What are Spiders?
Typically, spiders are classified as 8 legged arthropods that are known for spinning intricate, beautiful webs, as well as some species being known to carry a nasty poisonous bite. While spider infestations are less common than other types of pests, if you do see an excess of spiders in or around your home, there’s bound to be more extensive pests elsewhere.
As spiders tend to follow where the food goes, if you notice more spiders around your home you may have an excess of ticks, gnats and flies, ants or centipedes in your home that you cannot see. In order to tackle your infestation problem, a professional pest control company can ensure you take the necessary precautions and get the job done the first time.
Store Bought Insecticides
Spider repellents available at your local store usually consist of a spray that you can spray around your home. When spiders move, they don’t drag their bodies, so they can step over insecticide. Moreover, because they don’t have a circulatory system that will carry the chemical from their feet to their organs, and because they don’t groom themselves as insects do, that method won’t typically work.
In order to effectively use this method, you should concentrate your efforts around spider hotspots, such as on the surface of entry points. If you are unsure where to locate such hideaway spots, a professional pest control company can ensure you find the right solutions.
Eliminate Other Pests
As we said, spiders tend to eat other insects in your home. Therefore, by eliminating other insects, you will naturally reduce the spider population. Maintaining a tidy, clean home free of clutter is key to preventing other insects. You may also find other insects attracted to your kitchen if you have leaks or problems with your plumbing.
In order to eliminate other pests and decrease your spider problem, be sure to repair any issues in your plumbing or foundation of your home. The smallest openings can be used by spiders to enter homes. Using caulk is an easy way to stop spiders and other insects from getting into your home through cracks and crevices. Be sure to inspect your doors, windows, and garage for obvious openings before applying the caulk.
Adjust Your Light Settings
Due to insects’ attraction to light and spiders’ feeding habits, you will likely find webs and spiders near light sources that attract their prey. Depending on the spider, some jump, some run, others sit still in their webs, watching for prey to come to them.
In any case, it’s smart to keep an eye on your outdoor and indoor light sources to ensure no spider webs have been constructed. If they have, you can either carefully remove them with a piece of paper and place them away from your home, or you can contact a local pest control company such as Certified Pest Control to take care of the issue for you.
