As temperatures continue to drop, pests are looking to move indoors! What pests should you be aware of this winter? One in particular, is the spider! They have finished their summer feast of an endless supply of bugs and are on the lookout for shelter. Although the majority of spiders found in Toronto homes are typically harmless, their infestations are not a pleasant sight. Sometimes if you have an abundance of spiders in your home, it may also indicate a high insect presence as well. These insects would typically be ants, woodlice or flies which are known as spider prey. Other infestation signs to look out for are, webs in dark corners or in moist environments, crevices and boxes. Spiders typically enter your home either through open windows/doors or through cracks and gaps in doorways/window frames. Be sure to keep your home clean, gaps sealed and doorways closed to prevent easy entry.
