When It’s Cold Outside Spiders Come In

Although spiders are widely considered nothing more than a nuisance, they are also rather enterprising little pests. Some spider species will die off during the winter after securing a future for their eggs. Others will seek warmth for the cold spell ahead.

There are a few ways in which shelter seeking spiders can survive a cold winter. The first is to find refuge inside your home or office. These cozy spots are perfect for nest building and egg-laying. Arachnids prefer to set up shop in stored items, cluttered areas, and dark warm areas, such as.

  • Attics & Basements
  • High Corners
  • Under Cabinets
  • Sheds
  • Beneath Furniture
  • Eaves & Overhanging Architecture
  • Closets
  • Plastic & Cardboard Storage Containers
  • Shoes & Unused Clothing
  • Cluttered Rooms
  • Under Yard Debris

They Wake Up For Snacks – Your Snacks

Some spiders survive the cold season to go into diapause – a sort of energy conservation. These spider’s bodies can produce glycerol, which acts as an antifreeze to keep the spider warmer. Spiders in diapause still require a food source and will emerge from their secure nest to hunt during warmer days, then return to their homes to sleep when the more frigid days of winter return.

It is important that you eradicate their possible food sources in and around your home to discourage a winter spider infestation.
