How Do Spiders Get In?
Spiders get into our homes through the tiniest cracks under doors, around windows, and any other openings they can fit through. Even cracks in your walls around outdoor spigots can be big enough for spiders to get in through.
Why Do Spiders Come Inside?
Spiders come into our homes for a variety of reasons. Some species seek indoor spaces, while others prefer being outside. Spiders that do come inside usually do so for water, food, warmth, or to find a mate. In some cases, spiders are accidentally brought inside on firewood, plants, sporting goods, camping equipment, or clothing.
How Dangerous Are Spiders?
There are two main types of spiders that are dangerous in the United States, the Black Widow, and the Brown Recluse. Other spiders bite and may cause irritation, but rarely means having to go to the hospital. You can identify the Brown Recluse by a violin-shaped marking on its top. The Black Widow can be identified via the iconic red hourglass on its body.
Where Do Spiders Hide?
Some spiders like humid moist environments, while others prefer dry spaces. The one commonality between them is spiders like the dark. That means you’ll find more of them in attics, basements, crawl spaces, air vents, and in the corner of rooms near the ceiling.
What Do Spiders Feed On?
Spiders eat other insects, including other spiders they can defeat. Spiders don’t have mouths as we have, they dissolve their prey before eating them with a digestive enzyme before consuming them. With only one exception spiders are predatory hunters.
