Spiders are one of the most problematic pests in the United States. There are 40,000 species of spiders in the world, but not all of them are household pests. These arthropods have eight legs and up to eight eights. In addition to this, they have fangs that can be used to inject venom into their victims. Spiders can extrude silk from their bodies and build webs. Those webs help them trap insects that they’ll later eat. However, some spiders are large enough to consume lizards and birds.
Thankfully, those spiders do not live in Pittsburgh. Most spiders live alone, but some live in communal webs that can house as many as 50,000 individuals.
Homeowners have to worry about the dangers associated with spiders. Most spider bites are harmless, but others are not. Some bites can lead to systemic toxicity and even death. After you’ve been attacked by a spider, it is pertinent to monitor your conditions to ensure you’re going to be okay.
Spiders generally enter homes because they’re searching for food. Some areas of your home are good for insects so spiders will enter to eat them.
Eliminate the spiders outside of your home to stop them from invading your home. Get rid of rocks, compost, and wood. Doing so is a good way to force the spiders off of your property. Don’t forget to fill in all gaps and cracks to prevent spiders from entering your home.

Preventing Spider Problems
It isn’t easy to keep spiders out of your home, but you can stop some of them. First, you need to focus on reducing the spider population outside of your home. Doing so will make a big difference in the long run. Reducing the spider population outside will ensure that there aren’t any spiders invading your home.
