How To Keep Spiders Out Of Your Daphne Home
January 20, 2022
Spider-Man may be a fun movie to watch, but spiders themselves are nowhere near as fun, especially if they invade your home and annoy you and your family. There are about 3,000 different spider species throughout North America, so they can be incredibly common, but they don’t have to be. You can learn how to keep them away from your home and know who can help you get rid of them when they’re infesting your Daphne home.
Which Spiders Are Good And Which Are Bad
With such a wide variety of spider species, you might think that more of them are scary spiders that are dangerous. Thankfully this is not the case. The majority of spiders are very harmless but still nuisances. In Daphne, the types of spiders you may find are:
- Black widows
- Brown widows
- Wolf spiders
- Jumping spiders
- Cellar spiders
The only two that have venom potent enough to cause health problems are the black and brown widows. Even if your home does not have dangerous spiders, you probably still don’t want them around. For many homes, they are still not a welcome sight.
Why are spiders in your home? The reason spiders may have found their way into your yard, or even your home all comes down to their necessities to live: food and shelter. Spider’s go wherever there are insects to eat, and they also choose places where they are safe from other predators and the natural elements. This means that you will find them in:
- Under furniture
- Wall voids
- Basements and attics
- Garages and sheds
- Rock and woodpiles
- And gardens
Spiders can find a home anywhere, and the main reason they picked yours is that there are plenty of insects for them to eat. If spiders get into your home, they are probably following insects in there, and they still have plenty of moisture and food inside.
Some of the best things you can do to help ensure spiders stay away from your home are by taking care of the other insects and overall just clearing clutter and sweeping away webs. This discourages them from staying and finding food elsewhere.
Some other important spider prevention tips that can help keep your home and your family safe are regular inspections. If you see one spider or one insect, that likely means there are many more that will be just around the corner. It’s crucial to find the issue early so you can take care of it before it gets out of control.
Part of this inspection process includes removing spiderwebs, reducing insect activity, and closing off points where insects or spiders could come into your home. Outside of your home in your yard, something that you can also do that would be very helpful would be to cut any overgrown grass and keep it away from your exterior walls. This disincentivizes any nuisance pests from coming. Reducing moisture by not overwatering your grass will also help in keeping the pests away.
