Known as Class Arachnida, spiders have eight legs and two distinct body segments. Although spiders do not have wings or antennae like insects, they can easily infest a home and make themselves a nuisance.
Spiders prefer to live in dark, moist environments, so it is common for them to make homes in basements, crawl spaces, attics and closets. Spiders feed on other insects, so it is also common for an insect infestation to lead to an infestation of spiders. Female spiders reproduce by creating an egg sac to hold their young. Spiderlings molt and become adults over time, creating a cycle of infestation.
Without professional intervention, it is easy to wipe out the adult spider population in your home only to discover that a new generation has emerged. To ensure total pest elimination, Preventive Pest Control exterminates spiders at all stages of the life cycle to ensure that they aren’t able to breed
There are many ways in which spiders can enter the home, but improperly screened doors and windows are the most common. Check for cracks in your door and window frames that spiders may be using as an entrance. It is also possible for spiders to infest the home by coming in on boxes and old items that haven’t been moved for a long time. Spiders gravitate towards objects and areas of the home that have remained undisturbed for a significant amount of time.
Presence of Spider Webs
One of the first signs of a spider infestation is the increased appearance of spider webs. Spiders produce a highly elastic silk material they use to create egg sacs and spin webs to trap prey. If there are many spider webs around your home, you likely have a growing spider population. Some webs may appear thickly clustered and almost opaque, while others follow a thin, classic spider web pattern.
Some spiders create burrows or live in tight spaces around the home. These spiders often hide in or under cabinets, within cracks in the walls, and in basements and crawl spaces. Any gap in your foundation can serve as a home for certain species of spiders. To prevent infestation, our licensed spider control technicians will ensure that any gaps or cracks in the foundation of the home are filled so spiders can’t simply escape and return later.
Despite the fact that they cannot chew, many spiders have a painful bite, which can be the first sign of an infestation and the need for spider control. While some spiders are venomous, most are only capable of seriously harming small prey such as insects and mice. Despite the fact that very few spiders are lethal to adults, their bites can still be painful. Proper spider control is the only way to completely prevent spider bites in your environment. Pest control services keep your home and family safe from common household spiders as well as venomous species.
While some spider infestations are obvious, others occur in areas of the home that are not frequently visited. If you believe that you have a spider infestation, the best thing to do is to consult a professional pest control service.
From inadequate seals on doors and windows to cracks in your home’s foundations, our elite team is trained to pinpoint your house’s weaknesses and address them. Get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is pest-free and continually protected from infestation.
Simply treating a spider infestation may make the pests disappear for a limited period of time, but it is likely that they will come back at a later date. It is vital to address the long-term issues in your property with Preventative Pest Control that are making it vulnerable to pests in the first place.
