When the weather outside is chilly in El Dorado Hills, spiders prefer to be inside, just like you. As good as spiders are for natural pest control, it doesn’t mean that you want to share your home with them. During cooler months, you may need spider pest control.
The cold weather drives most pests either into hibernation or to a warmer, more comfortable space. The inside of your house works well for spiders looking to get through cooler months. Not only are they protected from the cold, but the chances are you’ve supplied them with a decent food supply.
Spiders don’t try to become intimately acquainted with us. They prefer secluded, undisturbed places, such as your garage, basement, or attic to set up their web and wait for their next meal. Confrontations occur when we go into those occasionally used places, digging for a holiday decorations box or looking for donations.
Spider Health Hazards
Most species of spiders that we encounter are not a direct threat to us. They’re either too small to successfully bite us, or their venom does not affect humans. However, there are those spiders, such as Black Widow Spiders, that can be extremely dangerous to people. In particular, the very young and the slightly more elderly.
Spiders additionally can cause food contamination if allowed to nest in food storage areas. The bits and pieces of their prey can drop into food and onto food preparation surfaces. Though there is little research on the bacterial cleanliness of spider feces, their prey, such as flies, carry a number of bacteria.
Spiders Pest Control
As with any pest control, being proactive with pest control starts with you. Effective spiders pest control will happen long-term through regular pest control service from Pro Active Pest Control. In the meantime, there are several simple actions you can take to help reduce the spider presence in your home or business.
1. Seal cracks and crevices both outside your home and around access points, such as a garage door. Walk the perimeter of your home being particularly mindful of the space around doors, windows, and vents.
2. Clear clutter from garages and attics. Leaving portions of your home inaccessible and untouched leaves a perfect home for many pests, including spiders. Embrace regular cleaning on garages, basements, and attics.
3. Be aware of what you bring inside from the outdoors. A box of lights that has been sitting in your attic since last year may have picked up a border or two. Carefully open and inspect boxes and bags outside while wearing long sleeves and gloves.
