Why Are There Spiders in Your House?

Spiders are one of those pests that just rub some people the wrong way. Maybe it’s the number of legs; maybe it’s the webs they spin. Whatever the reason, spiders are just something we’d rather not find in our homes.

Spiders are one of the most common critters found in houses all over the world. If you have them in your house, then you’re probably wondering how to keep them out. While most solutions aren’t completely foolproof, there are several things you can do to help keep spiders away from your house.


Like many home invaders, spiders are naturally drawn to places that are crowded. The more clutter in your home, the easier it is for them to nest and spin webs. 

To take care of this problem, create more open spaces where you live. Put things away, use your storage wisely or get rid of things you don’t need anymore. Not only will it help with the spider problem, it will also have a positive impact on your life.

Clean Up Your Yard

If the spiders aren’t already living in your house, then they are coming in from the outside. Of course, you can’t get rid of every living thing in your yard, but you can make it harder for them to access your house. 

To accomplish this, keep your grass and shrubbery trimmed and your yard mowed. The more unkempt your yard, the more spiders are able to thrive there.

Fill the Spaces

Speaking of access to the outside, spiders are experts at finding the tiniest of gaps to gain entry. Even if you can’t see the gaps, spiders probably can. 

Take the time to do a thorough inspection of any possible opening, looking for gaps, cracks and seams in windows and doorways. If you find any be sure to fill them.

Consult a Professional

If you have done all of these things and the spiders are still getting in your home, then it’s time to up your game. Consulting the professionals at Pinpoint Pest Control can ensure that you’re getting the best experts to take care of spiders or any other pest that might be bothering you.
