The Habits & Behaviors Of Common Spiders
The common spiders of Beaumont are looking for a few common things. If you understand what attracts spiders, you can reduce the number of spiders near your home.
- Spiders hide in objects around your home. Remove yard clutter to reduce spider activity.
- Spiders find food to eat in stacked wood, brush piles, leaves, and other organic habitats. Move these away from your exterior, or from your property altogether.
- Spiders eat insects that hang out around your trash receptacles. Keep trash covered and keep receptacles free of odors that attract insects.
- Spiders eat insects that are drawn to your exterior lights. Keep lights off or replace white lights with yellow lights.
- Spiders find a lot to eat in vegetation. Keep your landscape vegetation trimmed.
Remove attractive habitats, and spiders are less likely to get into your home, because you'll have fewer spiders exploring the exterior of your home.
What It Means If You're Seeing Spiders In Your Home
Now that you know what attracts spiders and how they get inside, the next thing you need to know is why they want to be inside your home. When spiders get into your home and don't find what they're looking for, they may go right back outside. How inclined they are to do this depends on the species. The two things spiders want to find in your home are bugs and moisture. Tackle indoor pest problems and plumbing issues quickly to make your home less inviting to spiders.
Five Eco-Friendly Spider Prevention Tips For Your Home
Let's build off what we've talked about so far. If you don't want spiders in your house, and we assume you don't, you need to remove the reasons they want to be near your home and seal your exterior so they can't get inside.
- Address the attractants covered in the first section of this article.
- Address moisture. When you clean your gutters and make repairs to your gutter system, this is another way to reduce the bugs that spiders eat.
- Remove spider webs. Some spiders create egg sacs in their webs, and an egg sac can have hundreds of eggs in it. When you remove spider webs, you reduce spider populations.
- Seal potential entry points. Spiders get into your home because they can. Fill in holes and seal cracks to keep them out. Be sure to closely inspect around exterior doors and utilities.
- Some spiders can be monitored and controlled with sticky traps. These are great for dealing with the harmless spiders that get inside, like daddy-longlegs spiders.
If you do these things, you can naturally deter spiders and reduce spider sightings in your home. This may be enough for you. If not, the best way to get rid of spiders and keep them away from your home is to contact a professional.
