Spiders

There are over 35,000 known spider species worldwide, but only a handful are considered to be dangerous and 27 species are known to cause human fatalities.

Spiders are attracted to warm, dark small spaces, like wall cracks, corners, air vents and in the washroom. However, some species prefer to stay closer to the outdoors, weaving their webs in your garden or near your outside lighting.

Although most common spiders at home are not really harmful, they can be a nuisance because of their webbing and can induce fear to some people.

FACT: Did you know that fear of spiders is known as arachnophobia? Some people with this phobia will scream, cry, have excessive sweating or even heart trouble when they sighted spiders or their webs.

How Do Spiders Get into Your Premises?

Spiders usually enter homes in two primary ways:

  • Through open and poorly screened windows or doors.
  • Through cracks and gaps around door and window frames.

Most of the time, spiders come inside the home looking for food and shelter. The other common method of entry is accidentally hitchhiking inside boxes, on outdoor items and numerous other things that are brought inside your home or business premises.
