Spider Identification & Prevention In Chesapeake, VA

What are spiders?

Like mites, ticks, and scorpions, spiders are part of the class Arachnida. Arachnids share similar physical characteristics, including two body regions, eight jointed legs (on adults), and a lack of wings and antennae. Spiders produce silk, though not all spiders use silk to build webs. Spiders also have between six and eight eyes and fangs they use to inject venom to subdue their prey or protect themselves from predators and other threats.

There are tens of thousands of different spider species living worldwide; some live in very close proximity to people. If you detect signs of spiders in your home, reach out to us and request immediate home pest control services today!

Are spiders dangerous?

The good news is that most of the spiders that make their way into our Virginia homes are common house or garden spiders; they pose no real danger to people. While all spiders have venom, most have venom only potent enough to harm their insect prey, not larger mammals like people. If you are ever concerned that you have a dangerous spider in your home, it is important to contact a professional who can accurately identify them and provide you with effective treatment to eliminate them.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders are pests that homeowners in Virginia and across the country have to contend with throughout the entire year. Our yards provide spiders with the perfect places to burrow, create their webs, and hunt for prey. While spiders do like to live outdoors, when there is a lack of food, water, or they need a safe place to lay their eggs, they won’t hesitate to move into our homes.

Where will I find spiders?

You will find spiders active throughout the entire year, either outside our yards or inside our homes or other structures. Spiders are naturally reclusive, so they prefer to live and hang out in dark, quiet areas. In addition, they, like other predators, like areas that put them in regular contact with their prey.

Spiders and insects gather in trees, dense landscaping, gardens, outdoor eating areas, and around trash cans and outdoor light fixtures in our yards. In our homes, basements, kitchens, bathrooms, and the corners of windows and doors are popular hangouts for spiders.

How can I prevent spiders in the future?

Prevent issues with spiders by partnering with us at Hawk Mosquito & Pest and implementing the following recommendations:

  • Cut back dense vegetation from your home’s exterior walls and remove things like woodpiles, leaf piles, and brush piles from your yard where spiders can hide.
  • A lot of the insects that spiders like to eat are attracted to light and moisture. Keep outdoor lights off whenever possible. Repair leaky pipes and irrigation systems and fill in low-lying areas that allow rainwater to collect.
  • Seal spaces in your home’s exterior walls and foundation through which spiders could enter your home.
  • Place mesh covers over vents and use steel wool to seal spaces around wires and pipes entering your home.
