The Trick To Keeping Spiders Out Of Your Orange County Home


Most people do not like finding spiders inside their homes. Finding an egg sac filled with baby spiders is even worse than finding these pests. We are in the business of helping homeowners avoid these uncomfortable situations. Here is the trick to spider pest control in Orange County and how to protect your home year-round. 

Contact Pacific Shore Pest Control if you have an active infestation of these pests and want them out fast. Let us be your best option for quality spider removal.

Characteristics Of Common Spiders

There are many types of spiders here in Orange county. We have tiny spiders that build tiny webs, large spiders that stalk their prey from the ground, and many species in between. Many local species build intricate webs in the corners of rooms, between clutter, or over bushes, trees, and grass. These pests rely on these webs to catch their prey. All other spiders do not build webs but instead hunt from the floor. You will most likely find these species inside your basement or in other dark, secluded areas.

Typically, web spiders have long legs, small bodies, and bulbous abdomens. Ground spiders generally are wide-bodied, have thicker legs, and sometimes have hair. For help with spider identification inside your home, consider scheduling it for a detailed pest inspection. 

Some Spiders Are More Dangerous Than Others

It is unlikely that a dangerous spider will bite you. The chances of this, however, are never zero. Orange County has two species of dangerous spiders: the brown recluse and the black widow. These pests can take up residence inside and around local homes and have incredibly potent venom. A brown recluse’s venom is necrotic and creates an ulcer around areas it bites. A black widow’s venom causes several severe symptoms, some of which are neurological. A brown recluse bite is much more painful if the affected area becomes an ulcer and becomes infected. The only upside is that most brown recluses and black widow bites are dry bites, meaning they do not inject venom when piercing the skin with their fangs. Keeping this in mind, if one of these pests does inject poison into your body, seek medical attention immediately. 

Six Easy And Effective Spider Prevention Tips

If you want to stop spiders from invading your home, you need some form of protection. To start, here are six easy and practical prevention tips:

  1. Seal gaps and cracks around your home’s exterior foundation.
  2. Repair damage to window and door screens.
  3. Ensure all of your home’s weather stripping is in good working order.
  4. Install door sweeps under exterior doors.
  5. Keep unscreened windows and doors closed when you are not using them.
  6. Turn off exterior lights at night to avoid attracting pests spiders invade to hunt.
