When Spiders come out to Play

By March 30, 2017Spiders


It is hard to beat springtime. You’ve been cooped up in your home or office all winter long. Spending time outside when it is cold is something you do for only a short amount of time. With the arrival of spring, you are able to head outside and enjoy nice temperatures. You might begin yard work, or start thinking about what plants you will soon be planting in your flower beds. Something you might not be thinking about is spider control. Just as you come out of hibernation when winter leaves, spiders come out to play when the temperatures increase. If you begin to see spiders hatching in your home or coming out of hibernation, it is time for professional spider control.

Things you can do

One of the first things you can do to stop spiders from getting into your home is to make certain your door has weather stripping. If you can see light around your door when it is closed, spiders can get inside. Baby spiders are tiny. They can fit through very small gaps. Make certain your weather stripping is doing its job. The next step is to take a close look at your windows. There is nothing wrong with opening your window to let in a cool breeze, just make sure to check your window screens. If there are holes, get your screens replaced. The last thing to do is check the vegetation in your yard. If you have any bushes or trees that touch your home, it is time to trim them back. When vegetation is up against your home, it creates an insect habitat next to the walls of your home. Spiders eat insects. If you reduce the insect habitat, you reduce the number of spiders.
