As a homeowner, controlling all pests that may make their way into your home is important. After all, you should feel comfortable in your own space. This is why you should consider these tips for controlling spiders both indoors and outdoors to ensure that they do not invade the corners of your home:

  • Vacuum All Areas: Every once in a while, you should consider vacuuming all areas of your home, which include the corners of the floors and ceiling. You should also vacuum window sills, the attic, and the basement as thoroughly as possible, utilizing the vacuum hose. Once you have finished vacuuming, be sure that you empty out the canister outdoors.
  • Keep Firewood Outdoors: Storing firewood indoors is not the best idea. This is because you could potentially be bringing in spiders that will then make their way into other areas of the home. Instead, only bring firewood indoors when it is ready to be used right away.
  • Use a Power Hose: If there is an area of the exterior of your home that has a large number of spider webs, then you should consider renting a power hose. This hose can be used to wash away the spider webs from this area while you can stand at a safe distance to protect yourself from getting wet, or for spiders to use you as a shelter. This is going to remove spiders, as well as any nests that are settled there.
  • Install LED Lights: Since bright outdoor lighting attracts a large number of insects, it in turn attracts a large number of spiders. Consider installing LED lights to ensure that you keep these insects away and thus prevent spiders from becoming attracted to your home.
