Spiders, like most pests who invade Virginia Beach homes, are often seeking both food and shelter. However, the food that they’re looking for and the places where they shelter can be quite different from other common pests. Spider pest control starts with knowing what spiders like to eat, how they find entry points to the home, and where they nest, which will help you spot some of the most common causes of spider infestations.
Causes of Spider infestations
Spider infestations have one simple cause—overpopulation. Unlike what most people think, indoor spiders do not come from outside in the end of summer. Spiders are always all around us. If the habitat is favorable, their population will boom.
Arachnids love to hide in dry, warm places such as boxes, corners, the short distance between furniture and walls, and window frames. There they spin webs and hunt insects. Increase in their population may be related to infestation by other pests. Abundant food can easily cause spiders to thrive in your home or office.Prevention is the best bet in controlling a spider infestation.
Signs of a spider infestation are not always obvious. You need to be proactive at inspecting your own property and staying aware of the changes within it. You also need to take steps to keep the pests out in the first place, such as by keeping your home free of clutter and keeping it well-maintained. A basic cleaning routine will go a long way toward keeping out most unwanted guests
Pest Control Inspection for Spiders
After your Universal Pest & Termite technician has properly identified the species of spider infesting the property, he or she will recommend a treatment solution designed to effectively control that type of spider. Different spider species call for different treatment methods. For most spider issues, Universal Pest will recommend non-chemical treatments and advise customers on what they can do to make their indoor environments less attractive to spiders.
