There are almost 50,000 species of spiders in the world and plenty in Houston. Common house spiders are predatory by nature, and hunt bugs for food. Wherever bugs go spiders will follow, and that includes your house. Spiders frequently find their way into Houston homes, and some of them can pose a risk of bites. 

If you have spiders in your house, All-Safe Pest & Termite can handle all of your Houston pest control needs. Our technicians are seasoned and professional, and we know what it takes to get spiders out of your house. Call us today for pest control.

Habits And Behaviors Of Common Spiders

Common household spiders share many of the same traits:

  • They are predators, and they prey on insects. If you have insects in or around your home, spiders will show up soon enough.
  • They are venomous. Spiders use their venom to help them catch prey. Though most spider bites are not overly concerning to humans, a few of them are.
  • Spiders catch prey by trapping them in webs, ambushing them, or chasing them down.
  • Spiders are not overly aggressive, and they typically seek to avoid contact with humans. If they feel threatened, however, they can bite. This usually happens during accidental encounters.

Common household spiders share many traits, but you do not really want any of them in the same house with you. If you find spiders around your home or property, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite. We know how to get rid of spiders, and any other pest problem you may be facing. 

Spiders in The Home Can Be Problematic

Spiders in your house are never a good thing. Spiders come for a reason: they are after the food sources that they prefer, which is bugs. In other words, if you have a spider problem in your Houston home, you also have a bug problem in your home. Consistent and effective spider control techniques require a broad pest control approach that also targets all other pest insects. 

Spiders do not respond well to DIY pest control techniques. Bait traps are ineffective for spiders, and direct efforts with toxic pest products may remove the immediate spiders. Unfortunately, they do nothing to prevent other spiders from showing up and continuing right where the original spiders left off. And yes, some spiders have bites that may cause health problems, though such bites are rarely fatal. It is important to understand, however, that children and pets are most often affected by spider bites because children and pets tend to be curious and exploratory.

Five Helpful Tips To Prevent Spiders In Your Home

Given that spider infestations can cause problems, here are some ways you can minimize the chances that they will show up:

  1. Seal outside garbage: Exposed outside garbage draws bugs, and spiders will follow.
  2. Eliminate clutter: Insects and spiders love hiding in clutter. Cleaning it discourages both.
  3. Seal your home: This blocks entry for bugs, and spiders have no reason to come in.
  4. Eliminate inside food: Keep food cleaned up. Bugs and spiders won’t stay inside.
  5. Clean frequently: Vacuuming often gets rid of crumbs, a common bug food source.

These tips can help decrease the chances of spiders coming into your home, but cannot guarantee that they still won’t come. When that happens, just remember: All-Safe Pest & Termite gets rid of spiders in houses. Call us today for help.
