Spiders Heading Indoors to Shelter and Breed

Spider in a web

Spiders are a beneficial part of the ecosystem, as they provide a natural form of pest control by catching insects in their webs, but that doesn’t mean they have an open invitation to wander inside our homes. Much like humans, spiders seek shelter from cooler weather in warm environments. Unfortunately, our homes provide the perfect harborage site for these creepy crawlers to ride out the colder months, which can lead to a larger infestation. Natasha was on Mass Appeal to talk about why spiders are heading indoors to shelter and breed, and what you can do to prevent it.
