The Ultimate Spider Prevention Guide For Justin Homes

Spiders are both household pests and essential to our ecosystems. In their natural habitats, they are nature's pest controllers. They prey on flies and mosquitoes, both nuisances we prefer to avoid, and they are fascinating creatures that spin intricately stunning webs. 

If spiders were to disappear suddenly, it would have profound consequences. Insect populations could explode, impacting crop agriculture and the food chain and leading to an increase in insect-borne diseases.

Still, these eight-legged critters arguably deserve their reputation as unwanted home invaders, as they can cover our ceilings and corners with unsightly, dust-collecting webs, and some species can inflict painful and potentially dangerous bites.

In this article about spider control in Justin, TX, you will learn everything you need to know about these arachnids thanks to the Adams Exterminating experts. You will discover why some spider bites are worse than others and determine which spider prevention tips and professional strategies are best to eliminate infestation.

Some Spider Bites Are Worse Than Others

The severity of the bites that Texas spiders can inflict will vary based on factors like the spider species and your reaction to its venom. Most spider bites are not life-threatening. Still, some can be more painful and potentially dangerous.

The two most notorious and venomous spiders in Justin are the brown recluse spider and the black widow spider.

Brown recluse spider bites can cause tissue damage and necrotic skin lesions. This species is reclusive and often hides in dark places. Because of that, you might not even know you are near one until a bite occurs. While they only attack if they feel threatened, all it can take is you pressing unknowingly against one while putting on clothes or shoes. The severity of the bite can vary. Some will only experience mild symptoms. Others may suffer from severe tissue necrosis.

Black widow spiders, on the other hand, inject a neurotoxic venom as they bite. It can cause muscle pain and cramps but can progress to breathing problems. A black widow spider's bite is often intensely painful. You will typically find this species outdoors in wood piles and outdoor sheds.

Spider Prevention Tips That Work

Preventing spider infestations is the best way to avoid spider bites, as they can't attack if they are away from your property.

Here are some practical spider prevention tips that work:

  • Keep your home clean and clutter-free. Spiders love to hide in cluttered and dusty areas. They are excellent spots for them to build webs undisturbed. Keeping up with your household chores and remembering to spend time in your basement and attic can make a significant difference in keeping spiders and their webs at bay. It will also help you spot insect populations early before they have time to attract predatory arachnids.
  • Seal cracks and openings. When provided with what they need to thrive, spiders will enter your home through the tiniest gaps. Inspecting your home for entry points and sealing them is essential to keep pest populations minimal.
  • Install screens and tight-fitting door sweeps. When properly maintained, they will prevent spiders from crawling inside. We recommend checking screens for tears and holes regularly.
  • Reduce outdoor lighting. Light attracts insects, and where there are insects, spiders often follow. Yellow or sodium vapor lights are less attractive to unwanted pests, and motion-sensor lighting can keep them off when you don't need them. 
  • Remove outdoor debris and vegetation. Spiders are outdoor creatures. If they come inside your home, it typically is because you have habitats nearby, like firewood and compost piles or overgrown plants that provide them with bridges into your house.
  • Ask us about natural repellents. Some products, like essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, or citrus, might help deter spiders. They can be a valuable addition to professional barriers around the perimeter of your home. They can also add a pleasant scent to your surroundings.

Not all types of spiders are harmful. In fact, most are beneficial in controlling other insect populations. However, there are no good reasons to put up with them on your property if they cause you anxiety or add to your household chores. 

Adams Exterminating can help if you have concerns about venomous spiders like the brown recluse or black widow or want to keep arachnids away but need more than basic maintenance strategies. If you suspect a significant spider infestation or see potentially dangerous spider species, it is time to get help from the pros.

  • Do you offer termite control?

    Yes, both our Home Guardian and Home Guardian Plus plans offer termite control using the proven Sentricon® System with Always Active™ along with a termite service warranty.

  • How long do I have to stay out of my home or property after treatment is performed?
    In situations where you have to be out of the property during and after treatment (flea treatment, roach clean-out service, or for health reasons, etc.), we recommend that you stay away until all products have completely dried. This is usually approximately two to four hours depending on conditions, after which time it is completely safe to re-enter the property.
  • I have a baby/toddler… is it safe to have treatment?
    While the products we use are toxic to insects, they pose almost no serious risk to people when used properly. However, it is always advisable to be careful when using chemicals around small children, including pesticides. If you have a small child, we recommend staying away from the treatment area while the service is being performed and then wait until the product has dried.
  • What are the steps to take prior to receiving flea treatment?
