Have you ever seen a spider in your house? Chances are you have, but the real question is, what do you do when you find one? Do you catch it and put it outside, or just ignore it? Some typical household spiders can grow pretty large, so it makes sense that people don’t want to deal with them inside their homes.
Sometimes the action taken can depend on whether or not you know the spider is dangerous. Many people are able to identify harmless types of spiders, like the Daddy Long Leg. But what about those creepy crawlers that you can’t tell what kind they are? Some spiders prefer to live outside, but can accidentally wander inside the home and set up camp there. Other types are just as content making their web inside your house as they are anywhere outside.
If you notice spiders in your home, it’s best to look out for other signs of a possible infestation, like cobwebs in doorframes or windows, and abandoned webs in other places. Luckily there are steps you can take to prevent spiders from entering your house. Try to ensure all windows and doors are properly sealed at all times. Seal any gaps or cracks that lead from inside to the outdoors, and finally, keep your home free of debris and clutter.
