Spiders are common pests found in homes and businesses in Tennessee. While they play a vital role in the environment, they have no place inside your home or business. To keep them away, you should ensure your windows and doors have no gaps that spiders can use to enter your indoor space. You should also keep your lights off at night because lights attract insects, which are food sources for spiders.
It's also best to eliminate clutter in your home or business because spiders can hide in clutter to remain undetected. While these steps can effectively deter spiders, perimeter pest control treatments remain the best way to keep these creepy crawlers out of your home or business. These treatments will form a barrier on the perimeter of your building to ensure spiders remain outside where they belong.
Fill in any gaps or cracks in your windows and doors.
If you want to keep spiders out of your home or business, your initial goal should be to ensure they can't gain entry inside. Any gaps or cracks in your windows and doors give spiders an easy way to enter your home or business. Because of this, you should fill in gaps in your windows and doors using caulk or weather stripping. Spiders will find it more challenging to make their way into your home or business when their entry points are blocked.
Torn door screens and window screens can be entry points for spiders. Make sure you repair or replace them!
Keep Your Lights Off at Night
Spiders primarily feed on insects like flies and moths, which are attracted to light. Before you go to bed at night or leave the office, switch off the lights on your property to deter insects from coming inside. By keeping these insects out of your home or business, you'll be taking away a spider's food source, which will help keep them out, too!
Keep your home or business free of clutter.
Spiders are always in search of hiding spots to protect themselves from predators. Unfortunately, the clutter in your home or business is the perfect place for them to hide. If you don't like sharing your home or business with these pesky creepy crawlers, you must keep your property free of clutter like:
- Piles of clothes
- Cardboard boxes
If you can't get rid of these things, make sure you store them in tight containers. By maintaining a clean and orderly space in your home or business, you're taking away areas where spiders can hide and they will be inclined to leave your property.
Schedule Perimeter Pest Control Treatments To Protect Your Home or Business From Spiders
The best way to keep spiders out of your home or business is to schedule perimeter pest control treatments. These treatments will create a protective barrier around your home or business that will keep pests like spiders out. The process typically involves applying the treatments 2 feet up your building and 2 to 3 feet out onto your lawn, ensuring the barrier they create has no gaps where spiders can pass through. What's more, pest control experts will visit your property multiple times throughout the year to reapply the treatments and ensure there is no lapse in protection!
Perimeter pest control treatments can also keep other pests like ants, cockroaches, silverfish, and more out of your home or business.
