Spiders are one of the most well-known and incredible creatures on earth. While spiders do tend to have a negative stigma, sometimes they are seen in a heroic light. For example, they are seen in the Marvel movie Spiderman. In real life, they also help to get rid of some other pests or bugs – as they prey upon them as food. Although not everyone is a spider lover, we understand you may not want these creatures inside of your home.
Globally, there are more than 35,000 spider species, but only about 27 species are poisonous, which can cause severe injuries and even death to humans. Therefore, it is essential that you know how to prevent spider infestation. If you want to stay safe or you just want to get rid of annoying spider webs at home, then follow the tips and prevention below.
Get rid of sheltering sites – Spiders usually enter your home and other places looking for shelter. They can come through cracks and gaps or poorly screened windows. Therefore, you must cover holes and make sure your window screens and doors are properly closed all the time.
Vacuum Regularly – Keeping your home clean is always the best prevention against pests, and that includes spiders too. Focus on vacuuming shelter sites like cupboards, behind large furniture and other common sheltering sites of spiders.
Proper Lighting – You can get rid of spiders by making sure that you let a significant amount of light in your house. Spiders often are attracted to darker areas.
Remove webs – If you see a web without spiders, make sure to remove them! This makes it more difficult for spiders to be able to get back to their webs.
These are some of the useful tips that you can use to prevent and get rid of spiders in your home. If you are removing a spider on your own, remember to wear thick rubber gloves when eradicating spiders because you can minimize your risk of being bitten when you wear gloves.
