Bugs are bugs to most people and anything that is considered a bug is put in the same category as all the others.
Today I will go over how you can get rid of spiders in your home. There is some key information I want to give you on how to go about this process so sit back relax and let it soak in.
How To Get Rid Of Spiders In Your Home
Spiders are like roaches they don’t like to be seen and you will usually find them before they find you.
Spiders, unlike roaches, though do not eat crumbs or other things you have laying around your house. In fact, they eat other bugs and maybe even a roach if it could get it caught on its web.
Spiders will generally eat any bug that flies, crawls or is placed on their web. I have never heard or seen a spider eating anything other than bugs.
Do Spiders Bite or Sting?
Yes and if you’re on the receiving end depending on the type of spider that did it. You could be hospitalized or worse.
Spiders aren’t aggressive as in they don’t go looking for trouble. But if you make them feel threatened they will defend themselves.
Most spider bites don’t happen when you’re awake and aware of what’s going on. Unless you are walking through a wooded area or in a cluttered space like a garage or storage building.
Spider bites tend to happen while we are asleep and it’s not because the spider is looking to kill you in your sleep. But it goes back to being out of sight. Once everyone in the house is sleep and everything is calm and settled. The spider will drop down from the roof or anything that’s high up and look for food or a new place to build a web.
When we are sleep we don’t really feel anything or know what’s going on. So it’s really easy to see how a spider bite will go unnoticed until you wake up and just so happen to see an ugly or swollen bite or sting mark on your skin.
One of two things happened to make the spider attack.
1. You maybe moved or tried to swipe at what you may thought was a tickling sensation on your body. This made the spider feel treated and it responded by defending itself.
2. You rolled over onto the spider. This is the most common of all spider bites or stings.
If you wake up with bite marks you’ve either been bitten by a spider or you have bed bugs.
Bed bugs also attract spiders because they eat them.
What Type Of Spiders Are Most Common In Your Home
Well, this varies on your location and type of house you live in.
Spiders love to be in high areas and out the way.
If you stay in an apartment or anything alike your chances of having spiders are way lower than someone who stays near a wooded area or has a really big house.
The most common types are
Grand Daddy Long Legs
Hobo Spider – Good Luck With That Hospital Bill
Brown Recluse – See You On The Other Side
Black Widow – Bad News If One Bites You
Where Do Spiders Like To Build Their Webs
In high areas with a good amount of lighting. Lights attract flying insects and they can’t see the web because of the brightness of the light. Making it easy money for the spider.
They will also build a web in any area that is out of the way and has a nice source of food. Spiders in your home also indicates that you have other bug issues going on. Which is why the spider is there in the first place to eat.
Places like a corner, behind anything that hasn’t been moved in a while, cluttered or junky areas make prime places for spiders to set up shop. The junk an clutter will at act other bugs and the spider knows this so they build their web and wait.
Underneath furniture and above your cabinets in your kitchen are also hot spots for spiders.
Any sea that has been vacant for a long time will also make a good home for spiders. Like an attic or basement.
You’re hardly ever there you’re most likely walking around the main parts of the house. So these areas are a lot less risky for the spiders and overtime if not handle quickly you will have a nest and a spider’s nest holds thousands if not millions of spiders. You do not want that on your hands trust me.
How To Get The Spiders Out Of Your Home
This is a quick fix, unlike other bug issues. To keep your home clear of spiders is to simply keep it clean. Routinely dust and clean all the corners and underneath things that you normally don’t. Also actively check your basement or attic for anything trying to make a home in your home.
Spiders will not stay anywhere where there is no food and most of the time it’s only one per web. Grand Daddy Long Legs don’t build webs they kind of just free roam the land. They are harmless and should be the least of your worries in the spider kingdom. But they are still spiders so they get thrown in with the rest of them.
Dust and clean weekly or daily it’s up to you. But as long as your house is clean and you’re constantly destroying the spider’s web. It’ll go elsewhere if you don’t kill it in the process.
For nests, you may want to invest in a bug bomb or flamethrower. A bug bomb will work for one or two. But if you have 5 or more nests in your home it’s time to invest in a flamethrower and just let it burn like that one R&B singer said.
There you have it. Quick and easy all jokes aside don’t burn your house down if you think you have multiple spider nests in your home. Instead, seek professional help if you still want to continue living there. If not moving is a very legit option.
Professional help is expensive and so is moving so go with whatever is more feasible for you.
