How To Keep Spiders Out Of Your Orange County Home


It is concerning to find a spiderweb near your home. It makes you wonder if spiders are around and looking for ways to invade your home. Finding these eight-legged pests indoors is even worse, as it only confirms your fears. We are here today with some good and bad news. The good news is that the spiders around your home are probably not as dangerous as you think they are. The bad news is that they regularly invade properties in our area and are a serious nuisance to area homeowners. To help you keep spiders out of your Orange County home, here are some things to consider today.

Are All Spiders Dangerous?

All spiders are dangerous to the insects that they catch and eat. Only a select couple of spiders that live in our area pose a serious risk to human health: black widows and brown recluses. These two invasive arachnids have powerful venom that not only can be painful but also can come with a laundry list of symptoms. Thankfully, both of these dangerous spiders are not considered common home-invading pests. That said, they will get inside from time to time, so use caution.

Tip One: Keep Things Tidy

Some spiders hunt for their prey from the ground. One common ground spider that might invade your home is the wolf spider. What do wolf spiders eat? Well, like other spiders, they live on insects, arthropods, and sometimes other spiders. To make your living areas less attractive to spiders and the pests they invade to hunt, keep things as clean and tidy as possible. This should involve a deep clean once a month, the removal of clutter, and the organization of your home and storage areas.

Tip Two: Turn Off Your Lights At Night

Many pests that spiders hunt are drawn to homes by exterior lights. This is a simple problem to address. All you have to do is turn off your exterior lights at night. Another great option is to invest in insect-resistant bulbs that emit a softer, yellow light. 

Tip Three: Knock Down Webs

The more webs there are around your home’s exterior, the more likely spiders will be to invade your living areas. We recommend doing a sweep around your home once a week, using a long broom to knock down any webs you find. Leave this broom outdoors as it may contain spiders or spider egg sacs by the time you are done.

Tip Four: Seal Your Home’s Exterior

One great way to prevent spiders in Orange County is to seal your home’s exterior. This involves filling in holes, gaps, and cracks in your home’s foundation using a caulking gun; making sure your window/door screens are in good working order; and repairing damaged weatherstripping and door sweeps. In addition to this, do your best to keep unscreened windows and doors closed when they are not in use.
