How To Deal With Spiders In Your House

Environmental Blog

Most people aren't real thrilled when they are walking around their house and see a spider. In fact, some of those people may make an undignified sound when they see a spider, especially if it's a big spider. If you see a spider in your house and you are one of those people who aren't really happy then you are going to want to figure out where they are coming from and how to get rid of them. 

Hidden Dark Nooks and Crannies

While some spiders like damp areas like your cellar and others like dry areas like the vents in your home, there is one thing that all spiders like. They like the nice dark areas of your house. That means they like areas like any crawl spaces, attics, and ductwork. One place where they are very visible is up in the highest corners of your room. Those corners tend to be darker than other visible areas of your house. 

Creepy Crawlies

While nice dark crannies are going to attract spiders because they make the ideal home for the spiders, that's not the only thing that is going to make the spiders come into your house. They are also going to come in and stay in for a steady food source. Most spiders that you are going to see in your house eat insects. No matter how clean you keep your house, there are going to be creepy crawlies in your attic or cellar. The better the food source, the more spiders you are going to have. 

Spider Spray

One thing you can do to get rid of them is to make up some spider spray. Get a spray bottle full of water, add a few drops of an essential oil like lemon or peppermint, and a few drops of dish soap. You can spray it anywhere you see spiders. You can spray it on any webs and cobwebs you see, but it's a better idea to vacuum them up so the spiders can't continue to use them. 

Professional Help

You can always turn to a professional for help. An exterminator (like those at Environmental Services Pest Control) will help you deal with the problem. They will find places where the spiders are coming in. They will also help to control the spiders by spraying around the outside of your house for spiders and for insects. Creating a barrier on the outside of your house is a good way to keep spiders and their food source out of your house. 

If you aren't thrilled by spiders, you want to know where they are hiding in your house. You also want to know the best way to get rid of them and keep them from coming back.
