Spiders and their webs can be an eyesore. Although they aren’t as destructive as other pests, they can still be a nuisance and even dangerous. Some spider species like the Black Widow and Brown Recluse are venomous, and their bites can lead to severe reactions, especially in children, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems. It’s therefore essential to have the spiders exterminated from your home as soon as possible for your peace of mind.

Get rid of the attractors
Spiders, like humans, need food, water and shelter to survive. If your home provides one or more of these needs, then they are likely going to crawl their way inside. In addition to clothes and other spiders, spiders feed on household pests like houseflies, fleas, cockroaches, fruit flies and so on. Some spider species also need water to survive and will leave off of any stagnant water in your home. Above all, spider loves darker areas, like basements and attics, and will likely hide in such spaces when they invade your home. So, the best thing to do is make your home unattractive to these spiders by getting rid of their food and water sources and regularly cleaning the hard to reach areas where they are likely to hide.
Prevent them from getting in the first place
One of the best ways of preventing spiders from entering your home is by ensuring your environment doesn’t encourage their activity. Spiders often make their webs outside in piles of wood or leaves, in plats or dark, undisturbed areas like buckets or old tires. So you want to have some good distance between your house and these things to lower the chances of the spider crawling inside. You can also inspect and seal any entry points, like cracks, crevices, holes, broken windows, that may allow the spider to get it. But before you seal these openings, it’s advisable to clean up and use spider repellents to scare the spiders away first.
Punch their lights out
Some insects love the light, and spiders love insects – so it makes sense that if you want to eliminate the spiders, you should reconsider the way you light your house. Start by minimizing the amount of outdoor lighting to reduce the number of bugs and insects attracted to your home. You can do this by replacing the current lighting with yellow lights or sodium vapor lights which are less appealing to bugs.
