Signs of a Spider Infestation

In general, spiders can be found in dark, secluded areas, both in your home and garden. When trying to get rid of spiders in your home or business, ensure that you wear appropriate protective clothing - like gloves - to prevent falling victim to a spider bite.

  • Look for spider webs - The size and shape of spider webs vary by species. Some are orb-shaped while others are funnel-shaped.
  • Some spider species live in burrows rather than webs, while others are free-ranging and take refuge in crevices.
  • Some species of spiders are attracted to moist environments.  Check your basements, walls, sheds and other damp locations.
  • Other species can be found in places such as attics, the junction of a wall and ceiling, closets and storage boxes.
  • Spiders feed on other insects and prey on antsflies, woodlice and other spiders, so where there is a plentiful supply of other insects, spiders will wait to find their next meal.

As the temperature drops in Autumn, spiders become more active, looking for a mate, and come out of their hiding places. Towards the end of Autumn many die off, but some hibernate until the following Spring.

Spider eggs are laid into a silken sac, on average about 100 eggs in each sac, which may be fixed to a surface, hidden in the web or carried by the female. Signs of the sacs fixed indoors indicate that soon there will be more spiders around.
