While many spiders are beneficial for the environment and killing other pests outside, there are four venomous species in Indiana to avoid. The best way to keep your household safe is to prevent spiders from getting in there in the first place.
How To Make Sure Spiders Stay Out
Spiders love to make their home in all the nooks and crannies around your house. In particular, places that aren’t disturbed for some time are prime areas. These are some of the more common places to find them:
Doors and eaves
Fences and deck rails
Trees and shrubs
Rock piles and woodpiles
Windows with damaged screens and vents missing caulking
Keeping entry points in good repair is one way to ensure you don’t find nests or unwelcome insect visitors. Another great way is to treat your property with a spider treatment.
Why Treat for Spiders
Spider control is important because bites from brown recluses, Mediterranean recluses, and northern and southern black widows can cause significant damage. Some poisonous bites take weeks or months to heal. In rare cases, the venom can kill people.
Treating yards and exteriors to create a pest-free barrier can prevent you from finding telltale egg sacks and webs in your personal space. Maintaining a spider-free home is not a one-and-done process, because you can’t make a permanent seal around the outside of your house. You can, however, have us treat your exterior with our Barrier Spray once every three weeks to get rid of spiders, fleas and mosquitoes all in one go. When we come out, we seek out the places spiders hide.
