Common house spiders have made their way back into the comforts of your warm home this winter season. Luckily, house spiders are a nuisance pest more than anything, meaning that your biggest concern is really the webs that they leave behind rather than the threat of the spider itself.
Spiders do not survive very long in modern homes with low humidity and that are pest free. Without insects to feed on they cannot survive. (This is just one of many reasons to make sure that your pest control stays up-to-date). However, spiders do thrive in places with high humidity and insects to feed on such as garages, sheds, warehouses, basements, etc.
Spiders are often found in a home in corners, window frames, along baseboards, in garages, and close to light sources. Dusting webs and keeping your pest control up to date can help you in keeping spiders out of your home.
