Spiders are beneficial to the ecosystem and can help you with pest control! That’s right, the spider works for EcoTech! No. The spider has likely already invaded your home during the summer months to seek refuge from the heat and dryness of the summer months. They come out from hiding in the cooler fall months to begin spinning webs and seeking out food sources (other insects). While most spider bites are simply frustrating, there are a couple of spider species whose bite can be harmful to small children. For this reason, if you feel you have spiders inside your home and need professional help, EcoTech is standing by.
Spider Control In Interior Spaces
As mentioned, spiders are more likely to be inside the home during the warmer summer months, though it is not unheard of to see a spider inside your house during any season of the year. The peak of human interaction, outside of the summer months is early fall, when spiders may still be searching for winter hibernation spots indoors.
Controlling spiders on the inside of a house has proven to be difficult, if you’re looking for 100% removal. Homes located near rivers and lakes (which is many homes, here in the land of 10,000 lakes), tend to have larger populations of spiders living around the property as insects are more prevalent. There are a few things that you can do yourself to help minimize spiders inside your home:
● Keep the house as clean as possible.
● Remove clutter and stacked boxes, papers, etc.
● Remove webs that form in corners and along walls and ceilings.
● Keep the pest population down within the home as this is what feeds spiders.
Spider Control On The Exterior Of Your Home
If you find it necessary to gain some control of the number of spiders around the exterior of your home, there are some simple things you can do:
● Remove debris piles (such as wood) away from your structure, as these are prime homes for spiders.
● Keep grass cut short.
● Keep bushes and shrubs from any direct contact with your home.
● Remove webs that form near rooflines and around windows.
● Seal cracks and gaps around the foundation of your home.
