There are a number of conditions inside your home that attract spiders in the house.  Some spiders prefer moist environments and are attracted to damp areas, basements, and crawl spaces.  Other spiders prefer dry environments and can be found in attics, hvac ducts, and may build webs in the top corners of a room.

To keep spiders out of your house, first cut back all bushes and remove clutter outside your home that may be attractive hiding spots for spiders.  Next check weather-stripping on doors and windows to insure spiders can’t get in that way.  After that, for the occasional spider that does make in indoors, consider applying an insecticide in liquid or dust formulation.
