Arachnophobia, or the fear of spiders, is one of the most common phobias. These air-breathing arthropods use their fangs to inject venom into their prey and people who accidentally touch them. While most spider bites cause mild itching or swelling, a bite from a black widow or a brown recluse can cause serious medical complications, including death. Common symptoms include severe muscle pain and spasms that can last for weeks.
Controlling these unwanted home invaders is a multi-step process. You can start by identifying openings that enable spiders to gain access to your house. It is essential that you replace or repair missing, cracked or damaged caulking, weather stripping and screens to eliminate potential access points. As with most pests, spiders enter your home in search of food and shelter. Because spiders are predators that eat insects, the best way to control them is to eliminate their sources of food, which typically includes ants and cockroaches. The spiders will leave your house or die from a lack of nutrients. The surface area where spiders typically hide should be treated with a residual pesticide so that it contacts the spider’s body as it squeezes through these opening.
