No one wants a house infested with creepy spiders crawling around, let alone all of the nasty webs they create in the corners. And what about when they drop down and dangle in front of your face? And some of these spiders can even bite!
Well, now that the weather is cooling down, spiders will be pushed into human residences to seek warmth, food, and shelter. We don’t have to coexist with them or any other pests that plague our homes throughout the year. Spiders near and far are sneaking into our South Portland homes through tiny cracks and crevices that they find in our foundations and exterior walls. They can also squeeze in through gaps around window and door frames, broken screens, vents, and around utility wires, cables, and plumbing. They probably want access to your home because it contains insect pests that are their main food source.
So, if walking into cobwebs and facing dangling spiders on a regular basis is not your thing, you may want to follow a few simple tips on how to prevent spiders from getting into your home. Try the following tips:
- Seal off all entry points, including, foundations, exterior walls, basements, attics, windows, doors, and utility entrances
- Make sure all of your screens, vents, and chimney caps are in place and in good repair
- Sweep and vacuum cobwebs on a regular basis
- Keep your home tidy and free of clutter and debris
