Generally speaking, spiders want to have as little to do with humans as possible. Moreover, contrary to a lot of people’s concerns, very few species have bites that are harmful to us. Even though our region is home to hundreds of different species, the incidence of dangerous bites is very low. Having said that, spiders are still attracted to the dark, concealed corners in our attics. And on the hottest days, your attic may well get hot enough to drive spiders to cooler living areas downstairs. What’s more, moisture helps spider eggs survive and therefore hatch in greater numbers. That’s a significant problem for homeowners here in the wet Seattle area. In other words, you’re still going to want to have effective spider control for your home.
Ultimately, it’s almost impossible to completely exclude spiders from your home, because they can slip through very small entries. And our homes provide excellent shelter and safety from prey. That means that possibly the best technique for spider control at your disposal is general pest control. Keep your house clear of the bugs spiders like to eat, and they’ll have much less reason to come inside. But that can be hard to accomplish for the same reason it’s difficult to keep spiders out.
