Getting Rid of Spiders

Spider Facts You Need to Know, from Standard Exterminating Co.

Spiders Extermination

There are tens of thousands of spider species identified throughout the world. Like any creature, there are good and bad aspects. Having spiders and their webs around the house can keep other pests controlled naturally. Give some thought that spiders will make their webs in places where they are sure to catch food. These spots may indicate where other pests are likely to come in.

Spiders feed on prey they are able to subdue—and they become a problem for humans when they invade our space and become a biting nuisance. Most common spider varieties are harmless to humans, and they can be found anywhere. Spider species have been found in damp places, such as basements, as well as dry places such as attics and barns.

Many of us have a ‘fear factor’ when it comes to spiders and their webs; however, the most dangerous types of spiders we may encounter most are the black widow and brown recluse. Spider bites are rare, however, they may require first aid or other treatment if the person is small or immunity is compromised.

Some pest prevention tips for spiders include:

  • De-clutter your garage, attic, closets, and other storage spaces where household items are likely to accumulate.
  • Swap out cardboard or wooden crates for covered, plastic containers.
  • Repair, replace, or install screens over doors and windows.
  • Seal openings on the exterior of the structure.
  • Sign up for routine pest control services.
