Spiders probably aren’t on the top of everyone’s list of annoying pests, in fact they probably rank below most of the other common pests such as rats and roaches; however they can cause many of the same problems that other pests do and have some traits that make them even worse in many respects than other insects and rodents.
How To Get Rid Of Spiders – A Few Helpful Tips
Destroy Their Webs
For this you will need a cobweb duster and a bit of free time. The way to do this most effectively is to go through your entire house and dust everywhere spiders might be hiding, such as corners, closets and other hidden or out of the way places. You want to be sure to get rid of every web you see, as the spiders will then have little choice but to search out new areas to infest.
Use Spider Repellent & Spray
Getting rid of their webs likely isn’t going to be enough, and you’ll want to invest in a proper spider repellent or spray to make sure that all the spiders in your house are eliminated. Once again you should apply these products wherever the insects might be hiding, closets and storage spaces are a favorite of virtually all species of spider.
Use Spider Traps
Like most other pests, spiders are susceptible to traps. In fact, many of the same varieties of traps that work on flies and roaches are useful against spiders. The most commonly used spider traps are glue based traps, which will capture the insects and not allow them to escape. These will provide effective and complete control of spider problems, especially when combined with the methods mentioned above.

You can also spray inside along the baseboards and in the upper corners and bottom corners of walls. This is especially important in the garage and/or basement.
Spiders and Their Behavior
Generally speaking spiders aren’t as troublesome as other pests in a day to day living environment. They usually only cause issues when there are large numbers of them or they intrude on your daily activities. Other than just being super freaky, one of the bigger threats they pose is biting you while you sleep, as they are usually nocturnal and will occasionally go out searching for food at night.
