When Should I Call An Exterminator for Spiders?
Mixing garlic juice in a spray bottle also repels spiders. Salt is poisonous to spiders, so creating a salt spray is an effective natural spider killer.
With thousands of species of spiders, it’s not possible to answer that question reliably.
However, the common female house spider deposits as many as 250 eggs into a sac in her web. In her lifetime, she will produce as many as 4,000 eggs.
Very impressive for an arachnid that lives about a year!
Where Do Spiders Like To Live?
Essential oils mixed with dishwashing liquid works well as a spider repellent. Choose citrus, tea tree, lavender, cinnamon, mint, neem, peppermint, spearmint, and citronella to do the job.
You can also catch spiders with sticky glue traps. Lay traps throughout your whole house. Don’t forget closets, the basement, your garage, and the attic. Other traffic areas for spiders include baseboards and corners. Put traps there, too.
The more traps you lay, the better. Just make sure traps stay out of the reach of children and pets.
The best way to get rid of spiders is to reduce their food source. If they can’t find food, they will move on somewhere else. That’s why it’s important to repair loose screens and gaps around the doors in your house.
Keep your porch lights off as much as possible to keep from attracting spider prey. Vacuum regularly to remove both spiders, their eggs, and their webs.
Reduce clutter in the typical places where spiders hide like, boxes, bags, stacks of paper, etc. Ventilate damp areas like the basement to make the space less desirable for spiders.
We Can Help!
Spiders move into your house because they can!
If there are doors or screens that don’t fit properly, or vents that aren’t screened, spiders will move inside.
They also come inside when it’s too cold or too dry outside, and they have found a source of food in your home.
Spiders are actually beneficial in reducing other common pests in your home.
However, if you just can’t tolerate living with them, or you have an infestation, then it’s time to do something about it.

Eco-Friendly Spider Pest Control
Generally, spiders like dark, damp places to live. House spiders prefer quiet places where they can readily find moisture and food. In this case, other bugs.
Spiders don’t really need a lot of water, but their prey are attracted to it.
So spiders live where their prey live.

What Do Spiders Look Like?
Most spiders have two body regions, no wings or antennae, and 8 legs. Some species of spiders are tiny, while others are extremely large, like the tarantula. Most spiders are harmless, but there are two in the US that are venomous, the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse.
The Black Widow, which can be found in our area, is famously known for its red hourglass marking on the underside of its abdomen. It’s a shiny black color and is between .118”- .393,” with the females larger than the males.
Spiders have poor vision even though they have three or four pairs of eyes. The exception is the jumping spider, which has excellent vision.
Spiders don’t have mouth parts, so they can’t chew food. Instead, they produce digestive enzymes in their saliva to break down their prey before eating them.
