Are You Seeing More Spiders In Your Phoenix Home Lately?

If you feel like your Phoenix home is being taken over by spiders, we understand. Fall is just around the corner and right about now is the time when homeowners start seeing more of these eight-legged pests in and around their homes. So why the sudden increase in arachnids? The truth is they’ve probably been in residence a while.

Spiders are a year-round pest problem in Phoenix

Thanks to Phoenix’s favorable weather, it is the perfect place for year-round spider activity and if your home provides the elements these pests need to survive, there’s a good chance you’ll have uninvited houseguests this fall and probably every other season.

What are the perfect conditions for spiders seeking homes?

The answer to this question is simple – they need food, water, and shelter. Spiders eat insects – flies, roaches, really anything they can catch in their web or hunt down. Spiders drink water wherever and however they can get it – from dew drops to water droplets by the shower to other sources of moisture. Finally, they move indoors in order to find a safe, secure shelter.

If your home provides all three and they can easily get in, congratulations, you will share your home with spiders.

How spiders get into Phoenix homes

Like every other house-infesting bug (and rodent), spiders take advantage of ANY opening on the outside of the house. They’ll slip inside through cracks and gaps caused by weathering and damage. They crawl across the threshold of open doors, wander in via open garages, and enter through holes in screens.  We could probably go on and on listing potential entry points, but we think you get the point.

There’s also the chance you carried them into your home in boxes and bags.

Why your spider problem may seem worse right now

As we already mentioned, spiders are attracted to homes that have bugs. If you’re currently experiencing an active infestation of insects in or around your home, there’s a good chance you’ll see more spiders.

Did we mention fall is typically spider mating season? Aww yes, love is in the air for spiders and that might very well be the reason you’re encountering more of them inside your home than usual.

Testimonials

‟I bought a home, sight unseen (I trusted a VA inspector) in rural Cochise County, AZ.
After moving in I quickly discovered that the home was INFESTED with vermin and BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS!

NW Exterminating installed ‘Desert Guard’ and that took care of ALL of the vermin, and, after a few treatments of Spider Power-Dusting in my crawl space I am free of dangerous spiders!
