Spiders look like something from a scary nightmare and for many people there really is nothing quite as terrifying as seeing a spider in your bathroom sink, on the floor, the wall, or even the ceiling – about ready to drop on you. Spiders are some of the creepiest of the creepy-crawly pest line-up. For many keeping spiders out of your home has to be your top priority. Here are a few tips for keeping spiders out of the garage

  • Remember to remove the dust and clutter from your garage. Spiders are looking for a safe place to live and hide, and the fewer spaces you give them, the less likely you are to see them. Vacuum in those hidden spaces like under the couch and under the bed too.
  • Look outside your home to see what might attract spiders (and other pests) in. If you keep bushes and plants well-trimmed and away from the foundation of your home, mulch and stone at least an inch or two out from the foundation, cracks and holes sealed, and screens on both windows and doors tight, you will have fewer problems with spiders.
  • Humid garage seem to attract more spiders. If you can, install a dehumidifier in your home, and you will be far less likely to have a large spider population.

Understanding Spiders

Even if you follow all of these tips, you may still see a stray spider or two. While it is always a good idea to contact pest control professionals if you think you have an ongoing problem with spiders, understanding a bit more about them may help you decide how serious the problem is.

The actual shape of the web, though, depends on the type of spider. Spiders, unlike cockroaches, are not always together. If you see one spider, you are not automatically infested.

Although there are a few exceptions, most of the spiders that you will find inside are actually dangerous. Learning which ones are most common in your area may help you decide if your spider problem is very serious.In order to have spider pest control, you need to eliminate the perfect types of environments that attract spiders.
