Types Of Spiders Often Found In Redding
For most people, seeing a spider will send them running in the other direction or looking for a long stick to swat it. The last thing they want to do is get close to it. But if they did, they would see that not all spiders are the same.
Here in Redding, we have many different species of spiders that call our area home. These spiders include:
- Black widow spiders
- Brown recluse spiders
- Daddy long legs
- Orb weaver spiders
- Wolf spiders
- Yellow sac spiders
Of these species, the most dangerous spiders are the black widow and the brown recluse. A bite from either of these requires immediate medical attention.
A Spider Infestation Often Indicates A Bigger Problem
Having spiders in your home is uncomfortable already, and that is before you think about why they have chosen your home. Unfortunately, one of the main reasons for a spider infestation is other pests they can hunt.
A spider infestation in your home is typically an indication of a more significant pest issue. Pests like ants, flies, crickets, moths, and beetles are all common prey for spiders. If you see spiders in your home, you need to be on the lookout for other pests that are attracting them.
Five Simple Tips For Preventing Spiders
Whether spiders are as scary or dangerous as you think they are or just a nuisance pest, you don’t want them around your home. Fortunately, you can take steps to keep these spiders out of your home.
Here are five simple tips for preventing spiders around your Redding home:
- Eliminate areas of clutter that could serve as harborage areas for spiders.
- Seal cracks and crevices in the exterior of your home where spiders could get inside.
- Remove potential water sources by repairing pipes, clogged gutters, and leaking hoses.
