Spiders regularly inhabit homes as they accompany unknowing homeowners into their properties, attached to their clothes, furniture, or other goods. Once a spider has been sited in your home it is a good idea to get rid of it before it has a chance to mate and make your home a nesting ground. Here are a few precautions that will help homeowners keep their properties spider-free:
Regularly vacuum and clean your home. Regularly disposing of webs and egg sacs that are found in your home can help you keep spiders away. While you may not always spot the spider, getting rid of its webs and eggs will allow you to prevent more spiders from appearing.
Keep the outside of your home well-maintained. Spiders love to hide outdoors, and having poorly maintained grass, bushes, and trees give these creepy-crawlies more spaces to hide. Keeping the exterior of your home tidy will help you spot these pests before they get the chance to make it into your home.
Use spidercide! If you notice a loan spider crawling through your home, use spidercide or another spray to get rid of the spider and any accompanying spider-friends. If you notice a large amount of spider, it is best to call a pest control company to spray your home and create a “pest barrier” to keep these 8-legged-invaders away.
