How To Get Rid Of Spiders
There are 3 categories of spiders: Web-weaving, active-hunting, and passive-hunting spiders. Each of them live very different lives. Therefore there are unique treatment techniques used for each one. For example, web-weaving spiders rarely contact the ground. Spraying surfaces for these spiders have minimal effect since their feet are elevated on their web.
- Vacuuming easily destroys their soft bodies and webs.
- The use of a Webster Duster improves the aesthetic appearance of a home by removing spider webs. Increase effectiveness of your sprays by removing webs prior to treatment.
- Seal gaps under siding, and around basement windows. Replace damaged screens to vents around your home. Check your window air conditioner units for gaps.
- Sticky traps can be strategically placed for passive and active-hunting spiders. Since these guys are so reclusive it can be tricky to find them. Let them come to you.
- Trim back vegetation from around the home. This creates a barrier between the spiders’ natural habitat and your home. A lot of the spiders that find their way indoors come from the shrubs and vines planted along the foundation.
- Remove clutter inside and around the exterior foundation. Minimal hiding places equals minimal spiders.
- Replace standard exterior light bulbs with yellow bug light bulbs. This will stop attracting the flying insects that spiders feed on.
- Use motion detectors on exterior security lights instead of leaving them on constantly at night-time.
- Outside lights are not the only lights that attract spiders. Close your blinds at night and turn off lights when the room is not occupied.
- Spiders in basements often feed on potato bugs. Try controlling them instead of just spraying for the spiders. There are a lot of good natural control options for potato bugs.
