Now what are some of the reasons that children seem to be so interested in spiders.
Suppose it must have something to do with the movement, BUT most importantly spiders tend to be colorful. Nature is colorful and interesting to learn about. Take a young child to a woodpile in the yard, move some of the wood make hunting for spider’s fun; Very few will attack you, with the Black Widow being a notable exception. Everyone needs to be aware that seldom will you find a black widow spider in your home. Black widows like to be close to the ground and sometimes can be found in a pile of broken branches and leaves. Remember: when looking for spiders: NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN to look for spiders unless they are wearing gloves, long sleeves and long pants.
As a rule of thumb: the more spider webs you find, the more insects you have on the property or in the house. The most likely places you find spiders is in the basement, near doors you seldom use, the corners of the garage doors, in and around the shrubs and in leaves and wood piles. If you seem to have spiders everywhere: call a professional; something is wrong. The pros at No Escape Pest Control are very proficient at finding is cause of the webs. Webs very simply mean you have bugs. Do nothing and you will have more and more insects. Spiders are an excellent collection mechanism for insects. Just Sayin’ in every case: do nothing and the problem just gets worse.
