Why Are There Spiders In My Home?

Spiders are excellent hiders. If you are seeing a few spiders around your home, they probably aren’t actually new to your home, they’ve just been hiding and are now emerging to find food or a mate. Experts estimate that only about 5 percent of the spiders you see in your home have ever ventured outside.

 So why are they there to begin with? Spiders need moisture, food and shelter, all of which your home provides. Since you can’t completely eliminate any of these aspects from your home, what else can you do to rid your home of spiders? 

3 Ways To Get Rid Of Spiders

Most spiders are harmless to humans, so if you have found one of the 3,400  spider species in your home that aren’t poisonous, it’s not totally necessary to get rid of them. However, many of us have a tough time thinking about spiders freely living in our home and might want to rid our homes of them anyway. Read on to discover 3 ways to eliminate spiders from your home.

1: Clean The Inside Of Your Home

Where there are any other bugs, you will find spiders. If your home is cluttered or dusty, or in any way inviting to other bugs, you likely have many spiders excited to make a meal of any bugs that your messiness may attract. Clear any clutter, such as stacked books, overfilled closets and any other area where spiders can make their home and lay eggs. Vacuum your home to get rid of spider webs, egg sacs and even spiders themselves from your home. 

2: Make The Outside Of Your Home Less Spider Friendly

Just as spiders like to hide in clutter in your home, they also like to hide in clutter outside your home. Remove any hiding places from your greenery or landscaping such as rock mounds, compost heaps or piles of wood. Make sure the outside of your home is also free from cobwebs and spider egg sacs by power washing the outside of your home and cleaning window shutters and window sills regularly. 

3: Spidercide

There are a few commercial insecticides specifically designed for spiders that you can get at your local hardware store, however, when dealing with any kind of insecticide, it’s always best to call on a professional pest control specialist. If you want to try to get rid of spiders on your own, it is best to use traps or sprays, as foggers are ineffective at eliminating spiders as they are so adept at hiding from common areas. Spider traps, such as glue traps, are non-toxic and cheap, but aren’t particularly useful if you have larger infestations.  

Since spiders live in your home year-round where you most likely won’t see them, spider control can be complex and taxing. Let someone else do the work for you and ensure that your spider problem will be entirely taken care of. Reach out to a pest control professional today.
