Do you have a spider infestation? Let’s take a look at the signs. First of all, spiders can be anywhere in your home, but most likely they will be in dark secluded areas. You may see a host of spider webs that come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the species. They may be in the shape of an orb or funnel, near the floor. Some spiders don’t create intricate webs, but rather messy dens, hiding spots, or burrows. Many common spiders are attracted to damp environments, typically basements, laundry rooms, and entryways. Some will hide inside your attic and wall voids, while others will hide behind large appliances or inside closets and boxes.

The problem with spiders isn’t always that they bite. If you have spiders, that means your home is infested with other insects that they find to be a delectable food source. It also means you have to deal with the messy spider webs that clutter your ceilings and walls.

If you find yourself dealing with spiders on a regular basis, you can follow a few DIY steps to get you started in reducing their numbers. Most importantly you should seal off all entry points to avoid further infestation. Then get rid of spider webs and cobwebs and remove clutter in your attic, basement, storage, and closet spaces. Beware that it is almost impossible to control a spider problem on your own. In the end, the best strategy is to call a professional pest control technician to completely get rid of all the pests that are plaguing your home and attracting spiders.
