Spider Control Made Easy: How To Keep Your Spring Home Spider-Free

There are many people in Texas that are more scared of spiders than they are of any other animals in the world. And while these tiny creatures may look creepy, there are only a few species that are able to cause you harm. Still, spiders are not something that you want roaming around your home. At Modern Pest Control, our team of experienced Spring pest control specialists can help keep you and your family safe by eliminating these bothersome animals from your home. 

Spiders Are Not Insects But Arachnids

Many people mistakenly think that spiders in Spring are a type of insect. However, they are actually a species of arachnid. Insects and arachnids have some similarities, but they also have a lot of differences as well. One of the main differences is the number of legs that they have. Insects only have six legs, and arachnids have eight legs. 

Both of these animals also have segmented bodies. However, the insect's body is separated into three segments, and an arachnid only has two different segments, which include the abdomen and the cephalothorax. 

Reasons For Spiders In The Home

Usually, when you see spiders in your home, it is a sign that you have another problem in your home. Spiders like warm and moist areas that have plenty of food. They like to eat other insects and sometimes other spiders. If you are seeing spiders in your home, it could mean that you also have a secondary insect infestation in your home. 

Some of the other reasons why a spider will come into your home could include:

  • Seeking shelter: Spiders don't do well in extreme weather conditions. If the temperature gets too hot or too cold, or there is a lot of rain and bad weather, a spider will try to come into your home to seek shelter.

  • Searching for food: Human and pet food doesn't attract spiders. However, it will attract the insects that spiders eat. If you have food out in the open, it could attract bugs, which will essentially attract spiders as well.

  • A safe place to stay: Spiders are both predators and prey. Once they are able to come into your home, they are likely to stay if they can find plenty of places to hide.

If you are seeing several spiders in your home on a daily basis, you should have your home inspected as soon as possible. An experienced pest control specialist will be able to find out how and why spiders are coming into your home. 

Tips To Prevent Spiders And Their Pest Prey

There are a few things that you can do to keep all spiders away from your home, which include:

  1. Fix moisture issues in your house.
  2. Remove any clutter from your yard and the inside of your home to eliminate hiding spots.
  3. Have your home inspected and treated for an insect infestation.
  4. Don't leave firewood too close to your home.

You should also make sure to keep all dry food in a sealable container, empty your garbage cans often, and pick up your pet's food and water dish. This will help to prevent the spider's food source from coming into your home.
