Spring Valley Spider Infestation
From time to time, the residents of Spring Valley experience a spider infestation.
Signs of a spider infestation are pretty straightforward, if you know where to look.
One unmistakable sign is spider webs.
If you notice a large number of webs scattered about an area, there’s a good chance there are spiders occupying those webs, even if they aren’t immediately visible. Some spiders will hide inside a dead, rolled up leaf located somewhere on the web.
Most non web-weaving spiders like to hide in dark places, so if you have a cellar or garage, those are the most likely locations where you will find them in the home,
Spiders will also hide in gardens because of their shady environment and the wealth of insect prey. Egg sacs, which are spider-sized, circular, structures built to carry hundreds of tiny spider eggs, are another sign that a swarm of spiders has decided that your space is a good place to breed.
Spiders look for one key thing when choosing a home, and that's food. If spiders have taken up residence in your home or business, there’s a good chance that you also have a problem with a different pest that spiders eat,
That could be mosquitoes, flies, or some other insect. They’ve decided on your space for a reason. Some spiders also are attracted to moisture (as are many other insects), which is why they are often found in parts of the house where moisture buildup is common, such as attics, basements, and gardens.
Spiders will enter the house through cracks and crevasses, so if you have unsealed entry points and a food source, your home or business is susceptible to an arachnid invasion.
Arachnophobia: It's All in the Head
Arachnophobia is the unreasoning fear of spiders and other arachnids such as scorpions.
While all in the head, it's still very real.
If you have arachnophobia, you will probably go out of your way to ensure that you do not come into contact with a spider. If you find a spider in your home, you may react in one of two ways: either screaming and running away or freezing in place. You may be unable to kill or trap the spider yourself, relying on a friend or family member to rescue you from the situation. If you are alone, you may actually leave the house rather than deal with the spider.
If you are a true arachnophobic, you will probably find it difficult to read this article, as even images of spiders can trigger the unreasoning fear.
Eventually, you may find yourself limiting your activities in an effort to avoid spiders. Hiking and camping trips may be difficult or impossible for you. You may even dread visiting the zoo or participating in sports that involve being outside in a field.
