Q3. What are signs of a spider infestation
Spiders love to build web as it is their home and trap for food. This is one of the most noticeable signs of spiders in your home.
Excess of flying insects
Insects are a spiders favourite food source, and their webs are designed to catch these insects and trap them. If there are a lot more flying insects around your home, spider will be more inclined to build their home to take advantage of the food source.
Spotting more spiders around the home
This is one of the more obvious signs, but worth mentioning that if you see a spider there are probably more around. Finding one could mean that you’ve stumbled onto a potential breeding ground. It takes two spiders to turn your home into a colony, with hundreds of babies running around.
Q4. What to do when you find a spider eggs sac
Spider eggs savs are made of silk that is woven in a way very similar to a web. Their appearance depends on the spider, but most are white, cream, or brown in colour.
You can wrap a cloth around the end of a broom and sweep the egg sac away or use a vacuum cleaner to suck it up and use a sealed plastic bag to dispose of it. Use caution when getting rid of an egg sac because a false move could send dozen baby spiders scattering all over.
