When are Spiders a Problem?
There are lots of pests that could be getting in your house. They tend to come and go depending on the time of year. When it comes to spiders they are an issue all year long if they are left alone. The most common time that people see them moving around the house or around the property is in the fall weather. The fall is when the weather starts to cool off and the spiders are usually looking for a place to find a mate. If they can get in your house where it is temperature controlled they will. When they are searching for a mate they are more likely to be seen out and not hidden away like they used to. You want to make sure that when the fall weather comes in you are prepared to handle an influx of spiders.
What Do Spiders Eat in the House?
The first thing you can do to keep just about any pest out of your house is to stop feeding them. The majority of pests are looking for a way to make their life easier. When they have access to a house that has crumbs and other food they are willing to stay. The same goes for spiders and keeping them out of your house. Spiders are an interesting type of pest in what they are looking to eat. They are actually not there for your spilled breakfast cereal or your dog’s left over food. They are in fact looking for other pests to eat. They will set up shop where they can get other pests that might be hanging around your house such as flies, cockroaches, crickets and more. When you take away the other pests that the spiders might be feeding on they usually will find a better place to live.
