How do I get rid of spiders in my house?
Spider sightings are on the rise, as they tend to go to shelter in late summer and early fall to find a partner and prepare for winter.
In October 2018, eleven schools were forced to close until a month after the invasions of thousands of fake poisonous widows.
The exterminators in chemical suits were seen at a London primary when parents said they were "petrified."
Spiders look for white walls and surfaces to stand out against potential partners, so they often seem to appear in the bathroom.
But there are a number of useful tips that could prevent a large-scale invasion of arachnids.
Spraying mint-scented air freshener around your home is a proven trick since spiders hate its smell.
And owners are advised to vacuum their floors and carpets regularly to collect lost crumbs that can attract tasty insects that spiders love.
Remove any spider web that arises and try to fill any space in the pipes, door and window frames, baseboards and masonry to keep the hairs on end.
Eliminating any shelter site such as compost piles and garden bags near the outside of your home is another way to dissuade them, in addition to using lighting that is less attractive to the flies that spiders feed on.
Discovering a fake widow spider
The fake widow is a medium-sized spider with a round brown body and cream marks.
Its legs are reddish orange.
Females vary in size from 9.5 to 14 mm, while males are 7 to 11 mm.
The body and legs of the spider will look bright.
The species closely resembles the black widow spider, apart from its color.
