Spiders Are Excellent Hiders

In general, spiders are quite shy and usually like to stay hidden. It is not uncommon to find spiders hiding in stored boxes, in the back of closets or in the attic. It is not common to find a large amount of spiders in a given area indoors, so finding them may be a bit hard.

Step 1

Carefully Check Undisturbed Areas

When trying to find spiders in your home you will usually need to start poking around stored boxes and other areas that typically are undisturbed using a bright flashlight. Look behind boxes, in cabinets, behind and under appliances and furniture and other places that are often left undisturbed. Cobwebs are also a clear indication that a spider has been present.
Pro Tip

We recommend leaving small glue board traps in cabinets, in the back of closets, under appliances and in storage areas such as attics or basements to help monitor your home or business for spiders and other pests

Tools Needed:

  • Bright Flashlight
