Don’t Let Jumping Spiders Spring In!
Jumping spiders are a common type of spider found in New York homes. Even though these spiders are usually harmless, they can still be a nuisance.
In this blog post, we will explore jumping spiders, the risks they pose to your home, and how to prevent them from getting inside during the spring. We will also discuss why you should enlist the help of a pest control company to get rid of jumping spiders.
What are Jumping Spiders?
Jumping spiders are a type of spider that are known for their jumping abilities. They have four pairs of eyes and are usually small, measuring around 1/4 to 3/4 inches in length. They are usually brown or black in color and have a fuzzy appearance.
The Risks of Jumping Spiders in New York Homes
As we mentioned, jumping spiders are usually harmless to humans, but they can certainly still be pests if they get into your home. Most often, they can be found in gardens and near windows, and can easily make their way inside if they find a crack or gap in your home’s foundation or doors. Once inside, they can quickly multiply, creating a larger spider infestation.
How to Prevent Jumping Spiders from Getting in Your Home During the Spring
Preventing jumping spiders from getting inside your home can be a challenge, especially during the spring when they are most active. However, there are some steps you can take to reduce the risk of an infestation:
- Seal any cracks or gaps in your home’s foundation, doors, and windows.
- Keep your home clean and clutter-free. Jumping spiders are attracted to clutter and debris, so keeping your home tidy can help reduce the risk of an infestation.
- Use a vacuum with a hose attachment to remove any spiders that you see. Be sure to dispose of the bag or empty the canister outside of your home.
- Keep your yard tidy. Jumping spiders are often found in gardens and other outdoor areas, so keeping your yard free of clutter can help reduce the risk of an infestation.
