Although there are many spiders found in houses that are considered "common," there is one that bears the name. The American House Spider is a tiny spider with a fat belly, brown in color with stripes on its legs. While it is not venomous, if one bites you it can be itchy. For the most part, they are relatively harmless, but you still don’t want them in your home. Their presence can signify a larger pest problem.


How Do House Spiders Get Inside?

House spiders can get into West Chester homes in a variety of ways. You may accidentally transport them inside from firewood or by bringing in an outdoor plant. They may hitch a ride in a storage box, or they might just walk right in on their own. No matter how they get in, you’ll want to find a way to get them out and keep them out.

Why do You Need Help?

You may be wondering why you need a service plan to get rid of house spiders if they are harmless. The presence of spiders in your home likely means you have other pests. House spiders set up webs and go from one to another looking to see if they trapped any food. The food they trap includes flies, mosquitoes, beetles, ants and any other insects that crawl into their webs. If these pests weren’t present, the house spiders might move on and look for a food source somewhere else.
