3 Signs You Have a Spider Problem in Your House

Seeing spiders around your home does not equate to a spider infestation. However, if a spider begins breeding in your home, you could quickly develop a serious spider infestation. While most spiders are perfectly harmless and will try to avoid you as best they can, having a spider infestation, like any other pest infestation, can be bothersome and stressful.

Of course, if your infestation is of Brown Recluse or Black Widows, there is a present danger of getting a nasty bite that will likely require medical assistance.

3 signs you may have a serious spider infestation in your home are:

  1. Spiders

Spiders are excellent little hiders and often do not want to be seen by their prey or anything they deem a threat. While having multiple spiders creeping around your home does not mean you have a spider infestation, seeing the spiders several times a day does.

  1. Webs

Many people have had the unpleasant experience of walking through a spider web while outside. Spiders indoors will most likely build nests out of the way of you and your family so they won’t have to constantly remake it. Look for webs:

  • Around your light fixtures
  • In the corners of the ceiling
  • Behind doors
  • Across windows
  • In unused rooms
  • Behind furniture
  • Under beds

If you take down the webs and they reappear within a few days, you may have an infestation.

  1. Spider droppings

After a spider eats a meal, it will produce droppings that are either under the web or sometimes along a window sill. If you are finding dark liquid or dried black splatter around your home, you are most likely looking at spider droppings.


If you want to make sure you do not develop a spider infestation, controlling the other pests in your home is paramount. Spiders are after the bugs that fly, buzz, or crawl in your home. If there is no food, spiders will eventually leave as well. To cut down on the number of insects in our house, keep a tidy home by regularlying sweeping, wiping down surfaces, and removing trash promptly.
