The Woodlands is an affluent area in Texas but guess what doesn’t care how much your home cost or how much money you make. Spiders. When spotted, these eight-legged creatures can cause quite a commotion in your household, and though some spiders are considered harmless, that doesn’t mean they can stay in your house.

What Attracts Spiders To Come Inside Homes?

Many people don’t realize that spiders are perfectly content being outside. They have access to food and shelter and don’t need us, humans, for anything. However, when they do come inside your home, it’s usually for food.

When you notice an influx of spiders coming into your house, it’s more than likely that you have other insects in your home, and they’re simply following their source of food. Things like open trash cans, and even plants in and around your home, will attract other insects, which will then attract spiders as well.

Call us today for a general pest inspection of your home. Once we treat your home for other pests, you’ll then notice that spiders will disappear as well.
