When To Call Spider Control: Stop Spiders From Entering Your House

As the weather warms up in the Pacific Northwest, many homeowners may encounter an uptick in house guests – in the form of eight-legged creatures. While most spiders are harmless and bring plentiful benefits to the environment, having spiders inside your home can be unsettling and can attract more pests into your home.

When Is The Best Time To Prevent Spiders From Entering Your Home?

In the Pacific Northwest, homeowners may spot spiders coming out of hiding as winter closes and the weather begins to turn. Spiders are spotted roaming outside and into homes as early as late April through July. As summer approaches, spiders will be active outside. The most common time for spiders to enter homes is leading into fall as they look for shelter.

So – when is the best time to prevent spiders from crawling across your floorboards? Prevention is the best way to avoid a spider infestation in your home. The late summer and early spring can be a great time to contact a pest control company to help integrate simple and effective solutions into your home to prepare it for the busy season.

Most pest control companies offer regularly scheduled pest control appointments that focus on inspection and prevention for all pests in your area. Pest Pros recommends regularly scheduled pest control every other month. 

If your home has seen an uptick in pests, it may be time to invest in pest control. When you find a trustworthy spider control partner, not only is your home set up for success through regular maintenance but you can have peace of mind knowing you have an expert on speed dial if you encounter a spider infestation this year.

Signs You Need Spider Control

  • Increased spider sightings: spiders will find their way into your home just about anywhere – however, they are most commonly found in basements, attics, corners of rooms, and cluttered areas. 
  • Increased spider webs: Where this is a web, there is a spider. Look for webs in corners, under furniture, and in secluded areas.
  • Bites or Skin Irritation: While most spiders are not harmful to humans, some species can bite if they feel threatened. If you or your family members are experiencing unexplained bites or skin irritation, it’s best to have your home inspected for spiders.
  • Increase in other pests: Spiders often enter homes in search of food. If you notice an increase in other insects like flies, mosquitoes, or ants, it could indicate a spider infestation.
