How to Get Rid of Hobo Spiders

Hobo spiders suffer from mistaken identity to mistaken behavioral profiles. Even so, hobo spiders present challenges to homeowners, as they can bite, if accidentally disturbed or threatened. Because these brown spiders are often mistaken for brown recluse and wolf spiders, due to their coloring, homeowners might wish to cut to the chase, eliminating all house spider activity.

Some measures homeowners can implement to exclude spiders and other pests from their living spaces include:

  • Sealing or caulking all cracks and crevices around windows doors and your home’s foundation.
  • Removing debris from around your property.
  • Clearing your yard of leftover construction materials or gardening supplies.
  • Keeping grass and vegetation trimmed and cut low to the ground.
  • Keeping your home clean and uncluttered.

For a comprehensive plan to rid your home of all household pest threats, consult with a trusted professional pest control company in your area. Contact your local Truly Nolen location to ask about our Four Seasons approach to household pest control.
