Signs You May Have a Spider Infestation

Eek! Spider infestations can be quite an annoyance, especially if it’s an infestation. Although most spiders are harmless, seeing them in large quantities can certainly be an issue.

Daddy Long Legs are some of the most common types of spiders you may encounter in your home. Quick fun fact: Although Daddy Long Legs are the most poisonous spider, their fangs are too short to bite into humans (whew!)

Here’s more information about spider infestations, and some signs you may have an infestation on your hands:

  • Spiders can come from pine trees and glide from their web into the house
  • Look for spider webs - The size and shape of spider webs vary by species
  • Check moist environments like basements, walls, sheds and other damp locations. This is where certain species of spiders can be found.
  • Look for areas where a lot of insects gather like ants, flies, woodlice, and other spiders since this is their main source of food
  • Nesting material such as shredded paper, fabric, or dried plant matter
