We’ve heard it said so many times that spiders are beneficial. They eat insects and other spiders and in so doing, they help rid our home of other unwanted pests. But they can also be scary, unsightly and make us feel worried about our personal safety. While most spiders are not harmful to humans, some species are. If you suspect the spiders in your home are poisonous, for the safety of yourself and your family, you should have them removed right away.
Spiders usually live outside in bushes, dirt, trees, plants and brush. They also live inside sheds, garages, and lawn furniture. Heavy rain can force spiders to seek refuge inside your home. Additionally, spiders eat other bugs, so if you have problems with any other bugs inside your home, spiders will likely be attracted inside to that food source. They will come through openings around your doors and windows, through torn screens and cracks and crevices in your foundation, siding or roof.
