Why Are They Invading My House?

Spiders are there for one reason: the food. So, if you have a spider problem, then you also have other pest problems. They will spin their webs in high-traffic bug areas in hopes to catch as many as possible. Typical spider food would be:

  • Flies
  • Moths
  • Mosquitoes
  • Sometimes other spiders

It’s great that spiders eat all of these flying pests, especially mosquitoes, but it doesn’t change the fact that spiders are in your house. Ew!

A study conducted by Lund University in Sweden estimates that spiders eat 400 to 800 million metric tons of insects each year. To put that number into perspective, humans consume approximately 400 million tons of meat and fish annually.

Spider Prevention Tips

Spiders seem to creep their way into every type of dwelling, from commercial properties to high-end homes. Being vigilant with these preventive measures is your first line of defense against a spider invasion. Make a list and check it twice.

  • Check window screens for holes, rips, or bent frames. Fill holes and cracks around the outside of the house.
  • Empty garbage frequently, and keep outdoor garbage cans away from the house.
  • Be sure that food is in airtight plastic containers.
  • Insulate pipes to avoid condensation.
  • Frequent de-webbing is probably the most effective and quickest way to deter the spider’s attempt to take up residence.
  • Keeping a clean and tidy home that is clutter-free is a definite help. Spiders dislike the smell of bleach or white vinegar.
  • The use of essential oils near suspected entry points makes your home far less inviting. Peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus oils are recommended.
  • Check the underside of furniture and dressers for egg sacs. Remove them carefully if you find any.
  • Be sure that your door sweeps are in good repair.

Doing your best to follow these tips, paired with our spider extermination services, will have your Portland home spider-free in no time.
