It’s easy to understand why so many people have a fear of spiders—they look downright frightening! The truth is that most of these pests are totally harmless, and actually are more beneficial for the environment than you may be willing to accept. That said, no one wants them taking over their property, especially when more dangerous arachnids are involved. At TermMax Pest Control, we have the expertise to protect you and your family from spiders year-round.

Indoor vs. outdoor spiders
House spiders are drastically different than spiders found outdoors, and it’s important to understand the difference between the two. For the most part, the outdoor variety accidentally enter buildings through cracks and other openings; occasionally, they may be carried in on items like plants, furniture, boxes, and firewood. House spiders, on the other hand, have most likely been inside of your home for years.
Preventing spiders in your property
Most arachnids prefer hiding in dark and undisturbed areas, and will only bite when provoked, squished, or pinched. Regular vacuuming and sweeping of windows, corners, storage areas, and basements can help control the population. When cleaning out boxes or rifling through materials in dark areas, be wary of hiding spiders.
