Spiders have their purpose in this world, just not in your home. Spiders are common in homes during warm weather, although they can be found indoors any time. Their numbers usually peak during late summer and fall, during their mating season.

Where Do Spiders Hide?

Where Do Spiders Hide

Most spiders will be found outside your home in grass or wood piles, or in darker places like inside the garage or under your deck. It is very important to inspect the areas you frequent outside your home for spider infestation.

Equally important is inspecting potential access points of your home. Chances are that if a spider is inside your home, it is looking for food and thereby following other insects inside.

Which Spiders Are Dangerous?

Are There Dangerous Spiders? There are some spiders we need to be wary of: brown recluse, black widow, hobo and yellow sacks. Black widows especially like crawl spaces in homes. If the wrong kind of spider bites a person or pet, you could have a real problem. The best solution to spider control is prevention.

How To Keep Spiders Out

What can we do to keep the spiders out of our home?
  • Indoors, regular house cleaning provides adequate spider control.
  • Vacuum up the spider and its web.
  • Prevent clutter buildup that can provide hiding places.
  • Remove spider webs from the exterior of the house with a broom or high pressure hose.
  • Indoors, squash spiders or capture them in a jar and release them outdoors.
