How to Prevent Spiders from Invading Your Home

Stop sneaky spiders from infiltrating your house

Fall is right around the corner and while we might be ready for cooler weather so are common house spiders, which is why they invade homes this time of year. Prevent intrusive spiders this fall in your home by following helpful tips from PURCOR. From knowing common house spiders, where spiders hide, and why they invade during the fall, PURCOR provides tips and preventative spider control solutions

Common House Spiders

The common spiders you will spot in your home are typically an inch to a couple of inches long and are brown colored. They do not cause much harm to you and your family as they are more of just a nuisance—because, after all, no one really wants to live alongside any type of spider. 

Why Do Spiders Come Out in the Fall?

You might be wondering: can spiders survive in the cold? Generally, house spiders have a tough time in cold temperatures, which is why they come into your home in the fall before it is freezing outdoors. When the temperature becomes cooler spiders seek spots in your home to make their webs in a safe place. Also, this is the time of year that spiders are on the lookout for a partner and why spiders come out in the fall. Female spiders can hatch around 250 eggs, which can be a nightmare for a homeowner to deal with. 

Where Do Spiders Hide in Your Home?

On the hunt for a safe spot with water and food, spiders can be found throughout your house. Spiders hide mainly in areas that are dark and typically damp. Attics, basements, closets, garages, and under furniture, are common places spiders hide. 

Prevent Spiders with a Clean House 

The best way you can prevent spiders in your house is by being consistent with your cleaning. Spiders are usually found in spots that you don’t typically think of on your day-to-day, but that is why it is important to clean those spots as frequently as possible. Take action by cleaning those dark corners and cluttered closets to avoid a new family of spiders making themselves at home.
