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.
