Can You Keep Spiders Out Of Your Home?
While we have pest control teams that are experts in removing a variety of different insects, including spiders, for the most part, extermination is not something that is generally a big priority. Barring the poisonous spiders like the Black Widow, or very large infestations that are extremely rare, the average number of spiders in a home is not usually something that puts residents at risk.
However, if you’ve got a fear or strong dislike of them, none of the actual physical risks really matters. You don’t want these things in your home! So is there anything you can do to keep the spider population down in your home?
It’s All About Spiders
They are predators, which means that they only go to a place and take up residence if the hunting is good. So the degree to which you tolerate other insects in your home is going to determine just how welcoming a spider will find your home as well. In this regard, they are actually useful to homeowners, since you probably don’t like bugs, and the spiders want to eat them.
However, if you don’t like spiders, you’ll need to make sure that your home is low on insects, their primary source of food. No insects means spiders have no reason to stick around. For most homeowners, this is actually relatively easy to do for common parts of the home such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms.
Where the real problems come in is with less regularly visited parts, such as closets, basements and attics. They are often found in these areas, even if they’re not in other parts of the home, and they can expand from here. If you want to keep them out of the rest of your home, concentrate on keeping these areas bug free as well.
