3 Tips for Preventing Spiders in Your Home this Winter

Winter may do wonders for getting rid of many Missouri pests. However, it's also a time when other pests find their way into our homes to hide from the cold. Unfortunately, spiders are one of those pests. While spiders may not do as much damage as some pests (like termites), we do not like seeing them in our homes. Especially when that spider is dangerous, such as brown recluses or black widows, whose bites can cause severe reactions. Best Pest Control wants to help you avoid running across a spider in your home this winter. Here are a few tips to help you keep spiders out of your home.

Prevent Spiders In Your Home

The best way to prevent spiders from getting into your home is to make sure you don't have an environment that attracts them. Spiders will most likely make their homes outside in plants, piles of leaves or wood or undisturbed places like old tires or buckets. When you have these items next to your home, it makes it easier for them to wander inside. If you have these items on your property, make sure to give them some distance between your home to make it less likely for the spider to find its way inside. In addition, be sure to identify and seal any possible points of entry to keep spiders out. This could involve sealing a small hole or crack with caulk or make sure doors and windows close tightly without any gaps. A professional Lake of the Ozarks pest control company can help you identify any points of entrance if you need help.

Get Rid Of Food Source & Shelter

Making sure you keep your home clean is generally a good way to decrease the number of pests in your home. In the case of spiders, not only will a clean home provide fewer places for the spiders to hide, but it will also make it less likely that insects will be around for spiders to eat. Without a reliable food source and fewer hiding spots, it will be harder for spiders to stay. Many web-building spiders will make their home high up in the corners. Take a look around your home and clean up any webs you spot with a vacuum cleaner or extending duster.
