What Attracts Spiders to Your Property

Spiders can be attracted to your home or business in search of shelter and if they sense nearby food sources. Smaller insects come into your home looking for food and shelter from the cooler weather, spiders, who feed on these smaller insects, follow them indoors. 

Spiders can squeeze through small crevices around doors and windows or cracks in foundations or siding. They tend to seek out dark, lower-traffic areas like garages, attics, and basements. Many species like to hide, making storage areas with lots of places to hide more ideal. 

How Can I Prevent Spiders from Entering My Home?

Although you will still see the occasional spider, there are lots of things that you can do to make your home less inviting to spiders.

  • Make sure to keep all vegetation, woodpiles, and clutter away from the foundation of your home because they are all ideal spider environments.
  • Avoid the use of landscaping materials such as riverbed rock as the rounded rocks create a cool, damp environment that is favorable to the sorts of insects that spiders often eat.
  • Switch to yellow (sodium vapor) lights, which can reduce the amount of insects overall in your home.
  • Keep your home sealed and free of moisture.
