Get Rid of Spiders

There is nothing quite like seeing a spider crawling on the wall, or even across the floor. Spiders are one of the most common pests that homeowners have to deal with. The problem is that some spiders can be dangerous. If you want to get rid of spiders there are a few different things that you can do. Here are just a few tips when trying to get rid of spiders in your home.  

Minimize Other Pests

If you have a major spider problem there is a good chance that you have other pests in the home. You should do everything that you can to minimize other pests. One of the best ways to minimize other pests is to keep a clean home. If you have crumbs and other food items around, it could attract ants and other pests. When you have other pests in the home, the spiders are going to come hunting. Another way that you can keep other pests to a minimum is to keep your outside lights off. The outside lights are going to attract all sorts of different bugs, and those bugs once again are going to be the meal of a spider. 

Seal Your Home

Often spiders are going to try to creep into your home through cracks and chips in your home. This is going to often be around doors and windows. Make sure that all the cracks around your windows and doors are completely sealed up. You may want to hire a contractor to come and inspect the seal around your doors and windows. It is possible that they need to be re-calked. You will also want to seal up your basement and crawl space if you have one. Find a sealant at a home improvement store and apply the sealant to the walls of your basement or crawl space. 

Hire Professional Pest Control

If you find that you are just not putting a dent in the spiders, it is time to call a professional pest control company. The technicians that are going to come to your home will eliminate other bugs, but they will also kill the spiders that are around your home. The technicians are very thorough and will make sure that they spray the entire home. Most pest control companies will allow you to buy a contract in which they are required to spray multiple times a year.
