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.

Some people think that when the temperatures drop, they will have less pest issues. For some critters this may be true, as they use the autumn to store up for a cold winter, during which they hide away. However, some of the larger animals such as squirrels, raccoons, possums, etc., might want to use your home for a warm space to hide away from the weather. Northwest Exterminating’s Wildlife Team knows just what to do in order to keep your home a pest-free zone!
Depending on what type of animals may be in your area, they can leave you susceptible to various issues. For instance, some squirrels like to make nests in attics, using your insulation as material! The costs of repair plus the hazards of a potential electrical fire due to damaged wires makes it really necessary to block this area off from potential unwanted guests. Aside from squirrels, other creatures have the potential to do damage in the form of bites or fleas that might affect your children or pets.
To reduce these risks against you, Northwest’s Wildlife Team specializes in wildlife exclusion. One of form of wildlife exclusion involves sealing up any potential openings to secure your home. The Wildlife Team will inspect your home, evaluating potential problem areas and implementing measures to eliminate these issues. However, if by chance your home has already gotten unsolicited attention from these pests, the Wildlife Team knows just what to do to take care of your home and prevent the issue from happening in the future.
