Most spiders do not have fangs large enough to pierce our skin. Spiders hang around, or run around, hunting down bothersome insects. Yet they are not often tolerated inside of a home; even the teeny tiny ones. You may think you have a brown recluse spider problem. There is a 1 in 8000 chance that an Ohio resident has a brown recluse spider in their home.
Spiders have soft bodies and are easy destroyed by hand, book or newspaper. Vacuums help too. Gaps around window air conditioners allow them to enter the living space. They sneak in around utility holes in the foundation, gaps around basement windows, cracks in the foundation or underneath the bottom lip of siding. For ongoing issues, seal your house. Spiders outside, especially by the lake can be minimized by pulling the curtains at night so your lights do not attract nocturnal flying insects. Using yellow bug lights, or motion detector lights outside help too.
