How Do I Prevent Cobwebs?

Anyone living near Buckingham, PA, whose house has needed cleaning might have noticed some unsightly webs hanging around their homes. Maybe this is the first time, but it’s far more likely that you’ve seen cobwebs more than once when performing your cleaning routine. In either case, you might be asking yourself: “How do I get rid of cobwebs for good?”

Understandably, you’d rather not see these webs in high-traffic areas where your family spends most of its time. It’s not particularly difficult to get rid of cobwebs when you see them. However, preventing them takes a little more effort.

What is a “Cobweb?”

The first step to preventing a cobweb is understanding where it comes from in the first place. Cobwebs are old, vacant spiderwebs that the occupant has abandoned in search of more food. Using a vacuum or duster to get rid of these old webs solves the problem for the moment, but it doesn’t get rid of the spider that made it and probably just moved to another part of your home.

Dealing with Spiders
Generally, spiders can be seen as helpful creatures: They help control other pests that may be nearby, like cockroaches, flies, mosquitos, moths, and other small creatures. As helpful as spiders might be when it comes to keeping these other pests at bay, you don’t want any of them living in your home.

The good news is that by taking precautions against some of these other pests, the number of spiders that seek shelter in your house will decrease, leaving you with fewer cobwebs crowding your corners.

A Plan for Pest Control
There are many different ways to deal with pests, but the simplest way to keep the number of pests in your home to a minimum is to make sure you remove things they can eat and live in when cleaning your home.

While cleaning, focus on:
* Removing any leftover crumbs in your kitchen
* Getting rid of cardboard boxes where pests make their home
* Reducing clutter to a minimum
* Maintaining a regular vacuuming schedule to avoid dust buildup

Cleaning your house regularly will reduce the chances of pests inviting themselves over. With fewer pests, there will be fewer spiders, and fewer spiders mean fewer cobwebs.
