Spiders in Michigan are as common as alligators in the Everglades. They’re not nearly as dangerous but can be just as scary. There’s not a whole lot that can be done about their natural environment, but there are a few things that homeowners can do to keep the creepy-crawly critters at bay.


When it comes to the great outdoors, Skip and Sharon Schmidt, owners of Liberty Services of America dba Spider Man Pest Control of Fraser, recommend getting out the trimmer. “Outside landscaping plants are prime places for bugs to multiply,” they said. So trim the plants. Any firewood being stored outside should be moved away from the house and all trashcan lids should be tightly sealed.


Spiders love water. They find it very attractive.


So you want to make sure the gutters and downspouts are clog-free and any water is drained away from the home’s foundation. You should make sure the sprinkler is not aimed toward the house. If you have any leaking pipes or faucets – such as the outdoor tap – fix them or risk visits by itsy-bitsy spiders. The Schmidts, who have been involved in the pest industry for more than 30 years, said mulch is also an excellent harborage for many insects and recommend keeping it at least 12 inches away from the house.


As far as protecting the home itself, they suggest repairing window screens, doors and door sweeps, and using caulk to seal cracks in cabinets, along baseboards and around plumbing. They also advise taking a look at all attic vents to make certain they are covered with tightly fitted screens.


If you have a big spider problem, consult a professional pest control company.
