Infestation Prevention

Spiders prefer to build their webs in dark out of the way areas near their food source (namely bugs) such as crawl spaces. It is important to remember that spiders are attracted to places where their food source is plentiful. If you remove the other bugs the spiders will leave your building in search of food.

You will often find these pests entering your home through cracks and crevices near doors and windows, so make sure to use a quality sealant or caulk to plug up those areas. You can also install door sweeps on the bottom of each exterior door to block spiders from entering your home.

Many people try DIY pest control solutions like spider traps, such as glue boards, to prevent a spider infestation in their home or office. The issue with this method is that many female spiders stay hidden for much longer than their male counterparts. This means while you may be catching the males, the females are still out there laying egg after egg to replace them.

Spider Species In Georgia

Of the 38 species of spiders in GA, two stand out from the crowd as truly dangerous to humans. Black Widow spiders and Brown Recluse spiders are relatively uncommon in this area.

Identifiable by the violin-shaped marking on its back, the black widow is a shy spider that loves dark corners and often lives near water sources. The brown recluse is recognizable by its six eyes in three pairs and a violin-shaped marking on its head. You may also notice this species has longer legs than other spiders.

These spiders are generally pretty rare in the area. However, they are here and if you experience a bite from them you should contact a health professional.

More commonly seen spiders, such as wolf spiders, joro spiders, jumping spiders, and common house spiders, do occasionally bite. The good news is bites from these more common spiders are harmless to humans. Often, these spider’s webs are more of a nuisance than the spiders themselves.
