Eden Pest Knows Pests: Spider Winter Activity

Not all spider species spend the winter in the same manner, according to natural pest control specialists. Some die in the winter after leaving behind a sac full of eggs that are ready to hatch in the spring. Others make their way into warm homes when the temperatures begin to fall. Oregon pest control experts share that there are even those are that happy to hang out in their webs in areas that offer protection from extreme conditions, like on building overhangs or under loose bark.

Residential Pest Control: Spider Egg Sac Prevention

  • Seal cracks in the exterior and interior walls of your home.
  • Keep window and door screens, as well as door sweeps, in good condition.
  • Use yellow-colored outside lighting so your home is less attractive to spider prey (insects).
  • Keep your yard well manicured and free of debris.
  • Vacuum spiders and their webs when you notice them.
  • Remove or vacuum egg sacs when you see them. During the winter, the sacs start to yellow, making them simpler to see.
