Spider Season Is Here


Autumn officially marks the start of the spider mating season, meaning that the spiders will seek shelter in a dry place to reside for giving birth. Thus, more spiders than usual are going to try to get into your house and spawn more eight-legged heathens that you have to throw a shoe at. This also results in more spiderwebs looming in the most inconvenient places. If you don’t want to blow a hole in your wall from hitting a spider with a Holy Bible, you may want to keep these arthropods out of your home. Here’s how:

Spiders love dark, damp, and cluttered spaces to call home; that’s why basements have so many spiders. Keep everything organized and well cleaned to avoid unwanted wall crawlers. Letting more natural light in to your home may also deter spiders since spiders prefer dark places. If you want to ensure that your home is spider free, use pesticides to ensure no living being in a 5-mile radius want to go near your front door.
