Where spiders hide
A colorful garden spider is a fascinating thing to see, its web woven in intricate patterns is something to appreciate. But move that same spider and/or web inside and suddenly it is a terrifying thing nightmares are made of. No one wants to live with spiders, no matter their size or color. First of all, spiders are sneaky and there is never any warning when they suddenly creep close to you. Spiders like to stay hidden mostly in dark corners, closets, attics or basements. Blindly reaching your hand into a corner or closet can be dangerous because some spiders bite when they feel their web to be threatened. If you venture up into your attic or down into a basement and notice the presence of spiderwebs, you are in need of Portland spider control.
Is year round spider control necessary?
Most homeowners notice an increase of spider sightings in the spring and summer with the number of encounters decreasing by the fall. It would appear that spiders disappear altogether in the winter, but this is not the case. Some spiders have short life spans, hatching in the spring, laying their egg sac in the fall and dying about the same time. With this type of spider, year round spider control is absolutely essential because Pointe Pest Control technicians will be able to find and remove egg sacs filled with spiderlings sure to cause a panic attack when they hatch in the spring. Other types of spiders can live longer, even several years. These kinds of spiders hide and they are good at it. They stay hidden and out of sight until you move boxes or clear out a closet and spotting them causes a fright. Year round Portland spider control is necessary in both situations.
