Close the Gaps to House Spiders in Search of Prey
How do you get spiders in the house? House spiders find their way in through gaps that make tiny entryways for them. Any types of house spiders can hunker closer to the ground and effectively make themselves smaller to fit through unseen gaps and cracks in the home. They’ll usually enter in search of prey.
It’s important to note if you’re seeing the same type of spider over and over again, or if you’re simply seeing many different types of spiders. Different types of spiders often point to bugs getting into your home, and spiders feeding on them. Seeing the same type of spider repeatedly could point to a more sustained population of spiders in the house.
Get Rid of Spiders
This makes the primary way to get rid of spiders pretty indirect. You can focus on the spiders, but so long as other bugs are making it into the home, more house spiders will keep on coming in. Spider control is dependent on other forms of bug control. Most likely, other bugs are finding their way in the same way that your spiders are getting in.
This means that effective spider control involves closing and sealing those gaps from the outdoors. Eliminate the spiders’ source of food, and you’ll get rid of spiders themselves. Sometimes these gaps are readily apparent. Make sure to check screen windows as well – they aren’t always fitted as well as you think. Crawl spaces and basements often have a multitude of unseen entry points. If you need help with this process, we specialize in securing homes from bugs and spiders in this detail-oriented manner.
Of course, you may already have a sustained infestation in the house that’s drawing those spiders in. Alternately, you may have a sustained infestation of spiders themselves. A few bugs and the spiders that follow is something you can handle. For any problem that becomes bigger or longer-lasting than this, you need to call a professional pest exterminator like Ransford. Full-blown infestations cannot be handled on your own.
