As Halloween rolls around the corner, it’s not the only spooky thing creeping its way into your home this October. Fall marks the beginning of the mating season for spiders all over, and your home might be the place to find an appropriate mate. Below are some tips for keeping your home spider-free this fall season!
1. Clean out Quiet and Dark Places
The best way to keep spiders away is to make sure dark and quiet places are cleaned out frequently in your home. The most notorious places for spiders to hide are garages and the attics since both of those places have dark, quiet areas for spiders to make webs free from any commotion in the house. Attics and garages lead to the exteriors of homes, which make them a great entry point for all kinds of critters. If you notice any webs while cleaning out those areas, use a broom to clear them out. Try to get rid of clutter laying around your home as well and clear up any place that might attract spiders.
2. Block Spiders from Coming In
The most common ways a spider can enter your home is through doors, windows, and air vents. Making sure these points of entry are sealed properly can help maintain a spider-free home. Seal any cracks in the foundations or any holes or gaps you might find. You can put a screen in front of the air vents and steel wool or caulk in any gaps that you find.
3. Choose Bug Zero
