If you're reading this article in the summer, you can expect spiders to be in your New Jersey home. If you are reading this article in fall, winter, or spring, you can also expect spiders to be in your New Jersey home. It is sad but true. Spiders are a year-round problem. Granted, you're going to have a lot fewer run-ins with spiders in the winter, but they are still in your home. There are many species of spider that like to live in your Jersey home with you. They like it so much, entomologists call them "house" spiders. Today, we're going to look at what factors attract these spiders to your home and what you can do to get rid of them.

Why you may have a spider problem in and around your home

While every spider is a little different, most spiders are attracted to vegetation. This is because the food they eat can be found in vegetation. Spiders feed on bugs. They nibble on aphids and scales as those insects nibble on your plants. They nibble on mosquitoes as they attempt to hide in your plants. They nibble on beetles as they explore the plants in your landscaping and go from rock to rock. Wolf spidersjumping spiders, and black widow spiders will mostly stay low to the ground and snatch up crawling bugs. Orb weavers and many house spiders will usually establish webs in high places to catch flies, mosquitoes, and gnats. But all spiders will get into vegetation when possible. Your landscaping can be a buffet for spiders.
Since landscaping is the trouble area that many pests target, it isn't possible to completely remove what attracts them—we're assuming you like having your flowers, ornamental plants, bushes, and other vegetation. Fortunately, you don't have to remove your plants to stop bugs and the spiders that eat them. When you have year-round pest control service, you get routine treatments applied to this trouble area and an overall reduction of pest activity around your home.

Home pest control for the win!

When you invest in pest reduction around your home, you also invest in home pest control. The fewer bugs you have exploring your foundation perimeter, the fewer bugs you'll have getting into your home. This is the best kind of pest control because it is proactive, not reactive. You don't wait till you've already gotten sick from a tick bite. You don't wait till you've already had thousands of dollars in termite damage. You don't wait till mice and rats have spread fleas around your home or infected your food with E. coli or Salmonella. You get those pests before they get into your home.
