Is it time to add a new nursery to your home? The NJ pest control experts at Stern know the start of spring brings the birth of many new things… Including hordes of baby spiders.

Baby Fever

Hanging around the dark corners, your home’s population of house spiders can bring many babies into your home in the spring. These small, brown or grey spiders, which can be up to 3/8-inch large, aren’t poisonous, but they’re far from endearing. The only thing worse than seeing one hanging above or below you on her web is spotting one surrounded by all her babies. And these spiders can lay hundreds of eggs at a time, rapidly ballooning the number of spiders in your home – and all those sticky, hard-to-clean webs.

Why Don’t They Go Forth to Populate?

House spiders hang out in your home rather than moving outdoors because it’s warmer and more hospitable than the outdoor environment. Some have even been hiding out in your home all winter in the basement, attic, closet, utility room, or other secluded areas, where they hunt nuisance insects and other smaller spiders in the dark while you sleep. 

Chances are, your home or business is crowded enough without all those growing families of house spiders. Prevent and eliminate spiders, keeping the spider population under control with the help of the NJ pest control pros at Stern Environmental today.
