What Causes Spider Infestations?
When spiders enter a home, they are generally seeking food and shelter. Know what they like to eat and where they like to nest and you can prevent infestations.
- Easy points of entry. Every pest needs an entry point into your home and if you make it very easy by having multiple cracks, poorly sealed doors and windows, loose tiles and vents for example, it’s likely you could get a spider infestation. Seal up these points if you find them, to make it harder for pests to enter.
- Clutter and unused areas. Spiders generally like to live undisturbed by humans and favour unused rooms or areas with clutter they can hide in. Try to keep unused rooms tidied and vacuumed if possible, to ward of spiders spinning their webs and multiplying.
- Ample food sources like other bugs. If you already have another insect infestation in your home, it’s likely spiders will be attracted in the hope of scoring a meal.
- Plants, debris and compost piles. Spiders love to hang out in and around plants, debris and compost. Keep these items away from the home, to give spiders less areas to nest.
- Waterside homes. While you can’t move your home if you live by the water, be aware bugs are attracted to water so spiders will be attracted also.
- Never clearing webs and egg sacs. When you notice spider webs, it’s a good idea to clear them away frequently so your homes spider population isn’t left to grow.
