5 Reasons For Spiders In Your Home

Standing Water

Contrary to popular belief, spiders drink water. They get hydration from their meals and from still, standing water. Don’t unknowingly invite a spider over for drinks. Instead, fully drain and dry the bottoms of your showers, bathtubs, and sinks.

Garbage/Trash Cans

What food is on a spider’s menu? Fruit fly sandwiches, cockroach salad, mosquito burgers, and moth chips! In other words, if you notice the presence of any of these insects in or around your trash cans, they may be the cause of your spider problem. To get rid of spiders, remove full garbage and contain all trash. A nice and clean home is a surefire way to deter spiders!

Mating Season

Every so often, spiders go through a mating period where they look to reproduce with other spiders. If you notice more spiders than usual in your home, it could simply be male spiders searching for a potential mate. These may have always existed in your home, but they may just be more active and visible.

Cracks Or Crevices

Spiders make their way into your home through open cracks and crevices in your foundation’s exterior. Stop spiders in their tracks by sealing cracks around your windows, walls, floor, and doorways. Likewise, replacing damaged window screens can help keep these pests from becoming your new roommates.

Dust & Dirt

The 3 D’s are known to attract spiders – darkness, dust, and dirt. That’s because dust and dirt piles can create the perfect, safe environment for spiders to build their shelter. Next time you clean your home, vacuum and dust diligently. Sweep up behind and underneath large furniture to fully remove cobwebs and dead bugs.
