SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION House spiders are the most commons spiders found in peoples living areas. They are usually a yellowish brown with a dirty white abdomen and range from 3.8 to 6 mm long. These pests love hanging around areas that are low in traffic such as high corners, closets, and garages. They usually get in homes from small cracks around your home. House spiders produce a large amount of webs and that's what bothers most people. If left alone, they can live for over a year. During a female spiders life, she has the ability to deposit 12 or more egg sacs which each contain 140 to 380 eggs. With the potential of having these many spiders roaming around your home, it's very important that you take care of an infestation right away. Other details of house spiders is that they have very poor eye sight and like to play dead when they feel they are being threatened.

Signs of Infestation:

A house spider infestation is much more troublesome to have than it is life threatening. The first thing you'll notice if you have such a problem are an increased amount of webs around your home. If house spiders are outside your home they will most often hang around any kind of shrubs because it's a great place to hide. When they are indoors, it is most likely because they are trying to cool themselves down from the summer heat. Another area where house spiders will dwell in are cardboard boxes. If you have lots of insects near or around your home, this could also be another call for house spiders, since this is what they feed on.
