4 Easy Ways To Keep Spiders Away From Your Home
While most spiders pose little threat to humans and can be a great help in the garden, their presence is often seen as a nuisance for homeowners. Spiders will look for warm, sheltered areas to make their nests in the spring and summer months. Allowing the spider population to go uncontrolled on your property could have serious consequences, especially if they make their way into your house.
The following techniques are four easy ways to keep spiders away from your home. These suggestions should be used in conjunction with one another, if possible, for the best results.
1 – Remove Potential Shelter Areas & Clean Regularly
Spiders will make a shelter out of whatever is available, including leaves, woodpiles, garden features, fountains, and generally messy areas. They may also make their nests in the shrubs and bushes near your home. Removing the debris and organic materials from your yard will be a significant first step to knocking down the overall spider population. Keeping a regular cleaning schedule of permanent yard fixtures can also help reduce the amount of webs around your property. Fewer webs inevitably mean fewer spiders in your yard.
2 – Keep Other Pests Away From Your Yard
Spiders feed on other insects. Homes with active ant, cockroach, flea, or stinging insect populations are more susceptible to having a large spider population since spiders will be attracted to the other pests in your yard. Do your best to keep other insects away, or hire Atlanta Environmental Pest Services to do the job for you!
3 – Close Your Windows At Night
This may seem like a no-brainer, but keeping your windows closed and well-sealed at night will also help keep spiders away from your home. Spiders are mostly nocturnal insects. Keeping your windows open at night will encourage them to crawl inside in search of food and shelter.
