Spiders have been around for millions of years, so it’s no surprise that they’re everywhere. Just because humans and spiders have co-existed for millennia doesn’t mean you want them in your home. Spider extermination services from Lawn Plus Pest Control Services can help keep them out of your home. But how can you tell if you have a problem and need to give us a call? Well, here are three signs spiders are taking over your home. 

3 Signs of a Spider Infestation

1. Egg Sacs

As females age to maturity, they begin to lay eggs. Spiders don’t lay one egg at a time, but rather lay a bunch and wrap them in silk sacs. Once the eggs hatch and the young scatter, they leave the sac behind. If you notice a collection of old sacs or find some throughout your home, you likely have a spider infestation. Furthermore, if you find an egg sac that’s still intact, then make sure you discard it right away. 

2. Webs

Just because you don’t see any spiders in your home doesn’t mean they’re not around. They’re likely staying hidden and scurrying out of sight. But they leave behind evidence of their infestation known as webs. If you start to find cobwebs or freshly built webs inside your home, then you have spiders. Different spider species will build different webs, so you’re likely dealing with two different species if you notice a different pattern or style. 

3. Unexplained Spider Bites

Not all spiders in your home are poisonous, although some are, which means you should be on the lookout for spider bites. While most spiders don’t feed on humans, they will bite if they feel threatened. Because spiders are nocturnal, they tend to scurry around at night, even crawling into your bed. So, if you wake up with a couple of puncture bites, you should wash your sheets and then call an exterminator.
