When it comes to spiders they can be a great addition to your yard because they eat the pests that are troublesome to your garden. Although they are a good pest to have in this sense, most people do not want to have them in and around their house. You want to know what types of spiders you might be dealing with this fall. Stewart Termite & Pest Control offers tips for dealing with spiders around your home.
What Attracts Spiders?
One of the things you should know is that spiders are setting up shop to get food to eat and a place to stay safe. When you walk around your house you can look at the corners and edges that would make a good spot for pests to hide. Most spiders will set up a web and wait for a passing pest to come by and get stuck. This means that they can have a meal. When you have your home treated for pests you are less likely to see spiders. They are only staying where there is a meal to have. If your home has been treated for pests the meals are gone.
Are Wolf Spiders Dangerous?
The spiders that you are likely to start seeing around your home and property are called a wolf spider. They are a spider that will not help your fear of spiders. They are a large spider that has very thick legs and hair along the body and the leg. They are also found sitting on the ground where they actually hunt for their meals. They are unlike other spiders because they do not make a web that they use to trap their meal. They will lay in wait and when an unsuspecting pest comes by they will jump out and attack it. They also are a spider that will hold their young on the mothers back. If you happen upon a mother wolf spider and you use a flashlight on them you might see hundreds of little shining eyes on her back. These are her young that will leave when they are big enough. They are not aggressive towards people and will do what they can to stay away from the bustle of the house. Wolf spiders aren’t deadly to humans, but they can still bite and cause uncomfortable symptoms.
