eat. If you seem to have a lot of other insects in the house, spiders will want to stick around. Some people will reason that spiders are actually more beneficial than harmful because they eat other bugs and clear your house of certain pests, but the fact is that the majority of people don't want to see them around at all. Spiders can be ugly, creepy, and scary to kids and many adults.
How do I get rid of the spiders?
There are a number of things that you can do to decrease spider presence in the home. You can start by cleaning up your house if it is messy and cluttered. Keep the home nice and neat so that spiders don't have nooks and crannies to hide in. Next, if you have a yard or garden, try to keep it tidy and maintained. Overgrown shrubs and trees that come into contact with a house can be bridges for spiders to cross into a residence. Keep external trash bins and dumpsters distanced from the house. Many insects like ants and flies are attracted to garbage, so spiders will come along looking for them. You should search for cracks around the house, especially those on basement and lower floors, and seal them up. Finally, if the above doesn't make them go away, give us a call to help you get rid of the bugs for good.
