The Good and the Bad

Spiders outside your home can provide a beneficial service; they eat other insects such as silverfish, flies, wasps, cockroaches as well as many other insects.

However, when found inside your home, this is an entirely different matter. For once inside they set up housekeeping, and they intend to stay. This is where they find ample sources of food (other insects), and a source of water (that is why you will find them in your sink or bathtub). Your home will also provide the ideal shelter to protect them from the hot summer days. Spiders have a waxy film covering their bodies. If they are exposed to high temperatures this waxy film becomes semi-fluid causing them to lose vital fluids. It is the springtime temperatures inside your home or garage that provide the perfect shelter during the heat of a summer day.

Many people do not realize that spiders are nocturnal; this means they are very active at night: they do not remain idle. They are hunters looking for their meal or midnight snack. While their primary source for food consists of other insects, if disturbed they can and will bite you, your family, or pets. They can even end up in your bedroom. Few things are more frightening than waking up in the darkness of night and seeing their beady red eyes staring right at your face. There it is poised and ready to jump right at you. It takes little imagination to know what happens next…and it is not pleasant.

Now that the warmer summer days are nearly here, it is time to take preventive action. This is not the time to second-guess a pending spider infestation. Call Thad today for prompt and reliable treatment that works.
