How Do Spiders Get In Your House?

Facing a spider infestation often points to broader issues in your home, primarily driven by unfavorable outdoor conditions or the presence of other pests that serve as food for spiders. Extreme weather, whether it's too dry, wet, or cold, can push spiders to seek refuge indoors. Moreover, if you're seeing spiders, it's likely you have other pests like roaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, or flies, indicating a more significant pest problem.

Spiders can enter through very small openings, such as gaps in doors, holes in screens, or cracks in the foundation. These entry points suggest that preventing spiders also means sealing off your home to a variety of pests.

Addressing a spider infestation quickly is key, as it usually signals a larger pest issue. A professional pest control company, like Plunkett’s, can offer comprehensive solutions, not just removing spiders but also tackling the root cause by eliminating their food sources. This approach ensures a more long-term solution to keeping your home pest-free.

What Problems Do Spiders Cause?

Spiders leave webs around your home and set up shop in boxes, closets, and other storage areas.

On the other hand, spiders can also be helpful guests because they eat other pests that roam your home.

So, spiders in your space aren't usually detrimental… they are just a little creepy and you probably don’t want them as roommates!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Attracts Spiders in My House?

Spiders, like many pests, like a nice quiet, undisturbed place where they can build their webs and find food. If you have a spider problem in your home or business, it’s probably because they - and other pests - have gone unchecked for some time. Seal cracks and crevices and entry points and declutter to keep spiders away.

How Do I Keep Spiders Out of My House?

Not a fan of sharing your home with 8-legged creatures? Keep spiders out of your house by repairing cracks and holes in walls, doors, and windows, cleaning your house frequently, vacuum up webs, and use deterrents. Learn more about how to get spiders out of your house.

What Do Spiders Eat?

Most spiders are carnivores that eat other pests. In your home, spiders may eat flies, moths, ants, mosquitoes or any other insect that crosses their path.

How to Get Rid of Crab Spiders

Crab spiders can be removed by regular dusting and vacuuming, especially in corners and under furniture. Since crab spiders are primarily outdoor spiders that occasionally wander indoors, ensuring windows, doors, and other entry points are sealed can prevent them from entering.

Are the Spiders I See in My House Dangerous?

Usually, no. Most of the time spiders are harmless. More than 3,000 species of spiders have been identified in the United States. Of these, only about 60 have been responsible for dangerous bites. Learn more about the types of spiders in your house.

Are There Poisonous Spiders in Minnesota?

Minnesota only has two venomous spiders that are dangerous: the northern black widow spider and the brown recluse. The brown recluse is not native and it’s uncommon to find them. Yellow sac spiders are not aggressive and will only react when threatened. They can bite, but their venom is not as dangerous as the black widow and/or brown recluse.

Are There Wolf Spiders in Minnesota?

Wolf spiders are one of the larger spiders in the Midwest and can be startling, but they are not venomous. They are native to Minnesota and hide beneath stones and debris. If you’re wondering how to get rid of wolf spiders (or any other spider) Plunkett’s can help.

How Do I Identify a Brown Recluse Spider?

Brown recluse spiders range in coloration from light, tan-brown to a darker, dirt-like brown. Their legs will be a slightly lighter version of the same color as their bodies. They are largely mono-colored. If the spider you’re looking at has stripes or bands, it’s not a brown recluse. Learn more about how to identify a brown recluse.

How Strong is Spider Silk?

Spider silk is one of the strongest substances on earth relative to its thickness. A strand of spider’s silk is five times stronger than an equivalent strand of steel. Spider silk spun by the Darwin Bark Spider is the strongest known material made by a living organism. Learn more about spider silk.
