How Professional Pest Control Keeps Florida Homes Spider-Free

February 20, 2019

Have you ever wondered why spiders never go away here in Florida, but they seem to take the fall and winter off in other states? The difference comes down to one word, cold. Spiders need warmth to thrive and, lucky for them, Florida never really runs out of warmth. So unfortunately we can expect spiders to be around our homes looking for ways to get in throughout the year, making your job as a homeowner that much more difficult.

Spiders, More Than A Nuisance

It is true that generally, most spiders pose no real threat to you or your family. This is due to the fact that the majority of spiders are either non-venomous or simply lack the ability to hurt you at all. There are really only two species of spiders that could pose a significant threat to you or your family in Florida; the black widow and the brown recluse. This isn’t to say that the other spiders are welcome, just that they won’t put you into the hospital after a bite.

So Many Easy Ways To Get In

Spiders are naturally stealthy, small, and agile pests. This opens a wide variety of options when they are looking to invade your home. For instance, many pests would find it difficult to invade your home through a centimeter-sized crack in your foundation, but for spiders, it is no issue at all. Anywhere spiders can invade they will. This could be through a small tear in your window screens, under a broken door sweep, or even through a second-story window floating on a strand of silk. If there is a way in, they will take it, but with the right protection, they may not get too far.
