How to Prevent Spiders?

Preventing a spider infestation is just as crucial as treating one. Here are some useful tips to keep your home or business free from these eight-legged creatures:

  • Maintain cleanliness: Regularly clean your indoor and outdoor spaces. Spiders are attracted to clutter, as it provides them with plenty of hiding spots. Regular cleaning can help reduce these potential habitats.
  • Seal gaps and cracks: Inspect your property for any gaps or cracks that could serve as entry points for spiders. Seal them with silicone caulk or another appropriate material to prevent access.
  • Proper lighting: Spiders are attracted to light as it lures their prey. Use yellow or sodium vapor light bulbs outdoors to attract fewer insects, thereby reducing the spider’s food source.
  • Regularly inspect and clean storage areas: Basements, attics, and other storage areas are ideal habitats for spiders. Regular inspection and cleaning can help prevent infestations.
  • Landscaping: Keep vegetation, mulch, and wood piles away from your home’s foundation to reduce the likelihood of spiders making their way inside.
  • Regular pest control inspections: Schedule regular pest control inspections and spider treatments with Dream Pest Control to identify any potential problems early and maintain a spider-free home or business.

Common Spider Species on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is home to a wide variety of spider species, some of which are more likely to venture into human habitats than others. Knowing what kind of spider you’re dealing with can help in determining the best course of action. Let’s take a look at the most common ones you may encounter:
