Many people have an inherent fear of spiders. Something about the eight-legged creatures makes people’s skin crawl. Unfortunately, arachnids are common pests, and many homeowners face infestations every year that demand the skills of professional spider removal in Richmond Hill.
In one respect, spiders are beneficial to the local ecosystem. They are nature’s pest control. However, given time and opportunity, they can become invasive and infest properties. As with all pests, homeowners must remain diligent about preventative and treatment practices.
3 Signs It’s Time To Call Professional Spider Removal Services
Most spiders in Canada and the Richmond Hill region are harmless. Still, you likely don’t want them lurking around your house, especially inside.
To prevent spiders, you need to focus on the key signs of their presence and intentions to stay. Knocking down webs or catching and releasing the arachnids is not always enough. Discover the common signs of spiders and how to remove and eliminate them from your property.
1. Presence of Egg Sacs and Cobwebs
The most common sign of a spider infestation and problem is the presence of egg sacs and cobwebs. Egg sacs are typically white or cream in colour and found in the corners of webs or tucked nearby. Spiders can lay and create multiple egg sacs depending on the species.
Cobwebs are either signs of abandoned webs or existing spiders. Standard house spiders and comb-footed spiders. The webs are often loose and haphazard-looking, and many people confuse them for collections of dust or abandoned and unoccupied webs.
Vacuuming up egg sacs and webs is an excellent way to prevent younger spider generations from developing in your home, but it likely won’t rid your house of an existing issue. To treat an existing infestation, you need a pest control service like Truly Nolen Canada.
2. Finding Spider Nests
Spiders do not always build webs, and even ones that do build webs may not create them in apparent places. Like all living things, spiders want to be safe, capable of surviving and thriving in peace.
When inspecting your home for an infestation, you must look beyond the obvious locations — ceiling corners, basements, and windows. It would be best if you looked behind books on bookshelves, underneath furniture, behind books on shelves and appliances, including televisions.
Also, look behind and around boxes when searching basements, garages, and attics. Look around exposed beams and behind doors. Spiders like to hide.
3. Presence of Other Insect Infestations
Like most infestations, spiders have a motivation that drives them to and inside your property. A spider problem likely develops after another infestation or pest problem, specifically with insects, a spider’s primary food source.
If your property invites and helps insect populations thrive, you likely end up with a spider infestation. Like most living things, Arachnids go where the food source is steadiest.
The good news for homeowners is that if they can treat the underlying infestation and motivation for spiders, they can resolve both problems simultaneously. If a pest control service eliminates the insect problem, it eliminates the food source, so spiders should move on.
