Spiders   Photo


Spiders are arachnids that love our East Tennessee yards because they offer free room and board. Our gardens and landscaping plants provide spiders with a place to live and easy access to the insects that they love to catch and eat. In addition, things like downspouts, clogged gutters, and leaky hoses supply them with water. Who could blame spiders for wanting to call our yards home?

Most spiders are not a problem to have in our yards in controlled numbers. However, populations of spiders and their insect prey go hand in hand, so if insects are starting to take over your yard or move into your home, spiders will follow. If you see large numbers of spiders or their webs near, on, or in your house, it is time to take action and reach out to a professional.

To avoid problems with spiders on your property, use the following prevention tips:

  • Maintain outdoor eating areas and gardens, keep lids on trash cans, and pick up uneaten pet food to prevent insects from swarming your property.
  • Repair leaky pipes and clean out clogged gutters.
  • Cut bushes, shrubs, and other landscaping back from your home's exterior.
  • Routinely look over your home's exterior and seal any openings spiders could use as an entry point.
