House Spiders Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are house spiders dangerous?

As predators, house spiders are harmful to their insect prey but pose no threat to humans.

Their venom is only potent enough to immobilize insects and is insufficient to create issues in humans. Spiders prefer to remain hidden and will only bite if they feel cornered or otherwise threatened.

Dealing with house spiders is a nuisance, and the repeated construction and abandonment of nests throughout your home can be aggravating.

A few house spiders can rapidly multiply into a large number of house spiders due to their rapid reproduction.

Why do I have a house spider problem?

House spiders have either followed their prey inside or are looking for a safe location to lay their eggs.

Prior to moving into your home, house spiders inhabited around garden areas, shrubs, bushes, and mounds of organic trash.

As spiders pursue their prey indoors, they enter through spaces they locate around windows and doors, in exterior walls, through holes in the roof, or any other entry point they uncover.

Where will I find house spiders?

House spiders are excellent climbers and construct their webs in the nooks and crannies of walls, windows, and doors.

Partnering with 24h Pest Pros and applying the following spider preventive tips can help you avoid spider-related issues.

  • Immediately remove spider webs from the corners of your home. Believe it or not, this will irritate the spiders and lead them to seek out a new home.
  • If you find house spiders in your home, you should vacuum them up.
  • To keep spiders outside of your home, seal cracks and fissures in the foundation, external walls, and places around air conditioners.
  • Replace white outdoor lightbulbs with yellow or LED lightbulbs, which are less enticing to the insects that spiders devour voraciously.
  • Maintain your yard. Cut the grass short. Prevent shrubbery from becoming overgrown and keep it pruned away from the external walls of your property.
  • Ensure that your home's storage areas are clean, orderly, and devoid of clutter.
  • Utilize plastic containers with lockable lids for home storage. Boxes made of cardboard are readily accessible to spiders and serve as excellent hiding places.
  • Utilize dehumidifiers and air conditioners to keep your home's humidity levels low.
