Home spider control | best options for your home
on Saturday, June 29, 2013 by Terminix
Despite the fact that spiders are beneficial to keeping many insects and pests at bay, home spider control may be necessary for a number of reasons. First, it will help you avoid webs from appearing in and around your home. Spider control will also help protect your family from spiders whose bites can be dangerous, such as the black widow and brown recluse.
Home spider control tips
Large, persistent spider populations that are indoors indicate the presence of insects that make up their food supply. One goal of home spider control is to reduce insects that spiders can feed on; by doing so, you can reduce the number of spiders around your home. Piles of bricks, firewood or other debris also attract them because they build their webs there.
Use a broom or vacuum to remove webs and destroy any egg sacs or spiders that you discover. Seal cracks around windows and doors, as well as around light fixtures, vents and ceiling fans. In some cases, sticky traps like those used for cockroaches can also help with home spider control. Spider spray is available to treat surfaces, cracks and gaps where spiders may exist, but use caution when using these types of products.
