Spider Eggs Inside Your Home

Most household spiders are not dangerous to humans. In fact, they prefer to eat other insects. The main problem is once they find their way in your home you are sure to have eggs somewhere in your household. If you do not take it seriously, your Southeast Idaho home can become infested. Here are some things you should be aware of when it comes to spiders.

Why is it a Problem to Have Spiders in the Home?

Depending on the species, a spider could be dangerous to be roaming through your home. For instance, you would not want a poisonous black widow spider taking up residence in your home. Spiders can lay several eggs incredibly quick while in your home. The female spider covers her offspring in a silken egg sac, which she carries with her.

Some spiders may hide their sac in a safely secured web. A female black widow spider can produce up to 20 egg sacs within their lifespan, each including up to 300 eggs. On the bright side, their survival rate is low. Spider eggs usually hatch within 2 to 3 weeks after being laid, which can differ based on the type of species. 

Preventive Measures to Take

An excellent way to remove an egg sac from your home is by vacuuming it up. You need to be cautious and not bust the sac before it lands into your vacuum cleaner. If this should happen, there will be hundreds of spiders roaming through your home. This situation is not good, especially if the spiders are the poisonous spiders, such as the brown recluses and black widows.

If you are not confident about the species of the spider sac, contact a pest control service.
