When it comes to spiders, one of the only places in the world you won’t find them would be Antarctica. While Denver can get downright chilly, spiders are still unavoidable here. Nearly all spiders that you come across in your life will be in your home. This is inevitable as a Denver homeowner, given just how many different house spiders there are.

No one wants to come across these long-legged bugs in the dead of night or during the day, for that matter. Spiders in your house shouldn’t ruin your good mood, so don’t let them. Having a fear of spiders is very common, but that shouldn’t mean you have to flee your Denver home upon finding one in the kitchen.

What Attracts Spiders To Your Denver Home

Most spiders go about their lives in survival mode. They don’t typically have any particular reasons as to why they enter your home. If you find spiders in your house, it will most likely be because they want shelter. Some spiders will seek out food in your home via other bugs that have infiltrated, but most will be escaping the elements.

Spiders are not social creatures by nature, so they prefer finding dark secluded areas to live in. They can gain entry from the smallest of holes. And there are many types of brown spiders that would gladly set up shop in your garage. 

Effective Spider Prevention Tips For Denver Homes

Keep spiders away from your home with these prevention tips:

  • Keep your grass cut (Spiders love untamed yards)
  • Install screens if you intend to keep the door open (The same goes for windows and vents)
  • Sweep around the entry points of your home (all windows, doors, patios, etc.)
  • Keep your space clean and tidy (Clear boxes, stacks, baskets, drawers, closest)

By keeping a well-worked and neat space, you can stay vigilant against spiders. However, if any do show back up don’t let your fear of spiders take over. Don’t run off and move into a friend’s house! There is one sure-fire way to keep spiders out of your space. Also, your friend most likely has spiders running around too.
