Spiders: The Unwelcomed House Guest

Spiders are one of the most feared and misunderstood pest that humans come into contact with. Associated with Halloween and other creepy images, spiders, upon sight, tend to give many the chills and are definitely an unwelcome visitor in most homes. With over 3,000 types of spiders in the world, there are only a few that are dangerous to humans.

Spider webs in a cornerSpiders are most active in homes during the late summer and fall months, as spiders begin to make their way into homes to prepare for the cold, winter months. When seen in homes however, spiders will rarely bite people, and in most cases when a spider does bite it is more of a reactionary measure when they are startled rather than with the intent to attack. Spiders will build their nests in areas where prey is easiest found. Nests are usually built in dark and protected areas such as under rocks, in wood piles, or even under furniture.

Spider control is important for homeowners, as this preventative measure helps to keep any potential harm as well as anxiety away from your family. Because there are so many types of spiders, having a treatment that is going to be designed for the particular spider is important. The incorrect use of over-the-counter materials can actually be hazardous to families with small animals and children. Hiring a trained pest control technician who has both the tools and training necessary to efficiently handle a spider problem is always recommended.
