Hundreds of Spider Species Call Ohio Home
There are over 40,000 spider species worldwide, but only about 600 of those species live in Ohio. Some are natural Ohio residents while others have hitched a ride here on food or lumber shipments.

Why are Spiders a Problem?
Spiders play an important role in controlling mosquito, fly, and other insect populations, which is beneficial to you and the environment. However, if you’re seeing a lot of these pests around your home, this means they have enough food to sustain a large population, which could quickly get out of control. This could also point to a secondary infestation, which would require treatment. If you notice spiders or pests, it might be time for professional pest control service.
Where Do Spiders Hide?
Spiders can typically be found in your home or property hanging around window corners, above the kitchen sink, in barns, garages, and outbuildings or hiding at the back of cabinets and in clothes. Spiders tend to like dark, cool areas such as basements, porches and even under siding.

Signs Of A Spider Infestation
Know What To Look For
Spiders enter your home or property through cracks in walls or gaps in window screens to escape cold and wet conditions outside. Once they are safe and happy inside your house, female spiders will lay egg casings, each of which contains hundreds of babies. By the time you kill the mother, more spiders may already be crawling around, making the problem hard to control. Often, these egg cases are too small to notice or are well hidden. Other signs of an infestation include seeing webs or an excessive amount of bugs, which could attract spiders to your home. If you see these signs, contact Champion Pest & Termite Control for service in Columbus, Ohio to request treatment.
