Spider Control – what can you do to control spiders from becoming a problem in your home? Many of us have a fear of spiders because they are creepy. We have all heard of the black widow spider or the tarantula, two of the three spiders that can be harmful to humans. In the US, there are only a few cases per year when spiders harm humans.

Spiders weaver spider webs to as a way of catching their prey – these webs have sticky surfaces that are perfect for capturing insects.

Because of this, you might not want to remove spiders unless you have them in your home or perhaps your basement or attic, and that bothers you.
Spiders build their webs in areas that are not cleaned regularly. These are areas like basements, windows, and under furniture. Spiders can make their way into your home through cracks in the foundation, open doors and windows. One of the most common spiders is the American house spider. Some spiders can be harmful or even fatal to humans. However, as I indicated above, deaths from spiders in the United States are infrequent.
