The number of spiders increases considerably at the end of the summer season and the beginning of autumn. This is because male spiders find their way into homes in search of a mate. If you would like to spend this autumn without this eight-legged pest inside your home, check out the below-given tips that help you keep the spider out.
Tip 1: Keep Your Home Clean And Tidy:
De-cluttering your house will give spiders only fewer places to hide. Keeping your floors clean, wiping down the surfaces, dusting and vacuuming regularly will keep the spiders away. Also, keep your food sealed to prevent the venture of other pests which in turn attract spiders.
Tip 2: Keep Your Home Dry:
Spiders are usually found in bathroom, basements and kitchens where there is lots of moisture. Keeping these areas dry and clean can prevent them from sneaking inside.
Tip 3: Seal The Gaps In Doors And Windows:
Don’t let spiders get into your home. Seal any cracks, holes and gaps in windows, floors and walls to prevent these creatures from getting inside. Also, cover your vents with a fine mesh and repair tore window screens to prohibit their entry.
Tip 4: Remove Vegetation Surrounding Your Home:
Spiders love to hide under rocks, wood piles, shrubs, plants, etc. If the weather becomes cooler, they start to move inside your home. Removing plants from the perimeter of your home make it difficult for them to venture into your property.
Tip 5: Apply Residual Pesticides:
Spray pesticides along the cracks and corners of your home. Also, apply them in all areas where you suspect their presence. In order for the insecticide to have an effect on the spiders, make sure you use sprays that are designed for spider control.
Tip 6: Hire The Pest Control Company:
If you have a large number of spiders in your home, you may want to contact a pest control company. Some spiders are poisonous, so it is best to leave it to the hands of the professionals. They know how to treat a spider infestation and chuck them out of your home.
