Helpful tips for preventing spiders from invading your property!
Spiders are arachnids and, therefore, all spiders have eight legs. All spiders also have two body regions and fangs, or chelicerae; they lack wings and have no antennae. Spiders are predators by nature and feed on insects, making them beneficial pests that help to protect our homes and gardens from damaging insects. As their name suggests, the house spider is the most common spider that can be found invading homes and yards. However, they are harmless as their venom is not strong enough to pose any health threats to people.
Spiders prefer to live outside but often move inside while following prey or when the weather outside becomes too cold, hot, dry, or wet. Instead of waiting for their prey to come to them, spiders ambush and chase down their prey. These arachnids are usually associated with the elaborate webs they build. However, not all spiders build webs. Some spiders create tunnels in the ground, in woodpiles, or between rocks. Whether they build a web or create a tunnel, spiders usually will choose a location that is quiet, out-of-the-way, and secluded.
Our highly-trained pest control experts have some helpful tips for preventing spiders from invading your property. Trim back overgrown shrubs and bushes from the exterior of your home. To deter spiders, clean up excess piles of debris from your property and storage areas that spiders could hide and nest in. It's also important to inspect your home’s exterior and seal any openings in the foundation, exterior walls, and around doors and windows.
