What Draws Spiders To Your Home?
Spiders are drawn to your home for shelter, especially during those cold winter months here in Northern Utah. Generally, it’s often unavoidable to have a completely spider-free home. This doesn’t mean your home is dirty; it’s very easy for them to get in.
A few of these insects here and there are normal, but given that some of them can go beyond a jump-scare to a danger, we understand wanting them gone and doing whatever you can to keep them out.
Spiders will come to your home to:
- Mate. During mating season, it’s common for the male to hide in corners of your home as they build a home and look for the female to mate with.
- Find shelter. As previously mentioned, they want shelter from uncomfortable temperatures and the elements, and that’s easy to find in a home or business.
- Get food. They feed on other pests, so if you’re noticing a lot of spiders, chances are, they’re just drawn to your home because you have an underlying invasion of a different kind of pest.
Since most are so small, they can slip through the smallest of cracks in your window screen, vents, and other such areas. In addition to open areas, they can also enter your home by carrying in with something else, such as that new houseplant you just got.
Are Spiders Dangerous?
Most spiders you’ll see around your property aren’t dangerous. You pose more of a danger to them than they do to you. Typically, if you just have a spider here and there, you can leave them alone, and they’ll help you by eating other pests in your home or business.
However, several species of them can be very harmful. While all have some venom, most spider bites won’t do more than cause itching. This isn’t the case with the brown recluse, hobo, wolf, or black widows. Bites from these insects can necessitate medical attention, as they can be necrotic and even fatal in extreme cases.
