Smart Tips for Keeping Spiders Out Of Your Home

Spiders are a particular uninvited guest that most homeowners would rather not see anywhere in their home. With that said, there are few smart and effective ways to keep spiders at bay in your home and ensure that they do not breed or nest in your house anytime of the year. For example, one of the most effective ways of ensuring that spiders do not take up residence in your home is to dust your home on a regular basis.

Reduce The Chances Of New Web Formation

Dust is the very building block of spider webs and can help spiders to propagate and grow in numbers. When you choose to dust your home on a regular basis you greatly reduce the chances of new web formation. In fact, eliminating the chances of web formation and cleaning away existing webs greatly reduces the chances of spiders even being able to survive in your home. This is due to the fact that spiders need a web to survive. A web is what a spider uses to catch its prey. In most cases, spiders will only survive for a few days without an active web.

Liquid Insulators And Similar Products

Along with actively controlling web development in your home it is also important to seal any spaces around your home. From the pipes located under a sink to other small areas where spiders can enter your home, caulking cracks and gaps is an important way to reduce spider infestation. Other effective products that work equally as well as caulking are liquid insulators and similar products. Use caulking or liquid insulation to seal around pipes to effectively reduce the chances of pest infestation.

Spiders Have No Way To Enter

Finally, it is also essential to ensure that good weather stripping is used throughout your home. Use weather stripping around windows, doors and other similar areas of your home to prevent small insects such as spiders from entering. Spiders only require a very tiny space to navigate their way into a home. Eliminate every crevice, crack and gap in your home as a way to ensure that spiders have no way to enter.
