Spiders may be your best friend out in the garden where they eat unwanted pests. However, when it comes to the sanctity of your home, the last thing you want are hundreds or even thousands of eight-legged creatures roaming around your rooms.
Spider infestations are one of our specialties at Buzz Kill Pest Control. However, before you call us out after seeing your first Daddy Long-Leg of the season, make sure that you’ve noticed these other signs that you have a spider infestation on your property.
Numerous Spider Webs
Every home has its cracks and crevices, and that’s where spiders love to dwell. If you keep your home relatively clean but start to notice that you have to keep cleaning spider webs in those dark corners of each room, this is an indicator that you have a spider problem inside your home and may be in need of spider control services.
You’ve Stumbled Upon Egg Sacs
When spiders mate, they will leave hundreds of eggs wrapped up in a sinewy sac. They will rest in this spot until they hatch and carry on the breeding process of an infestation.
If you find even one egg sac, promptly remove it from your home. A professional pest control company can do this job for you, but make sure that you act immediately. If that egg hatches, you’ll have hundreds of more spiders creeping around your home, creating even more sacs of their own!
Spiders Become a Common Sight
It’s common to find one or two spiders every now and then. Yet, if spiders are a common nuisance, and you’re seeing the same type of spider throughout your home, this is a sure sign of an infestation.
Your Other Bugs Have Disappeared
Summer usually brings about other bugs in your home like flies, gnats, and ants. If you’ve seen these pests flying or scuttling around your home then suddenly notice their absence, you probably shouldn’t let out a sigh of relief.
Spiders love to prey on smaller insects within their territory. So, a sudden disappearance of bugs that were already a problem, could indicate that something larger is eating them up.
We say it’s better to be safe than sorry and to call out a local pest control company to conduct an inspection and find out what’s really behind the disappearance. Likely, it’s an undetected spider infestation.
You’re Getting Random Bites
Finally, random bites that you can’t determine the origin of, are sure signs that you have a spider problem. Keep an eye on your bites and any symptoms of allergies after you’ve discovered them.
Not all spider bites are fatal, but Texas is home to the Black Widow and Brown Recluse, two of the most dangerous creeps in the nation.
