Among all the types of common pests that can be a problem in your home, spiders are the most feared. While they have a more significant amount of beneficial properties, they can still pose a threat to young children or those with a phobia of spiders. There are methods that are more successful than others in regards to pest control. Read on to learn more.
There are some good news with controlling the spider population in your home. Chances are, if you see one spider there’s a slim chance that more are with it. Spiders are loners and often prefer to hunt alone and they don’t like to share their food. Most likely, you can just exterminate the spider with your weapon of choice. If you start to see a pattern or a frequent presence, consider setting down a glue trap by where you are finding them. This will give you an idea of where they are coming from. Is there a nearby door or wall socket that could be their entry point. You can seal off the cracks and therefore stop the problem.
Pick dark areas that don’t receive a lot of traffic such as under couches or behind where a piece of furniture connects with the wall. A few strategically placed traps in a room could point you to the source of the problem. Glue traps or contact killing are the most effective methods of extermination for spiders. Their abdomen does not touch the ground and applying or spraying pesticides will have little effect on them.
Although spiders can be intimidating, they do not pose any health threats to your family and are not damaging to your home. Your home may be a little dusty with all of the cobwebs but that is an easy fix. Most of the spiders you see are not dangerous or venomous. Therefore, you can feel safe with self extermination methods. If you feel as though it may be a dangerous species such as a black widow spider or a brown recluse, call a professional exterminator to come in and take a look at the problem. They will be able to determine the species and let you know the best course of action.
