Identification:  The adult house spider is usually a brown to dirty white in color and anywhere from 1/8 to 5/16" in length.

Habits:  These are by far, the most common spiders found indoors.  This spider is considered a nuisance pest, more because of its webs than the spider itself, which is harmless to humans.  The house spider will build its webs in corners, around window frames, closets, basements, and a variety of other areas.  If the web does not yield prey, it will be abandoned for another site.  Due to the fact their web site selection is by trial and error, several webs may be constructed over a period of a few days.

Control:  The best method for the control of spiders should begin with an exterior treatment, with the appropriately labeled residual pesticides, as well as, an interior spray around doors and windows and spider harborage areas.  Monroe Pest Control Co., Inc. has highly qualified personnel who will eliminate these spiders.  We stand behind our work and offer a warranty with our services.
