Why Are There So Many Spiders In My Anaheim Home?

Spiders – those eight-legged, buggy-eyed creepy creatures that can raise the little hairs on the back of your neck and have you reaching for a shoe or rolled-up magazine faster than you can say "arachnophobia!" While they may be fascinating to some, having them crawl around your home can be a bit too close for comfort. And whether you're dealing with a harmless house spider or a dangerous brown recluse, there are ways to keep these sinister-looking arachnids at bay to ensure your home stays safe.

Fortunately, A-1 Bonded Termite provides the services you need to eradicate different kinds of spiders from your home, making it a comfortable place to live. Continue reading to learn more about these pests and how Anaheim pest control specialists can transform your property into a spider-free zone.

Anaheim Is Home To Many Types Of Spiders

It's odd that the city home to "the happiest place on earth" is also the same location where many different spider species reside. When you have an arachnid problem on your property, it certainly doesn't feel like Disneyland. Some of the most common house spiders in Anaheim include:

  • Wolf spider
  • Cellar spider
  • Black widow spider
  • Jumping spider
  • Brown recluse spider

Unlike the black widow and brown recluse, which should be avoided at all costs, most spider species in our area are harmless. And as menacing as it looks, the wolf spider is non-venomous, although its bite can be painful. 

Contact a reputable pest control company for further assistance if you're encountering more spiders than you're comfortable with.

Why You Don't Want Spiders Hanging Around Your Home

Although most of the spiders in our area are harmless and can be beneficial as a natural form of pest control to regulate the population of other undesirable critters, having too many lurking around is not a good situation. One of the worst feelings is walking right into a spider web and hoping its occupant isn't home as you frantically wipe it away. Webs are also unsightly and give the impression that your home is dirty and unkempt.

Spiders can multiply quickly, laying hundreds of eggs at a time, which means a few arachnid sightings can balloon into a large infestation if not addressed. Also, venomous spiders, like black widows or brown recluses, can create a potentially dangerous situation. If bitten, their venom can cause a range of symptoms from mild irritation to severe pain with the need for medical attention. But even if they're harmless, spiders can still cause psychological distress and induce intense fear and anxiety for many people.

The best way to get rid of spiders in your home to avoid the potential dangers and unsightliness they bring is to call A-1 Bonded Termite. We'll be glad to assist you.

Why Do I Have A Spider Problem In My Home?

Do you have a spider problem on your hands but are not sure why? Spiders are attracted to our homes for a few reasons. One of them is darkness. Arachnids prefer to hide in dark and quiet spaces where they can remain undisturbed, such as closets, attics, and basements. They're also drawn to dusty and cluttered areas to lay their eggs. And we can't forget about food. Spiders feast on an assortment of insects, like mosquitoes, flies, and ants, which are also regular home invaders.

Tidy up unclean areas of your home and contact a reputable pest service to eliminate all types of spiders and other pests from your property.
