Tips on Spider Prevention

By | Pests, Spiders | No Comments

To help prevent spider nesting around your house:

  • Keep firewood and logs away from the home.
  • Clean up leaves and other organic debris from around your yard.
  • Trim back any trees and shrubs that contact the home.
  • Caulk/Seal cracks and gaps in the home’s structure, foundations, doors and windows.
  • Indoors, spiders can be prevented by frequent vacuuming and sweeping of corners, closets, basements and other out-of-the-way places.
  • When vacuuming, sweeping or otherwise removing webs, be sure that all egg sacs are captured as well to prevent new spiders.
  • Reduce or eliminate piles of papers, boxes, bags, and other clutter to reduce potential harborage areas.
