What's With All The Spiders In Colorado?

It can feel like the spider population explodes this time of year; but, the truth is, there are more spiders in the spring than in the fall. So why didn't you notice them then? Because! Those spiders were much smaller, and their webs were smaller too. As they grow to a larger size, their webs grow with them. This is especially true of the orb weaver spider. These spiders make webs that look a lot like Charlotte's Web. They are usually round in shape with the spider right in the middle. These are the webs you get right in the face.

Orb weavers are mostly harmless, and they are great for eating flying insects you don't want buzzing around your home. Some people leave these spiders alone to do their job. However, we suggest getting rid of spiders AND flying insects. You don't need either one of these pesky insects in areas where you or your family are.

Another spider you may be seeing more of is the giant house spider. This is the time of year when the males of this species are sexually mature. This will have them wandering all over your house in search of a mate.

These spiders are also terrible at going unnoticed. The problem is they aren't equipped to avoid your detection. Though they have eight eyes, few have good eyesight. So they won't notice when you enter a room. They are also not blood eaters, like mosquitoes or ticks, two insects that can sense the heat we give off. Spiders just don't care that we even exist.

There may not be more spiders in the fall than in the spring, but that probably doesn't matter to you. You want them gone. That's where EnviroPest can help. We can help you rid your home of spiders in fall, and the rest of the year as well, with our Colorado's Choice program.

What is Colorado's Choice? It is a technologically-advanced, environmentally-safe, pest management system that helps your home to be naturally resistant to pest bugs and wildlife. Our educated and certified technicians combine nature pest exclusion methods with targeted applications of pesticides in vulnerable areas. They know what materials to use, when to use them, and how to apply them in a way that protects your family, pets, and the environment.

EnviroPest has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and Angie's List. When you need effective spider control, give us a call today and see how much better life is, without pests.
