Spider infestations can be unsettling for many people, as these eight-legged creatures evoke fear and discomfort. Even beyond that, though, they can cause damage to personal health and to property. It’s important to call in experienced Southington spider control pros from our office when the warning signs of infestation are spotted.
The Signs of a Spider Infestation
The most recognizable sign of a spider infestation is the presence of webs. Spiders use webs to catch prey and create shelters for themselves. A spider’s web can be found in corners, ceilings, windows, and other secluded areas of the home. While not all spiders spin visible webs, the sight of multiple webs in various locations is a strong indication of an infestation.
Another sign of a spider infestation is the discovery of egg sacs. Female spiders lay eggs inside protective sacs, which they attach to surfaces near their hiding spots. These sacs can be found in undisturbed areas such as wall crevices, attics, basements, or behind furniture. They are often small, round, and may vary in color depending on the species of spider.
It's important to note that the presence of webs and egg sacs alone does not necessarily indicate a large-scale infestation.
The Risks of Spider Infestation
While most spiders are harmless and even beneficial by controlling other pests, their presence is not without risks. Some spider species can deliver venomous bites. Although serious complications from spider bites are relatively rare, people with allergies or compromised immune systems may be more susceptible to severe reactions.
Spiders like the black widow or brown recluse can be particularly concerning due to their potent venom. Bites from these spiders can lead to symptoms ranging from pain and swelling to more severe systemic effects.
Furthermore, the presence of spider allergens, such as shed skins and droppings, can trigger allergic reactions. These reactions may include skin rashes, itching, sneezing, and respiratory issues, especially for those with pre-existing allergies or asthma.
There is also a potential risk to your property. Certain species of spiders—notably the brown recluse--may establish themselves in dark and undisturbed areas of a home, such as attics or basements. They may chew through fabrics, paper, or other materials to construct their webs. Spider droppings can also stain surfaces, leaving behind unattractive marks.
Preventative Measures to Keep Spiders Away
While our team at Total Pest Control is ready to tackle any existing spider infestations in your home, it's also important to take preventative measures to keep spiders away in the future. Here are some tips to help keep your home spider-free:
- Seal cracks and crevices around doors, windows, and the foundation to prevent spiders from entering your home.
- Keep your home clean and clutter-free to eliminate hiding spots for spiders.
- Use a dehumidifier to reduce moisture in your home, as spiders are attracted to damp environments.
- Trim back vegetation and shrubs from the exterior of your home to reduce outdoor habitats for spiders.
- Consider professional pest control treatments to create a barrier around your home to deter spiders from entering.
By taking these preventative measures, you can help minimize the risk of future spider infestations and keep your home spider-free for the long term.
