Where Are Spiders Hiding In My Home?
Spiders are predatory insects that will move indoors (especially during the cooler months) to find secure areas to build their webs. Spiders become a nuisance when they build their webs in inconvenient places inside homes, such as eaves, shutters, or window frames.
Spider webs can also be quite unsightly on the exterior of homes and other buildings. Spiders tend to be a particularly significant problem for homes and cabins in forested areas near lakes, streams, or ponds.

How Do I Get Rid Of Spiders?
Spiders typically only enter a dwelling if there are easy means of doing so. You can help to control spider populations by keeping shrubs and bushes trimmed away from the exterior of your property. You should also seal any holes or cracks around doors, windows, and basements. Contacting Plunkett’s Pest Control is the most effective way to ensure your property is kept free of spiders.
Home and cabin owners are typically thrilled to rid their space of spiders and their webs. Next time you take a trip up to the family cabin, give Plunkett’s a call first. You won’t have to spend the first day de-webbing, because we’ll take care of it for you. Plunkett’s will remove any spiders and spider webs in and around your cabin and dock before you even arrive. You’ll be able to enjoy your trip without worrying about any eight-legged interruptions.
How Can I Prevent Spiders In The Future?
Spiders are difficult to prevent, given their ability to enter the home in so many different ways. If spiders have infested your property, contact Plunkett’s as soon as you can to prevent a larger spider problem. The sooner you call, the faster we can help!
Remember: “Over-the-counter” insecticides do not last as long as the materials that professionals are licensed to use. If you use your own materials, you’ll have to apply them frequently to maintain their effectiveness. Calling in a professional team is a better long term solution. When you choose Plunkett’s, we can provide much more lasting relief from spiders, their webs, and other pests, too.
