Missoula is home to many different types of spiders and it is not uncommon to see one or two in your home or office. The presence of one or two spiders is actually beneficial, as they feed off of other pests, such as fleas and ticks, that are much more harmful. Still, when there are too many spiders around, it is enough to make anyone feel uncomfortable. So, how do you know when it is time to seek the help of a Missoula spider control company? Below are some signs that you should make the call today.
You See a Large Number of Spiders
Perhaps the most obvious sign that you need a Missoula spider control company is an alarming number of spiders. As an infestation grows, it becomes more and more difficult to eliminate the problem on your own. The products available on the market are also often unsafe to use, particularly if you are not familiar with how to use them. A spider’s egg sac can also contain hundreds and hundreds of spiders. This means that the one or two spiders you see now can soon turn into an extremely large spider population that is difficult to control on your own.
You See a Large Number of Spider Webs and Egg Sacs
Spiders are very adaptable at seeking out places they can hide and lay their eggs while still having relatively easy access to food and shelter. For this reason, you may not see the actual spiders, but you might see their cobwebs hanging down from the ceiling or in other areas. You may also notice spider webs in floor corners or in light fixtures. Wherever you find a web, a spider has made its home and while not in the web when you find it, it may soon return. You are likely also dealing with a fairly large infestation if the webs are rebuilt almost as quickly as you take them down.
