Someone said the definition of a spider web is a thing you walk into which suddenly turns you into a karate expert!

Whether they are harmless or not so harmless, most people would rather not have spiders taking up residence in their homes.  Spiders typically enter homes through small gaps and cracks around doors and window frames, poorly screened windows, and other vulnerable areas around the foundation and roof.  Sometimes spiders hitch a ride into your home from items that were kept outside. 

Spiders like to hide in dark areas in order to trap their prey such as other spiders, insects, or flies.  Some spiders like dark moist areas such as basements and crawl spaces.  Other spiders hide in attics, air vents and other warm dry areas. 

There are some protective measures that you can take to minimize spiders in and around your home.  Practically speaking, regular cleaning is one of the best ways to keep spiders at bay.  Regularly taking a long-handled duster to the interior and exterior of your home and any outside buildings will help keep spiders from multiplying.  Making sure that your doors and windows have tight fitting screens will also help minimize spiders and their prey from entering your home. 

You can also protect your home and loved ones by having a professional apply a spider barrier.  A spider barrier is capable of treating those problem areas such as foundations, cracks, windows, doors, and under the eaves of your roof.  A spider barrier works by adhering to the spiders legs as they cross the barrier and then when the spider cleans itself it ingests the product and will no longer be a threat.
