You can find many different types of spiders in this part of the state. These creepy arachnids can cause many people to feel instant fear. However, if you see a spider in your home, you shouldn't panic. Instead, you should get the help of an experienced Santa Clarita spider exterminator.  

We have been eliminating spiders in this area since 1998 at CVA Exterminators. We know how to identify various types of arachnids successfully and the best way to keep you and your family safe from the dangerous types of spiders found in Santa Clarita. Here is a look at the best way to keep these creepy and scary creatures out of your home. 

Spider Behavior: How They Hunt, Feed, And Mate

Spiders like to eat insects, but they don't have a set of teeth that allows them to chew their food. Instead, they have to eat a liquid-only diet. They can do this by piercing their prey's body with their sharp fangs and injecting a special digestive compound that turns their prey's internal organs into liquid. 

When it comes to finding a meal, some spiders will build webs around outdoor lighting, in dark and moist areas, or anywhere else that is likely to have insects lurking around. Not all spiders can create webs. These spiders will usually hunt down their prey to get a meal. Most of the time, hunting spiders will lie in wait in a dark area. Some spiders will burrow down under leaves and dirt and wait for their prey to walk by. 

Because spiders are attracted to places that have a high insect population, you should contact a local spider control specialist when you first spot a spider in your home. They will perform a thorough inspection of your house to ensure that you don't also have an insect infestation on your property as well. 

Spider Problems: Why You Don't Want These Arachnids In Your Home

Many of the spiders in Santa Clarita have venom not considered poisonous to humans. And while many spiders won't cause any problems in your home, seeing them around could indicate that you already have a few problem areas on your property. 

Spiders will come into your house if they think they can find a reliable food and water source or if they feel that your home will be a safe place for them to stay. They typically like to hang out in moist, dark areas with plenty of insects. Seeing spiders in your home could indicate that you have moisture issues, gaps and cracks around your home, or an insect infestation.

A professional spider removal team will be able to determine the reason for your sudden spider infestation when they inspect your home. 

Spider-Proofing Tips For Preventing Spiders In The Home

Prevention is a vital part of spider control. Some of the things that you can do to keep spiders out of your home include:

  • Remove clutter in and around your home to eliminate potential hiding spots.

  • Sweep up food crumbs and remove other factors from your home that could attract insects. 

  • Keep the basement, bathrooms, and other humid areas of your home well-ventilated. 

Some species of spiders can lay egg sacs that can contain up to 900 eggs. Once a female spider has decided to take up residence in your home, you will most likely need an experienced spider extermination team to ensure no spider eggs are left in your home after eliminating the adult spiders.
