Keep Spiders Out Of Your Louisville, KY Home This Fall

While many spiders live outside, some species fall under the category of house spiders. House spiders are the ones you will most likely encounter in your home this fall. Unlike black widows and brown recluse spiders, house spiders aren’t medically dangerous to humans.

While pests like rodents make their way into homes during the fall months, spiders don’t need to seek warmth. This is because spiders are cold-blooded and can keep their blood from freezing. Although this is the case, spiders will still make their way inside if it provides a reliable food source and quiet place to build their webs.

If you don’t want to deal with spiders in your Louisville, Kentucky home this fall, you should keep reading for expert prevention tips and learn about Action Pest Control’s pest control services in Louisville.

Spider Prevention Tips

Do you want to prevent spiders in your home? Instead of focusing on spiders themselves, you should focus on their food, which is other pests. Prey pests are a big reason spiders will enter a home. So to combat spiders, you should do the following as general pest prevention:

  • Ensure all windows and doors have screens without holes and keep those that doors closed whenever possible.
  • Remove clutter and debris from both the interior and exterior of your home. This includes leaf and woodpiles, boxes, and other stored items.
  • Keep moisture from building up by fixing any leaks, maintaining gutters, and using dehumidifiers.
  • Seal any possible entry points like cracks in the foundation and exterior walls of your home. 
  • Remove food that attracts pests by sweeping regularly and keeping opened food in sealed containers.
