Maryland Spider Control
House spiders, while not as dangerous as they seem, can become a problem if left unchecked. Once one female builds her nest, she can lay almost 400 eggs at a time. While most house spiders are completely harmless to humans, some can pose a health risk. These require thorough and immediate extermination. To protect your home or business from spiders in Maryland, you need to learn about the behavior of this pest, take steps for prevention, and find effective treatment options should an infestation occur.
The Spider’s Behavior Patterns
When spiders first move into your Maryland home or business, they will try multiple locations for their web until they find the ideal place. This will often be areas exposed to an air current, as this directs prey to their web explain the MD pest control experts at Viking Pest.
Spiders will leave the unused webs behind, meaning your space might fill up fast with dusty webs.
Once they do find their ideal location, spiders will most often be in basements, garages, window frames, closets, and upper corners. The female will then start laying eggs, laying more than 400 eggs. This is why it is important to catch a possible spider infestation early, so you can implement proper spider control and prevent an infestation from occurring.
