West Palm Beach's Complete Guide To Effective Spider Control

spider close up

We have quite a variety of spider species in West Palm Beach. Some can't bite you. They're just creepy houseguests. Some are able to bite, but they only leave an itchy welt on your skin. Some can cause a painful bite that is similar to the sting of a wasp. But these bites don't come with other symptoms. The two kinds of spiders to be most concerned about are widow spiders and recluse spiders. Black and brown widow spiders can make you very sick, and brown recluse spiders have a venom that can cause necrosis.

Spider Prevention Tips

Today, we're going to give you a complete guide for effectively controlling spiders around your West Palm Beach home. Let's get right into it!

Web Removal

One of the most important ways you can get control of spiders is to remove webs. Do you know why? Because a spider web can have an egg sac on it. Some spiders can have hundreds of eggs in a sac. Every single one of those eggs is another spider that could be crawling around in your landscaping and accidentally getting into your home. Do an inspection and remove any webs you find.

Remove Pathways

The reason spiders get into your home is that they can. No spider sits outside of your home and thinks, "I bet there's some tasty food in there." Spiders get into your home by accident. If you make it more difficult for spiders to get in, you'll have fewer issues with spiders on the inside of your home.

  • Use a caulking gun to fill in holes created by wood-damaging pests, or to seal gaps.
  • Repair or replace weatherstripping around doors, and door sweeps at the base of doors.
  • Fix screens that have been damaged.
  • Seal gaps in the frames around windows.
  • Repair broken glass panes.
  • Seal cracks in foundation walls.
  • Seal gaps around foundation penetrations.

Address Food Sources

This is the big one. Spiders don't come into your yard by accident. They're usually drawn in by a food source. Do you know what spiders eat? Bugs. They eat lots and lots of them. Some spiders prefer the bugs that crawl on the ground. Some prefer the bugs that fly through the air. Some eat both. If you reduce bugs, you'll reduce the primary food source of spiders. Here are a few ways to do it.

  • Bag your trash and put it in covered containers and routinely clean the containers.
  • Reduce moisture around your home. There are many bugs that are attracted to moist conditions.
  • Reduce exterior lights or switch to yellow lights. White lights are insect magnets.
  • Rake your yard and remove organic clutter.
  • Trim your grass, bushes, and shrubs. This reduces moisture and reduces the number of places pests can hide.
  • Move bird feeders well away from your exterior. Seeds that drop to the ground are highly attractive to many pests that spiders eat.
