How To Keep Spiders Out Of Your Sioux Falls Home

January 30, 2022 - Spiders

There are many different kinds of scary and venomous spiders that can potentially invade your home and put you and your family in danger, but at the same time, there are many more spiders in the area that are relatively harmless. Despite this, most spiders are still not wanted in your home because they are a nuisance and can potentially pose dangers. Keep unwanted spiders away from your home and family for good with the best pest control in Sioux Falls, Olson’s Pest Technicians.

Why Spiders Like To Hang Out In Your Home

There are many different kinds of spiders that can come onto your property and create problems, but most of the common household spiders that you will find are actually harmless. If they are not coming into your home to bite you, though, what are they doing there? The reason these different kinds of spiders are hanging out in your home is that it offers them food, water, and shelter.

All throughout the year but especially in the winter months, spiders can find all sorts of shelter under trees and in barns and garages, but they can also find this in your home. Sometimes they will make their way into your home because of this, but other times they also may go into your home because their food, insects, are in your home. Wherever their food goes, they go, and it just so happens to be your home.

The Problem With Spiders In Your Home

The major problem that comes from these different common household spiders coming into your home is that it means you have a greater pest problem. If you did not have insects that spiders prey on in your home or places for the spiders to hide safely, then they would not be in your home.

Whether you have spiders everywhere or have spotted just a few, it overall means that your home is susceptible to other, more dangerous, pests, and some of those spiders in your home might be dangerous as well. When you have spiders everywhere in your home, your house has enough food to sustain them. Additionally, some of these spiders could be venomous spiders that pose significant dangers to you and your family.

In Sioux Falls, most of the spiders that you will find will be harmless, but you can also have dangerous spiders like black and brown widows and brown recluses. All spiders in your home should be avoided because it can be hard to tell if they are dangerous from a distance. The best thing that you can do if you have these pests in your home is to contact the professionals at Olson’s Pest Technicians. The next best thing that you can do is stop the spiders from coming into your home in the first place.

Six Simple And Effective Spider Prevention Tips

The best way to get rid of spiders is to not even have them in your home in the first place. The best way this is done is by taking preventive measures such as:

  1. Keep your house clean and clutter-free to remove places where they can hide.
  2. Close cracks and holes in your walls with silicone-based caulk.
  3. Limit lights around your home as this can attract insects and in turn attract spiders.
  4. Clean up regularly to remove crumbs and dead insects around doorways.
  5. Keep your yard clean and limit overgrowth and dead vegetation.
