For many of us, when we see a spider in our home often, the first reaction is to be creeped out by them. To get past the “creep out” factor that comes with discovering your new eight-legged friends, it is important to realize, that for the most part, spiders are far more helpful than they are disturbing. So, what exactly are the benefits of allowing such unsettling little critters to remain in our homes? Let’s talk about a few of the reasons you should consider sharing your home with spiders. And when it is time to call a profesional about help addressing your spider problem.
Spiders are in Your Home for a Reason
The number one reason why you have spiders in your house is that they now have a food source. Spiders feed on a vast number of insects that live in your home. They are expert hunters, and it is their skill that helps to keep your home pest free. If you only see an occasional spider in your house, there should not be much to worry about.
What kind of pests do spiders help eliminate in your home?
Your helpful house spiders feast on a wide range of other creepy crawly creatures that bite, sting or fly. Many of which can carry or spread diseases to humans. In your home, the favorite foods of the spider are roaches, flies, fleas, and mosquitoes. All of whom I think we can agree we would want in our homes far less than a spider. So, the next time that you see a spider in the corner of your home. Take a moment and consider that he is protecting your home from far more scary pests that may be seeking entry into your home.
