Both indoors and outdoors, spider populations have seemingly exploded in the last 2 months and nearly everyone is dealing with them in one capacity or another. While your home or business may not be experiencing an infestation, a statewide increase in spiders has prompted many people to be worried. Especially if they aren’t fond of these 8-legged arachnids. In this article, we will explore some of the reasons that you may be seeing more fall spiders and some tips to help get rid of them as colder weather struggles to settle in.
As you may recall, we have had an incredibly rainy spring and summer season this far. When this occurs, it allows all pest and insect populations to quickly flourish from mosquitoes all the way to flies and other small insects. Unfortunately, this also increases the amount of food available to spiders. With this bounty of food available, spiders are able to have a successful reproductive season and continue to expand their numbers given the current conditions.
Most spider species you will find around your home are little more than a nuisance pest and cause no real harm. In fact, their presence can help ensure that you aren’t constantly fighting other pests that could flourish without a predator to keep their population numbers in check. Spiders are a great pest control provider if you are willing to cohabitate with them. But what are the options available if you don’t?
