Watch Out For Spiders This Fall!
While you may be excited about cool crisp days and lower humidity, you likely are not too excited about the increase in the number of spiders that you might have seen crawling around inside your house over the past few weeks. You’ve probably wondered why you are seeing so many spiders. The answer is pretty simple.
It’s spider season!
That’s right, fall is the time when male spiders go out on their quest to find a mate. Spiders
also sense the cooler temperatures and often go looking for a warmer place to stay during the cold, winter months. In your home they find a warm space that offers plenty of protection from the elements, as well as from potential prey. If you continue to see spiders, you may be wondering what you can do in terms of spider control.
Keep Your Outdoor Lights Off
Keeping your lights on outside attracts many of the pests that spiders eat. By keeping those outdoor lights off, you will indirectly keep spiders away as well.
Keep Plants and Shrubs Away From Your Foundation
Vegetation that is located near your foundation offers an ample hiding spot for spiders and other insects. If your insect problem is bad enough, you may want to transplant your shrubs to another area of your yard.
Contact a Pest Control Professional
While it is possible to squash or relocate spiders when you see them, chances are there are many more that are hiding out of sight. To get rid of spiders in your home once and for all, you should contact a South Carolina exterminator who is well versed in the types of spiders that plaque our communities and will have your spider problem under control in a short amount of time.
Seal Up Any Cracks
Aside from calling a professional, you also may want to seal up any holes that you see in and around your home. This version of spider control can do wonders to keep all types of pests out of your home this winter in addition to spiders. You should also check windows to ensure that screens are not torn and you can even invest in fine mesh screens for your vents and chimney to prevent spiders from making their way into your home.
