Habits And Behaviors Of Common Spiders

There are over 40,000 different kinds of spiders in the world. You can expect a wide range of habits and behaviors from many species. However, spiders in Tennessee houses have some traits in common. These include:

  • Building webs throughout their environment: Webs allow spiders to capture prey and provide shelter and protection. Most spiders who can live comfortably indoors produce webs.

  • A preference for dark locations: Spiders have incredible eyesight that allows them to see in the dark. Naturally, they use this to their advantage; remaining in darkness lets them safely hide from predators while keeping an eye out for prey.

  • Avoidance: While some spiders are aggressive hunters, they know when to pick their fights, especially around humans. As a result, spiders avoid spending time around larger creatures as a survival mechanism. 

Knowing spider behaviors is necessary to exterminate them effectively. Our team at Urbanex uses its knowledge of spider behaviors to identify where they are most likely to hide throughout your home. Our comprehensive inspections will find the source of any infestation.

Why Spiders Invade Homes

Spiders in Tennessee are like spiders everywhere; they enter our homes for food, shelter, or water. Your home already provides adequate shelter; whether it meets the other needs depends on your housekeeping skills.

Spiders feed on other pests, like flies and mosquitos, and drink from any accessible water source, like leaky pipes. If you fail to address those problems, it dramatically increases the chances of spiders entering your home and making a nest. Our Urbanex technicians can help you identify elements in your home that spiders find welcoming and provide solutions to remove them.

Natural Spider Prevention Tips For Around Your Home

Spider prevention isn't expensive or complicated, but it does require you to develop certain habits. Mostly, these are about keeping your living space clean to avoid attracting spiders or their prey. Act on these tips now to save yourself a headache in the future:

  • Pick up around your yard: Spiders who have moved onto your property are at risk of moving into your home. Remove anything that gives ample shelter, like overgrown plants, grass, and wood piles.

  • Repair your window screens: Many spiders are small enough to fit through even tiny tears in a mesh screen or cracks in the glass. Repairing your windows will block an easy access point for these and other pests.

  • Address moisture problems around your home: Damp conditions attract spiders and their prey. Take the time to address any leaks throughout your home, even minor ones, to minimize the chances of attracting either.

Your prevention methods will vary depending on your home's conditions. However, our Urbanex professionals can help you take out the guesswork. In addition, we perform comprehensive inspections so you'll know what preventive steps to take in the future.
