Pests typically enter a home looking for food and water. While spiders are also looking for this nourishment, they are not interested in what is in the cupboards or on the countertop. Instead, spiders enter a home looking for ants and other pests they can eat. Spiders also enter homes in search of warmth and sometimes, even a mate.
Spiders are more likely to enter a home when there is an existing colony of another insect. In some cases, people unknowingly bring spider colonies into their home when those colonies are nesting in an item, such as older furniture, that is brought into a home. For the most part, spiders do not like to be out in the open and so, most typically remain in basements, crawl spaces, and other areas where there is not a lot of activity. Once an infestation is spotted, it is important to speak to a spider control service in Wentzville.
How to Keep Spiders Out of the Home
The only way to ensure you will never have a spider problem in your home is to prevent them from coming inside in the first place. One of the best ways to do this is to prevent clutter from collecting in your home. Spiders love clutter because it provides them with a place to hide and build their spider webs. Dusting regularly can also help you spot spiders so you can remove them.
Even more importantly than cleaning the inside of your home, it is crucial to keep the exterior of your home clean, as well. This after all, is where spiders come from in the first place. Vegetation attracts spiders because it can collect moisture, and because it also provides an ideal place for spiders to live and hide. Remove all vegetation away from your home and do not allow anything to lie along the foundation of your home. Spiders can make their way into a home using even the smallest crack or crevice.
There are some substances that are not attractive to spiders. These include cedar, citrus peels, chestnuts, and mint. Although these are deterrents for spiders, they are usually not enough to remove an infestation.
