- Excess vegetation very close to the house: Check for tall grasses near your house and overhanging trees as they can attract insects. So keep the premises tidy and clean them at regular intervals.
- Open water near your home: Open water on the property provides a breeding source for many insects like mosquitoes and midges; which in turn attracts spiders. Houses built right near a lake are prime locations for their infestations.
- Gaps around windows or doors and unscreened vents: Large gaps in siding, unsealed openings around pipe penetrations, unscreened vents and windows will allow the entry of these arachnids’ in the house.
- Overuse of chemical fertilisers: Avoid using chemical fertilizers, pesticides etc., on your property. Excess nitrogen attracts many insects, such as aphids-a spider feast.
- Readily available supply of food and water: Spiders are opportunists and are attracted to areas where food (insects) and moisture are abundant. Eliminate insect breeding areas; reduce moisture by repair leaking pipes. And just see that it will work miracles to keep these creatures away.
