The Role Spiders Play In Our Ecosystem

Before we look at why spiders get into your home, it is important to consider the ecosystem around your home and the unique role spiders play in that ecosystem. We're sometimes asked, "How do I get rid of spiders outside?" Our answer is that the goal is not to get rid of spiders completely but, instead, to manage the spider around your home. You have lots of living things that crawl on your plants, creep along the ground, and explore your walls. Spiders play an important role outdoors as they help with pest control. They are efficient at catching many of the insects and bugs that pester you, both indoors and out. You definitely want to let them continue to do their job. 

The job of your pest management company is to consider the different kinds of spiders you have around your home. We'll target the spiders that make webs on your exterior, in your landscaping, and under exterior structures. You don't need those ugly webs around. We'll also deal with the worst spiders, like the black widow. The last thing you need is a dangerous spider bite. But we'll leave the other spiders alone and allow them to assist us with your pest control.

While spiders in Roseville are helpful outdoors, you don't need them in your home. A pest management company works hard to manage pests outdoors and make your home as much of a pest-free environment as possible. But, at the onset of services, we'll start by addressing indoor spiders because some household spiders never step foot outdoors. They hatch indoors, mate indoors, lay eggs indoors, and the cycle begins again.

How do we do it? How do we get rid of indoor spiders and keep more spiders from getting into your home? We use science. Let's take a look at how the science of entomology prevents indoor spider problems.       

How And Why Spiders Find Their Way Into Our Homes

There are a variety of spiders that live inside and around your home. While each is unique in its own way, they all share common reasons for getting into Roseville homes. Here are some of those reasons, along with insights into how your technician will use this knowledge to manage spiders.

Openings: A spider gets into your home because it can. They don't chew holes or tunnel through wood like other pests. A spider can only get into your home if you let it. Your technicians understand this. We know common entry points and vulnerabilities. We'll check these areas and let you know if we see trouble spots. For certain common entry points, we seal them with professional-grade materials to block these routes.

Food: Spiders enter your home because they have a reason to be near your home. They live where food is present. That is why you find them creating webs around trash receptacles and light fixtures. Insects are attracted to these areas, and spiders are attracted to insects. Your technician understands the common areas where spiders are found and uses control materials to manage the pests spiders feed on. When spiders come near your home, they won't find a reason to create a web near your trash.

Webs: Spiders have a higher chance of getting into your home when they live nearby. Most spiders create webs. These webs are used to catch food. One way we deter spiders from making webs is to remove the food. Another way is to remove webs and wipe down surfaces. Spiders are inclined to create their webs in safe spots. The presence of dust and other webs sends a signal that it is okay to make webs. We help you avoid giving spiders the wrong idea. 

Clutter: Another place spiders live is in yard clutter. Whether a spider creates a web or simply hides in a hole, objects near your exterior can invite spiders to live nearby, making them more likely to enter your home. They'll hide in man-made objects, like toys, junk piles, and construction materials. They'll also hide in organic objects, such as stacked branches, campfire wood, leaves, and stones. If a spider can find a void large enough, it can create a temporary home. Your technician will evaluate the conditions, treat key areas, and provide advice about your pest control. 

Eggs: The more spiders you have near your home, the greater the chance of an infestation. A single egg sac can have hundreds of spider eggs in it. When those eggs hatch, the spiderlings can find their way indoors as they search for food. When we remove spider webs, we also remove egg sacs and destroy them. Routinely doing this significantly reduces spider activity near your exterior walls. 

These are just some of the ways we consider the behavior patterns and mating habits of these pests to provide effective spider management. It is a scientific and layered approach that gets results with the least amount of control materials.

Now that you know a bit about how and why spiders enter your home, let's turn our attention to the spiders already on the inside. There is a reason you have spiders in your home. We'll zero in on one of the points we've already covered.

A Spider Infestation Often Indicates A Bigger Problem

Spiders are often an indication that a home has other pest problems. If you don't think you have a pest infestation, but you see spider webs start to appear, you may want to perform an inspection and take a closer look or call someone who can do this for you. It is likely that you have pests that are hiding from view. As we pointed out, spiders want to live where food is found. If they're making webs, there is likely a reason.

Since spiders live where the food is, you can have an impact on the spiders in your home by dealing with their food source. It is hard to do this directly because pests live inside your walls, floors, and other hiding places. But you can address the food or moisture those insects need. For example, flies breed in trash receptacles. It is hard for them to live in a home where trash is stored in covered containers and removed at least once every four days. 

Food: A clean home is resistant to pest problems. When pests go back outside, the spiders will go back outside with them. Keep counters and floors clean. Wipe down shelves and cabinets. Do dishes as you go. Put dog and cat food down only during determined mealtimes. Keep food covered when sitting on the counter. Steps like these can deter pests, thereby deterring spiders.

Moisture: Some insects need humidity to survive. They won't do well in a home that has humidity control. Sometimes installing a dehumidifier is all that is needed to address pests. Along with humidity, consider water sources. A dripping faucet will provide a source of drinking water for insects and bugs.

Controlling food and moisture will get you most of the way. When combined with exclusion work, you can naturally manage pests and drive them out of your home. When more control is needed, it is best to contact a licensed pest management professional. It is essential to select products that are appropriate for the pests in your home and appropriately deployed to ensure efficacy and safety.
