Fall, one of our favorite times of the year...Thanksgiving, pumpkin spice, cooler weather, and spiders...SPIDERS? That's right, spiders! Have you ever noticed that you tend to see a lot more spiders in Autumn? Well, that's because it's breeding season for our fly-eating friends. The reason spiders tend to come into our homes is because they are in search of food, heat, a mate, and a nice place to lay their eggs.
Did you know that, according to some studies, almost a third of Americans are arachnophobic? It's no wonder most people are terrified of spiders; they can be anywhere, in the kitchen, living room, bathroom, and even our bedrooms, not to mention that some of them are poisonous.
A fun activity you can do to see how many spiders are around your home is to go outside at night with a flashlight and put the light up to your nose, shining it out into the yard; you can see the eyes of spiders glowing back at you? Their eyes reflect the light. This can be very unnerving, especially if you are afraid of spiders. Obviously, if you are afraid of spiders, this is probably not a good idea for you to do, but have no fear Gressette Pest Management, located in Orangeburg, SC, is here to help keep spiders out of your home.
Spiders usually find their way into your home through cracks, doors, and windows. They can be found in all kinds of homes, not just old houses but new ones as well, and they are typically located in corners, under sinks, and under furniture. Spiders also love clutter because they can find a lot more dark places to hide.
