Spiders are probably one of the least favorite creatures to see in your home. Besides looking creepy, some are dangerous to humans and pets. Both the black widow spider and brown recluse spider are found here in Arizona. So how do you protect your home from becoming a habitat for these unwanted guests? At Wagner Pest Solutions, we get over 100 calls a year about black widow spider bites alone, so we have a few ideas on what you can do to keep spiders at bay.
1. Keep woodpiles away from the house.
Spiders build webs on woodpiles, so if you have a wood-burning stove or an indoor fireplace, keep the wood outside. As tempting as it might be to keep some handy, either inside or on your porch, it would be safer to have it a bit farther away from your home.
2. Check attics and garages for spider webs.
Most spiders just want to be left alone, in dark, quiet places. Still, you don’t want to find black widows or brown recluses inside your home. These spiders are fairly recognizable, but if you’re not sure, feel free to give Wagner Pest a call for help.
