Do you regularly find pests crawling or flying around your living areas? Seeing these small invaders indoors could mean that your home’s exterior is not properly sealed. It could also mean that spiders will invade to hunt these pests down. Although the thought of having fewer pests indoors might seem good, the tradeoff of having spiders is not much of a win. Here are some things you should know about spiders in Queen Creek and what methods work best to get and keep them out of homes.

Signs Of A Spider Infestation In Your Queen Creek Home

Two questions we are regularly asked are; how do spiders get in the house and what is the best method for identifying house spiders? Spiders invade area homes by crawling through gaps, cracks, and other openings found around windows and doors, and in exterior walls and foundational blocks. When these pests come indoors, the best method for identifying house spiders is by seeing them. The next best way is to look for their nests. If neither of these clues is present, it doesn’t mean your home isn’t infested. It means these pests are doing a good job of hiding and are probably in places where you can’t see them like in wall voids, storage rooms, and in other less traveled or hard-to-reach areas.

Is It Dangerous To Have Spider Webs In My Queen Creek Home?

There are many types of spiders that live here in Queen Creek that weave webs. Although incredibly annoying, these webs, by themselves, are not dangerous. The spiders that are on or near them, however, can be. One dangerous spider that weaves webs in our area is the black widow. This larger arachnid is black and has a bulbous abdomen with a red hourglass mark on its underside. A bite from one of these pests is incredibly painful and comes with a lot of uncomfortable symptoms. If you suspect you have been bitten by a black widow, seek medical attention immediately to reduce your risk of long-lasting medical issues.

What Is The Best Spider Repellent In Queen Creek?

There are many different products that exist that kill local spiders. These sprays and repellents are not, however, effective options to keep these pests out of your living areas. Interestingly enough, natural DIY tips and tricks are a better protective strategy to keep spiders and the pests they hunt out of your home. Here are a few we recommend.

  • Use some silicone caulk to fill in holes, gaps, and cracks in your home’s exterior foundation.
  • Make sure all of your weatherstripping, door sweeps, and screens are present and in good working condition.
  • Turn off exterior lights after it gets dark.
  • Close unscreened windows and doors when they are not being used.
  • Address moisture issues in and around your home.
  • Organize storage areas and keep your home as clean and tidy as possible.
