When Are Spiders Most Active In Colorado?

There's a reason the common house spider was given its name. House spiders, as you might suspect, love to live in our houses. You may not know this, but your house contains the perfect ecosystem for these creatures to survive. You have the right food sources, the right moisture levels, suitable places to build webs, and just enough water for these tiny insects to get a drink when they're thirsty. So, if you're the kind of person who scoops up spiders and throws them outside when you find them, you need to know that spider is only going to come back in. Why? Because, not only does your home have a suitable ecosystem, but the environment outside your home is hostile to the common house spider. This is why spiders are a year-round problem. Well, not entirely. Here's what you need to know.

Winter, spring, summer, and fall spiders are going to want to get into your home. Your home is perfect for them. You can probably see how your home could get new spiders in spring, summer or fall, but do spiders really get into home in winter? Yes. They can. Spiders have natural antifreeze that protects them from cold temperatures, and they can be active on mild winter days. So there is a chance, a slight chance, that a spider may find its way from your neighbor's house to yours.

Just because spring has come to Colorado does not mean those spiders that found their way into your home during the winter are going to leave for greener pastures. If spiders have found everything in your home that they need for survival, there is no reason for them to leave, in fact the atmosphere inside your home may actually be safer for them than the outside. So as you can see spiders are not a winter pest, nor are they a fall pest, or a spring pest, they are truly a year-round pest that require a year-round solution.

The best way to stop spiders and other pests from breaching your walls or taking root inside your home is to get year-round services from a professional.
