To reduce spider populations and limit the number of house spiders that make it into your home, follow these D-I-Y spider prevention from the Boulder pest control professionals at EnviroPest by Sprague:
Spiders enter your home looking for the prey that they feed on; a spider’s primary source of food is insects, so if you have insects in your home already, you will have spiders entering, looking for food. When you eliminate insects, you will reduce the number of spiders that make it inside.
Reduce entry points in your home. If insects and spiders cannot get inside, you will be dealing with far fewer pests inside your home. Check the exterior for gaps or holes; use caulking or weather stripping to close up these gaps.
Spiders and other insects will hide in vegetation, so cutting back shrubs and trees from the side of your home can help reduce spider infestations inside your home. Spiders will also hide in piles of your belongings as well as fire wood, so make sure to store any piles well away from your home.
To attract fewer insects, install sodium vapor or yellow lighting outdoors. These types of lights are less attractive to insects.
Vacuum up spiders and their webs whenever you locate them. By doing this, you may be able to eliminate spiders from laying eggs inside your home, which will greatly reduce the size of your spider infestation.
