Spiders can infest a home without any warning. They can sneak into the smallest of areas, lay their eggs, and before you know it, you have a spider problem.
While spiders don’t spread disease, they are definitely a nuisance in homes and business. Oftentimes, spiders evoke more psychological damage than physical. Some people even have an irrational fear of spiders, known as arachnophobia.
If you believe that you have an issue with spiders in your home or business, it’s important to contact a professional. Champion Pest and Lawn is your option. Call us to learn more about how to identify the signs of spiders and how our team can help.
How to Identify a Spider Infestation
Spiders often lurk in dark, secluded areas, both in your home and garden. To spot the signs of spiders, you can look for spider webs, which are often a sign that you have an issue.
Some spiders live in burrows or the crevices of your home. They are often attracted to moist environments, like your basement, while other spider species can be found in places like your attic, the crevice where your wall and ceiling meet, and closets.
Spiders usually appear in the fall, when temperatures take a dip. If you think you have an issue with spiders in your house or business, our team can inspect your home and come up with a customized plan for your individual situation.
How to Get Rid of Spiders
There are a few steps that you can take to prevent spider problems in your home. It’s important to vacuum regularly, remove noticeable webs, and fill in gaps in walls and under doors to deter entry.
While homeowners often try DIY spider control products, like sprays and repellents, they don’t often solve the problem.
Removing a Scorpion Infestation
Scorpions are predators that feed primarily on other insects. Keeping the insect population in general down around your home is one way to keep scorpions away. Limiting their food supply will limit the chances that they'll invade your home. Scorpions tend to be solitary, but an environment that's attractive to them will sometimes attract multiple individuals. Female scorpions also carry their young around on their backs until they mature, and so if the timing is right you may find a situation where you have up to 25 nearly adult scorpions running around your home.
Scorpions are not insects, they're arthropods, so they're kind of like dangerous land lobsters. But because they are not insects, many treatments designed to work on insects will be ineffective against scorpions. Because of the danger of scorpion bites, getting professional pest control if you see scorpions in your home is usually a good idea.
