Preparing for the Holidays: How to Get Rid of Spiders

The holiday season is coming up, and you’re in-laws are already going to be criticizing you for enough. They don’t need further incentive via a spider creeping its way across your wrapping paper strewn carpets. While a spider can easily disrupt a family get-together, there are steps you can take to keep them out of your house. Here are some ways to stop spiders from inviting themselves to your party.

Call Presto

De-web Your House

Spiders use their webs to catch food, so clear away cobwebs wherever you find them. They usually spin their webs in closed off spaces like under couches and radiators. If you take away their method of feeding themselves, then hopefully, after a while, they will take the hint and realize that they are not wanted in your home.

Find a Compromise

As much as spiders freak us out, they are mostly harmless to humans, and even somewhat helpful. They can kill a great number of flies and mosquitoes which spread germs and diseases, and they rarely bite unless directly threatened. Still, you don't want them eating with you at the dinner table, so here's what you can do. Clear the cobwebs in every place you visit frequently. This includes bathrooms, kitchens, etc. Then, leave them alone in spots like basements, crawl spaces and boiler rooms. This will direct the spiders into those parts of your house where they can live in peace, while you and your visitors won't have to look at them. It's a win-win.

Spiders are, safe to say, no fun at parties. They’re creepy, shiver inducing creatures that can startle even the toughest of individuals. Fortunately, with a few quick steps, they can be out of sight and out of mind. For more information, or to receive quality pest control services, Contact Presto today.
