Are You Seeing A Lot Of Spider Webs Around Your Collegeville Home?

When most people think about spider webs, haunted houses, and all things spooky come to mind. However, spider webs aren’t just associated with Halloween and old creaky houses; Spider webs are common in homes with zero ghosts or any other creepy aspects.

Spiders are generally harmless insects that prefer to avoid humans and prey on smaller insects, and that's good news if you’re finding spider webs in your Collegeville home. However, for many homeowners, spider webs are not only an eyesore but also an indicator that a spider has set up shop in or around your home.

Is it possible for humans and spiders to live together in harmony? Well, it’s not recommended. Certain spiders are dangerous to humans if bitten. There are many different types of spiders in Pennsylvania, but here in Collegeville, the wolf spider is the most common in the area. Rarely will you find venomous spiders like the brown recluse and black widow spiders. Regardless, spiders have no place in your Collegeville home.

If you start seeing spider webs frequently appearing in and around your home, you must get your home inspected and treated for spiders by your local Collegeville pest control experts. Our pest control specialists at Terra are highly skilled, knowledgeable, and Pennsylvania-licensed. Our pest control programs strongly emphasize environmentally friendly alternatives that go beyond quick fixes and offer the best long-term solutions. To begin, get in touch with us today.

The More Webs, The More Spiders

Spider webs are sophisticated engineering marvels that are both beautiful and strong. If you accidentally walk into one, you instantly become a master of karate, using various karate chopping moves to remove it. You only really want to know two things after walking into a web: "Is it on me?" and "What kind of spider was it?"

Although it's simple to assume that spider behavior is frequently similar, different species exhibit distinct behaviors, including where and how they construct their webs. You can tell which spider you are dealing with by looking at its webs. Since wolf spiders are the most common in Collegeville, it's crucial to understand that they don't make webs at all; instead, they live in burrows that they occasionally seal with silk webbing. They sometimes fill them with pebbles or twigs to prevent rainwater from entering.

Nonetheless, the more webs you find, the more spiders you have around your home. Therefore, it's a good idea to take proactive measures to stop and control an infestation if you notice a lot of spiders or webs. Here at Terra, we are so sure of the quality of our work that we provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee. To receive your free estimate, give us a call.

What Are Spiders Good For?

Spiders have a lot of advantages. Spiders eat insects as their primary food source, serving as significant predators. Perhaps you've seen a web by the light outside your front door. Think of all the pesky moths, flies, and mosquitoes that this helpful arachnid has kept out of your house. Despite the possibility that some spiders may enter your home, they will likely eat any other insects that may be present.

Although the details of an insect being caught in a sticky web and eaten by an eight-legged arachnid may seem a little gory, spiders help keep the population of other pests in check. Here are a few benefits of having spiders around:

  • Fewer stinging, biting, and blood-feeding insects will bother people
  • Fewer pests are damaging crops
  • Fewer insects transmit disease

These are things that everyone can value. Fear of spiders is a common reaction, and dangerous spider species include brown recluses and black widows. However, most species generally prefer to stay away from human contact. Healthy adults can typically survive spider bites without suffering severe consequences.

Even though you don't want to see any of them inside your house, they still have a beneficial function. The best way to maintain everyone's safety, happiness, and health is to keep spiders outside where they belong. Unfortunately, spiders often enter homes without being invited, necessitating the need to call Terra's pest control experts before a small problem turns into a major one.
