Spiders are pests that can strike fear into someone's heart just by appearing in their home. Even if most spiders are relatively harmless, their physical appearance is enough to trigger a strong, fearful response. So doesn't keeping them out of your Reno home make sense?

Our technicians at Frontier Pest Control are experts in spider control in Reno, Nevada. In this post, we'll share our knowledge and show you everything you need to know about keeping spiders out of your home. Learn how to keep your home safe from spiders, and remember to call Frontier Pest Control for your Reno pest control needs.

Characteristics Of A Spider

There are over 45,000 types of spiders in the world, ranging in color, shape, size, and other physical characteristics. However, all types of spiders have a handful of definitive traits in common; they have eight legs, bodies divided into two segments, and boast silk-making spinnerets. 

Some of the actions and behaviors we associate with these pests aren't present in every species. For example, while every spider has spinnerets, not all species produce webs. Likewise, while spiders are carnivores, some also feed on plants.

Understanding spiders in Reno and their behaviors is critical to effective spider control. That's why you should call on Frontier Pest Control.  During an inspection, we'll search your property to uncover pest activity and identify the factors that attracted it. Call us today for your free consultation and inspection.

A Spider Infestation Often Indicates A Bigger Problem

When a pest moves into your home, it's looking for shelter, food, water, or some combination of the three. When they move indoors, something in their environment has changed. Spiders are no different, but a spider infestation usually means you have other problems.

Spiders hunt to survive and aren't likely to stay in a habitat where they can't get a meal. If you have spiders living in your home, it could mean you have other pest problems supplying them with food. Other factors may bring them inside, but they won't stay without access to prey.

If you have multiple pest problems, our pros at Frontier Pest Control can take care of things. Our comprehensive treatment plans will target your home inside and out to remove pests and keep them outside where they belong. Our treatment plans are custom-made to fit each customer's needs.

Naturally Effective Spider And Pest Prevention Tips

Spider prevention techniques can help you reduce the risk of suffering an infestation. Thankfully, these methods are easy to implement and mostly require a simple change in habit. Here's what you can do to make spiders stay away:

  • Repair any cracks in the exterior of your home.

  • Fix holes in your window screens.

  • Remove clutter from your lawn. Clutter gives spiders a place to hide and could bring them close to your home.

  • Destroy spider webs throughout your home as you find them. Spiders are less likely to stay in a spot where they can't keep webs.

These are just a few ways you can spider-proof your home. When you hire Frontier Pest Control to tackle your pest problems, we'll show you a variety of steps you can take to keep pests out of your home. We want to help every customer live a pest-free life.
