How Did I Get Spiders?
Loose screens and cracks around doors, windows, and other openings are all possible entryways for a spider. These pests may move indoors while searching for food, mates, warmth, or moisture. The presence of insects and other prey in homes is a common reason for spiders to come inside. Spiders are also accidentally introduced inside homes when they are unknowingly introduced to the home’s interior via infested items such as plants, firewood, clothing and other items stored in attics, basements or other storage areas. Spiders on the exterior of your home is usually a sign of having flying insects around. If you live in a wooded area or are close to a body of water you are probably going to encounter spiders on a regular basis.
