Spiders Be Gone: A Guide To Keeping Spiders Out Of Your Plymouth Home


The fear of spiders, often referred to as arachnophobia, is one of the most common types of phobias that people all around the world suffer from. Seeing even one spider crawling through their home can trigger an anxiety attack for these people. And while spiders might not make every person feel intense fear, seeing one inside your home could be a cause for concern. 

At Combat Pest Control, we specialize in spider removal and prevention. We have seen many species of spiders sneak into Plymouth homes and know the best way to get them all out. Here is a look at the most effective way to keep spiders away from your home through our effective pest control services in Plymouth.

Spider Behavior: How They Hunt, Feed, And Mate

There are over 3,000 different spider species found across the United States. However, in Plymouth, our spider control specialists usually only encounter about a dozen different types of spiders. 

Spiders like to eat a variety of small bugs and animals, which can include roaches, crickets, moths, and flies. Some spiders will lie in wait and hunt down their prey, while others build thin webs and wait for their prey to get stuck. Once an insect flies or walks into a spider web, it is almost impossible for them to get out. The more the bug struggles, the more tangled it gets in the web. 

While spiders like to eat live animals, they eat a liquid-only diet. They do this by injecting digestive fluids into their prey's body, which essentially turns the bug's insides into liquid. The spider will then drink the internal organs through the small puncture wound. 

When our professional spider exterminators enter a home infested by spiders, they usually find the insect's exoskeleton or hollow body cavity scattered throughout the homeowner's property. 

Symptoms Of Spider Bites: What To Expect And How To Treat

All of the spiders in Plymouth are venomous. They use their venom to subdue their prey. Usually, a spider's venom is not powerful enough to cause significant health problems for humans and animals. However, the black widow and the brown recluse spiders have toxic venom, which is considered poisonous to humans. 

If you get bit by a spider that has a light brown body with a dark violin-shaped marking on its back, or you come into contact with a spider that has a shiny black body with a red marking that is in the shape of an hourglass on its abdomen, you might experience severe symptoms that could require immediate medical attention. Some of the symptoms that have been reported to our spider control experts include:

  • Rapid heart rate

  • High blood pressure

  • Extreme pain at the site of the bite

  • Muscle spasms

  • Fever

  • Excessive swelling

Unless you get close to the spider, it can be difficult for the average person to identify the dangerous spiders. If you are seeing any type of arachnid in your home, you should consult an experienced spider removal expert instead of trying to deal with the problem alone. 

Preventing Spiders In The House: Practical Tips And Tricks

Our professional spider control technicians have seen these creepy arachnids sneak into homes for various reasons. Most of the time, a spider will come into your home in search of food, shelter, or water. One of the easiest ways to keep spiders out of your home is to seal any entry points that you may have around your house. Spiders can slip through some of the smallest crevices and gaps, so be sure that there are no potential entrances around your home.
