Pest Entry: These pest usually gain access to buildings through windowsills, basements, and other ground level areas. They generally tend to stay outdoors, as most require constant moisture to survive, but they will enter areas that have lots of moisture like basements and kitchens.
Environment: Most of these pests require lots of moisture to survive, so they can usually be found outdoors underneath rocks and logs. But on occasion they will make their way indoors if the conditions are favorable. They generally have a preference for dark enclosed spaces and are often found in basements, kitchens, bathrooms, crawlspaces, and on windowsills.
Health/Damage Concerns: Spiders are a health risk because certain species are poisonous. If bitten by an unknown spider it is recommended that you seek immediate medical attention.
Home Remedies: The risk of these pests can be greatly reduced by eliminating standing water in yards and basements, and by using dehumidifiers in damp areas of a building. Also, try to leave about 6 inches of space between the building foundation and any mulch that may surround it. Mulch holds moisture and can allow pests easier access to the building.
