What To Do When You See Spiders In Your Home

The last thing you want to worry about is any kind of pest infestation; however, even the cleanest of houses have seen their share of spiders. Whether you have a fear of spiders or not, seeing spiders in your house is not ideal.  Eco Advantage Termite and Pest Solutions is here to share all you need to know about spiders in Fayetteville, NC.

WHAT IS A COMMON HOUSE SPIDER
Common house spiders get their name because they are simply the spider most commonly found in homes. They are small in size, similar to the size of an apple seed. Their color varies on the color spectrum, from yellow to cream and gray to brown, additionally they have a variety of markings.

ARE HOUSE SPIDERS CAUSE FOR WORRY
Did you know that all spiders are venomous? This is because spiders need to bite and inject venom into their prey in order to eat it. House spiders, like most spiders, are not harmful to humans. The most damage house spiders cause is making spider webs. If you are noticing a spider infestation, it is a sign that another pest infestation is also present because the spider needs a food source. 

WHERE DO HOUSE SPIDERS HIDE
House spiders spend the majority of their time out of the way in basements, garages, crawl spaces, and attics. When they are in your house you will see them in the corners of walls, windows, ceilings, and under furniture. Most often you’ll see their presence from the webs they leave.

HOW CAN I PREVENT SPIDERS
One of the best ways to get rid of spiders in your home is basic maintenance and cleaning.  Vacuuming regularly can potentially rid your home of egg sacs, spider webs, and spiders themselves from floors, carpets, and corners. Decluttering takes away spiders’ places to hide throughout your home.

Another way to prevent spiders is to make your home difficult for spiders to get into. Inspect around your house, look for holes, gaps, or cracks in the siding, foundation, doors, and windows. Fill in any and all of the holes, cracks, and gaps with a caulking compound. Next, check all of your doors and windows for tears or holes in any screens. Replace any screens that have damage.
