If you want to prevent a spider infestation from happening in or around your home, you need to start taking preventive measures as soon as possible. This is the time of year when spiders spend months in hibernation before they start breeding. Below are a few quick tips that you should consider when trying to prevent a spider infestation.

  • Seal Up All Possible Entry Points 

Any crack, hole, or crevice in your home could be a possible entry point for spiders. You should look over your walls, doors and windows to ensure that there are not any entry points for pests.

  • Clean Up Messes

Spiders love to hide in cluttered areas. You should clean your storage room, attic, basement, boiler room, and any other place that you do not frequently go. If you find spider webs or signs of colonization in one of the rooms, you should get in touch with a pest control expert that can safely remove the spiders from your home. 

  • Check Items Before Bringing Them Inside

Spiders can also get into your home by hiding in things that you are carrying, such as furniture or luggage. Before you take anything through your door, you should make sure there aren’t any spiders or spider webs.

  • Keep your Lawn Maintained 

One of the most common places that spiders and other pests like to colonize is in your lawn. You need to keep your lawn in good shape in order to keep pests away. You should mow your lawn regularly and set up proper irrigation so that your lawn stays healthy and pest free.
