Spiders Signal an Even Bigger Problem

Spiders eat other pests so if you see spiders it is a sure sign that there are more insects in your home as well. Having a professional inspect and treat your home is the best step to take. If you need pest control in Severna Park, or anywhere in Anne Arundel County, the experts at Raven Termite and Pest Control can help you.

Facts About Spiders

Spiders are arachnids and while some of them make webs to trap prey, others actively pursue them. An example of this type is the wolf spider, which is a common house spider. They hunt prey day and night. Wolf spiders vary in color from black to earth tones. With a leg span of three inches, you’ll usually find them in the basement where they eat ants and flies.
Another spider you may see is the yellow house spider. These small spiders move rapidly. During winter they will make their way indoors to weave white webs. Then, when spring arrives, they return outdoors again where the yellow spiders eat wasps.
If there are many spiders in the home, it means they have found an abundant food source. Some spiders even eat other spiders! If you notice various types of spiders, it likely means that they are drawn to a significant population of a certain insect. Additionally, sometimes the issue is moisture. Spiders are attracted to dark and moist environments, so if you notice an abundance of spiders, it can mean that there is a leak somewhere in your home.
