House Spider Control

The first step in controlling house spider populations is locating possible entry points. They often enter through gaps around windows and doors. Sealing these openings is critical to reduce possible future house spider invasions. Window and door screens can prevent the entry of other insect pests, and the use of door sweeps is suggested. Cracks and other voids within walls and foundations should be sealed with caulking. Following exclusion, homeowners may choose to vacuum to remove webs and egg sacs. Outside, webs can be knocked down.

If house spiders are invading, contacting a pest management professional can be the best solution, since they have the knowledge and tools to manage them.
