You are sitting in your living room and enjoying a TV show when all of a sudden, you see an eight-legged creature crawling across your wall. Earlier in the day, you saw another one making a web in the corner of your kitchen.
No matter where you turn, it seems like there are spiders everywhere in your home. Here are some of the signs you need to look for if you think you have an infestation.
Spiders always make webs to catch their prey. There are definitely spiders somewhere in your home if you see cobwebs everywhere. You can get rid of the spiders, but keep looking out to see if the webs come back. If they come back, you know the spiders are still there.
2. Crevices and Cracks
Some spiders like to burrow in holes. Because of this, they like to hide in all the cracks and crevices in your home. If you see a lot of these, it might be best to patch up the cracks and crevices to block them from coming in and out of their hiding places.
Since some spiders enjoy moist areas, it is important to check those areas when you expect there to be an infestation. This could be the source of all your issues. Once you find where the spiders are coming from, you can call in pest control professionals like UltraPro Pest Protection to keep them out. The most common place to find this type of moisture in your home is in the basement, so checking there first might solve your problems.
4. Unused places
Not only do they hide in moist places, but they also hide in places where they won’t be disturbed. Some of these places include attics, inside of walls and sheds. Those are other places to check once these pests start taking over other areas of your home.
If you see an influx of spiders in your home, there are most likely other pests around, too. Spiders feed on other insects such as ants, flies, millipedes and even other spiders. All of these spiders could be warning you about all the other pests living in your home.
Once you suspect all of these pests are calling your home theirs, call pest control professionals like UltraPro Pest Protection. They will work to get any type of pest you have, even if it’s more than one type. Whether it’s spiders, millipedes, ants or any other type of insect, they will help you live a pest-free life.
