Signs You May Need To Call In A Professional Pest Control Company To Deal With Spiders

Seeing a spider here or there in your home is generally nothing to worry about. Spiders may enter your home through a crack in your siding, a rip in a window screen or if you leave your door wide open to let pets in or out. However, sometimes spiders can infest your home or property, or you are dealing with dangerous spiders that can be hazardous to your pets, children or yourself. Knowing when to call in a professional pest control company to deal with spiders is important. Here are a few of the signs that it is time to call in a professional. 

You Notice a Large Number of Cobwebs or Spider Webs in Your Home

If you see a spider web or cobweb in the corner of your home, you may reach for a rag or your vacuum cleaner and remove it. However, if it seems like the cobwebs keep coming back quickly or are noticing more before, it may be because there are spiders making a home in your home. A professional can determine how the spiders are getting in, seal off cracks and gaps where they can enter and remove the existing spiders. 

You Have Found Multiple Spider Egg Sacs 

Another sign that you may need to call in a professional pest control company to deal with spiders is finding more than one spider egg sac in your home. Spider egg sacs are generally white or cream in color, and typically look like they have a layer of silk or thin cotton wrapped around the sac. These sacs are more commonly found in dark or hidden areas and are more likely in spring than other times of the year. 

You Have Spotted Poisonous Spiders In or Around Your Home

There are many different types of poisonous spiders living in various parts of the county. The desert brown spider, also commonly referred to as the fiddle spider is one of the most dangerous, and is identifiable by the brown fiddle-like marking on its back. A black widow, identifiable by the red hourglass on its back, is another poisonous spider. If you notice poisonous spiders in or around your home, you should call in a professional. 

Spiders are not pests that people want living in their homes, even though most are harmless. If you see a stray spider here or there, it is nothing to get alarmed about. However, if you notice cobwebs growing fast and frequently in your home, multiple spider egg sacs or poisonous spiders, you will want to call in a professional to treat the spiders. It is also important to note that if spiders are hanging around your home, there is likely a food source there that they like, which is typically some other type of insect. A pest control company can treat not only your spiders but any other pests that may be attracting spiders to your property in the first place.
