Warm weather is starting to show up in Milford. Trees will start to get their leaves back, kids are outside playing, and most important of all – grilling season is upon us! While warm weather is nice for us humans, it also means insects and spiders are starting to show up in and around our homes and businesses. Spiders are usually unwelcome guests in our homes – unless they are named Charlotte and entertain us with web phrases. They leave webs all over the place, can give us the heebie-jeebies, or in some cases, even hurt us. Even the cleanest of homes in Milford can get spiders in and around the house. Milford spider control is a key service Rove provides home and business owners throughout the year.
Why Do Spiders Love Houses?
It is unavoidable (and even quite normal) to have spiders get into your house if left untreated. Why are spiders attracted to houses?
Looking for shelter: the weather is the main factor. Outside can be too cold, hot, or wet for spiders to live. This is why they seek out houses to live in. They like to hide in garages, basements, attics, and etc. Each species is a little bit different, but those that are mobile or capable of living in or out will choose a controlled environment over an unpredictable one.
Looking for food: Spiders can’t live without a source of energy they get from food. Odds are if you are seeing spiders, you have other pests hanging around as well. Spiders love to eat insects, and any pest they can subdue. Milford spider control needs to incorporate an element that targets the smorgasbord of arthropods spiders seek.
Looking for a mate: male spiders during the mating season will enter your house looking to find a female to mate with.
How Do Spiders Get into a House?
Spiders can enter our homes in multiple ways. As homes age, it gets easier and easier. No, this doesn’t mean after years and years. The initial settling of a home over the first few months after it is built is all they need to access the interior and voids through cracks and seams. They can also get into the house through windows, doors, or any other small opening they can find. Rove’s Milford spider control plans place barriers that stop spiders and their prey from gaining entry unscathed.
Protect Your Home
Spider activity can change from year to year and even season to season. Ok, let’s be honest – it seems to change from day today. We knock down a web, go eat a sandwich, and then knock the web down from the exact same place!
That is why it is important to get an expert opinion on the matter. Contact a pest control company to set up a service or even to help identify what kind of activity is occurring. While most spiders are not dangerous, there are some spiders in Milford that have medical significance. Some of these include widow spiders and sac spiders.
The Value of Follow Up
Just like my basketball coach taught me – the follow-up is more important than the shot. It’s important to regularly check for population growth or areas that are conducive to activity. This is why we provide our clients with Milford spider control have quarterly services (or more often if necessary). Additionally, if something changes before we are scheduled to come back out, we cover that too.
Reach out to one of our Milford spider control specialists to get your custom plan in place so you don’t have to worry about spiders and can get back to grilling up some burgers and enjoy the warm weather.
