The sight of a spider often scares the biggest, bravest of men, sending them running scared, though they would never admit it to their wife. Spiders get their bad reputation from their 8 long legs, their quiet, shy, mysterious nature and their potential to bite humans. In Minnesota, Nebraska and all across the Midwest there are several species of spiders that can be seen in homes, cabins and garages, but the most likely spider to be seen in basements, attics and our living room corners is the common household spider and Plunkett’ Pest Control is ready to help you get rid of spiders this year.
House spiders are typically brownish or grayish in color. They are relatively small with a body length of about 1/8” to 3/8”. These spiders are not known to have great eyesight and rely on sensing vibrations in their web to catch their lunch. Their large webs can be found throughout our homes and are commonly found around:
- Ceiling corners
House spiders move indoors when there is an ample supply of other insects to snack on, but will quickly abandon an intricately spun web, when the food supply is not adequate. If you can’t stand the thought of sharing your home or cabin with spiders, don’t worry, there is help.
