Spiders are a common household pest that many people dislike. While they do eat other insects such as roaches, aphids, moths, and earwigs, having a consistent population of spiders in your home could indicate underlying problems. Spiders are attracted to areas with other insects, so if your home does not have them, the spiders will not have any reason to stay.

Insects in the home are not only irritating but also dirty and can carry diseases. Therefore, it is crucial to prevent them from entering your home and making them comfortable. The best way to keep spiders at bay is to keep your home tidy by cleaning kitchen sink, floors, and counters regularly. Additionally, eliminate spider webs as soon as you see them and vacuum your home regularly. Do not keep plants and shrubbery directly against the side of your house, as the leaves touching the siding can cause mold and mildew in the walls of your home, providing access to pests that can cause damage from the inside out. Prune bushes from the siding to be at least 6-12 inches away.

If you are dealing with a spider infestation, it is best to hire a qualified pest control specialist likePlank Termite and Pest Control to ensure that the infestation is dealt with properly.
