During the fall, many homeowners begin to notice more spiders in their homes. They appear out of nowhere, and you begin to see webs in every corner. While being fearful of spiders is normal, most of them are relatively harmless. In fact, of the 3700 species of spiders in the United States, only a few are toxic to humans. Still, these creepy little crawlers call for pest control services from Wagner Pest Solutions.
Why Spiders Are Active in the Fall
You could go all summer and not see a spider in your home. Then, as soon as fall approaches, you are finding two or three a week. That’s because spiders who make it to the summer tend to lie low and grow. By the time the weather begins to cool down, they’re ready to build their webs and find a mate. So, while it seems like they’re coming in from the outdoors, they’ve actually been hiding in your home the entire time.
Why Spiders Come Into Your Home
Like any insect, spiders crawl into holes and crevasses, often finding their way into your home by accident. If you’re killing more spiders than usual, it’s time to inspect your home for common hiding spots. These might include under the beds, in the corners of cabinets, and in the hidden spaces in the basement. Spiders also make their way into your home because you haven’t tidied up in a while. If a room in your home is messy, then it’s time to clean it up before spiders use it as a nesting spot. Having your home sprayed for bugs and spiders yearly is also a great way to keep these pests out of your home.
