While encountering a couple of spiders in your home is completely normal, especially in the fall when temperatures start to drop, a complete house infestation can be a very large problem that requires the help of a spider pest control company. This can be especially troublesome if you are sharing your home with a large number of dangerous spider species such as a black widow or brown recluse. If you notice the following three signs, it’s likely you have an infestation on your hands.
1. Finding Spiders
It’s safe to assume that if you see a lot of spiders in your home on a consistent basis that you have a problem on your hands. While some spiders might be seen scaling walls or crawling by a window, they may also be hiding where you can’t see them. It is important that you check your closet, garage, attic, and behind furniture to see if any spiders are hidden in the shadows.
2. Recurring Webs
Just like a spider or two is no need for concern, finding a single web in your home does not always mean you are dealing with a full-blown infestation. However, if there are a lot of webs throughout your home this might mean there are a lot of spiders as well. Additionally, if webs appear again in the same spots you just cleaned recently, it means there are active spiders living in your home.
3. Egg Sacs
One of the most apparent signs that your home is infested with spiders is finding an egg sac. Since these sacs can hold hundreds of eggs, you will need to contact an exterminator right away to help you rid of the sac before the eggs hatch. It is a good idea to search your home for any more of these nests to get a good idea of how widespread the infestation is.
