Residents often notice a large number of spiders in their homes when the temperature begins to warm. While troublesome, this increase is common and, like other insects, spiders multiply in the spring and summer months.
Since a spider’s diet consists mainly of flies and other small insects, they tend to multiply as the insect population increases. While it is not unusual for people to see spiders on occasion during the cold winter months, they typically see more of them during spring and summer. Pesticides are ideal for ridding a home of spider infestations, and pest control companies can offer advice on eliminating the growing population of spiders inside a home.
