October may be the month you are focused on pumpkins, Halloween, and fall foliage, but there is another thing going on right now that you should also be thinking about. It’s spider mating season! The tons of spiders out there are looking for a dry place where they can mate, and often the ideal place that they are looking for is inside your home. While keeping pests out of your home is an effective method of spider control during the year so your home doesn’t have a food source, food isn’t what they are looking for during mating season.
The good news is that mating season lasts for just six to eight weeks, and you are likely to see an upsurge for only a couple of weeks or until the temperatures drop. The bad news is that without an effective spider control plan in place, each spider that does venture into your home and mate could turn into hundreds of baby spiders! To stay on the good news/bad news wagon, more good news is that the spiders are far more interested in each other and finding a mate than they are with you, but the bad news is they are still creepy to those who are afraid of spiders.
