What Attracts Spiders to a Home?
In order to effectively carry out treatment for spiders in your home or business, you
need to understand what attracted them in the first place.
The following things attract spiders:
Mates: Male spiders are always on the hunt for females to mate with, so they
will enter a home or business if they can sense females present.
Shelter: When weather conditions are harsh, spiders will head inside in search
of a safe, cool, dark place to hide away. In addition, females will enter
a home or business in hopes of finding a safe place to lay their eggs. Most spiders
love dark, secluded areas such as basements, garages, and attics as well
as spaces with a lot of clutter.
Other pests: Spiders feed on other pests, including cockroaches, silverfish, mosquitoes,
flies, and more. They can sense when other pests are present, so they
will enter a home or business with plenty of pests to feed on. Unfortunately, that
often means that a home or business with a spider infestation is often also infested
with other pests.
Easy access: Certain things like stacks of wood, trees hanging over the roof, sheds,
and piles of leaves will attract spiders to your yard and make them more
likely to enter your home or business. Cracks, holes, gaps, or other forms of damage
to your home or business make it easy for them to enter.
How to Prevent Spiders
If you’re like most other home or business owners, you want to do whatever you
can to prevent spiders from entering your home or business.
Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to prevent spiders, including:
- Clear all clutter out of your home or business
- Make sure to regularly clean your home or business
- Repair any holes in your window or door screens
- Store all food in tightly sealed containers
- Seal any cracks or gaps in your foundation with caulk
- Schedule routine pest control
If there is a way to get into your home or business, spiders will find it. One of the
best ways to protect your home or business against serious spider infestations is
to schedule routine spider control. Year-round treatments can eliminate
any existing spiders in your home or business and prevent future invasions from taking place.
