Spiders have their purpose in this world, just not in your home. Spiders in Richmond are common in homes during warm weather, although they can be found indoors any time. Their numbers usually peak during late summer and fall, during their mating season.
There are some spiders we need to be wary of: brown recluse, black widow, hobo and yellow sacks. Black widows especially like crawl spaces in homes. If the wrong kind of spider bites a person or pet, you could have a real problem. The best solution to spider control is prevention.
Most spiders will be found outside your home in grass or wood piles, or in darker places like inside the garage or under your deck. So it’s very important to inspect the areas you frequent outside your home for spider infestation.
Equally important is to inspect potential access points into your home. Chances are that if a spider is inside your home, it’s looking for food and following other insects inside.
How To Keep Spiders Out
Indoors, regular house cleaning provides adequate spider control.
Vacuum up the spider and its web.
Prevent clutter buildup that can provide hiding places.
Remove spider webs from the exterior of the house with a broom or high pressure hose.
Indoors, squash spiders or capture them in a jar and release them outdoors.

Spider's Silk is Liquid
This may sound strange, considering we are used to seeing spider silk in the form of webs, but did you know that it is actually a liquid? When the silk comes into contact with the air, it hardens, allowing them to create and build their webs.
