What attracts spiders?
- Shelter: Spiders seek shelter for a few reasons, including to escape from extreme weather conditions, hide from predators, and find a safe place to breed.
- Food: Spiders feed off of other pests (such as cockroaches, flies, moths, and mosquitoes), so they will enter a home with other pests present. Unfortunately, this usually means that a spider infestation also indicates an infestation of another kind.
- Mates: Male spiders can sense females and will enter a home if they know there are females there to mate with.
How do spiders get inside of my home?Spiders can find about a million and one ways to get into your home. These creatures are crafty and small, which makes finding their way inside quite easy. They will enter a home through holes in window and door screens, damaged roof shingles, chimneys, open doors, the gap between a door and the floor, vents without screens, and any other small openings. They can also hitch a ride on firewood, used furniture, clothing, plants, and more.
