Spiders often eat flies and other insects that plague our patios and indoor spaces. In doing so, spiders provide us with a pest control service. They are also very important to our ecosystem as well– spiders often feed on the most common species of insects in an area and in doing so prevent other species from becoming dominant. Spiders are immensely important to local ecosystems.
While the above paragraph is true, spiders can also become a serious problem that may require the need for a pest control company to take care of them. Spiders unfortunately become a pest fairly quickly, as they usually don’t leave a space after it has been sapped of all other pests or pest control issues.
Spiders can become a problem for many reasons. First of all, they usually leave messy, sticky, ugly-looking webs behind and make fresh ones often. This means that your room’s corners, your kitchen drawers and cabinets, and the veranda in your backyard could become unsightly and uncomfortable for guests (and you) to be around. The overwhelming presence of multiple spiders in the home is also setting up for your quality of life to be compromised. Nobody, even those who aren’t scared to death of spider, is comfortable knowing that one may be crawling on them or crawl out of something in sight at any given time. That opens the door to an anxious living situation. It is nice that spiders take care of those pesky flies and annoyingly loud crickets– but they have definitely overstayed their welcome when they begin to infest the place. But what should you do if spiders begin to take over your house? There are a few things you can do before calling a quality and professional pest control company like Varsity Termite and Pest Control.
If you’re spotting quite a few spiders around your home, there’s a chance that there are egg sacs around as well. Spiders often leave their egg sacs in very dark hidden corners or spots in any space. Try giving your home a vigorous vacuuming, including not just your carpets but your wall corners, baseboard, under sofas and other furniture, and other spaces where spiders may be hiding. Remove as many webs and tiny pockets of egg sacs as you can before disposing of your vacuum bag.
Sticky traps are another handy measure for getting rid of spiders. Try placing ten to twelve sticky traps, available online and at hardware stores, around your home. Sticky traps won’t completely solve your spider problem, but they will lure remaining spiders in your home to the spider-summoning formula in the tape and get rid of some of the remaining spiders in your residence.
