Often referred to as “daddy longlegs,” there are about 20 different cellar spiders in the United States and Canada. They are arachnids and come in a variety of sizes. But most importantly, they swell in dark and damp spaces, like your cellar or basement.
Count on your local Drive-Bye Exterminators for immediate spider treatments, no matter how long the legs are.
Cellar spiders are a pale yellow to light brown or gray color. Their bodies are oval-shaped, and they can be short or long-bodied. The approximate size is between ¼ and 3/8ths inch in length. Cellar spiders have the usual eight legs, but they are very long and thin. And these spiders have eight eyes arranged in two groups of three with two in between. Have you seen a bug on the bed that looks just like this? Hurry, and contact Drive-Bye Exterminators before you have a full-blown infestation.
The Cellar Spider loosely makes its webs with irregular shapes and patterns. They like to place them in areas with high humidity and moisture. That is why the cellar, basement, attic, barn, and sheds are perfect for these long-legged spiders.
The cobweb appearance of their webs comes from the fact that they do not take down their webs when used space is limited. Instead, they build new webs layer upon layer.
The long-bodied cellar spiders are a nuisance pest for sure. Their cobwebs are unattractive and seem to appear out of nowhere. However, they are not known to bite humans and pose no threat. So they just look bad and no more than that.
Clearly, most people prefer to keep spiders out of their homes. So, to prevent cellar spiders from getting into your home, incorporate the following into your daily routines:
Contact a local and professional pest control company for an inspection and evaluation for removing all pests from your home and property.
The best way to rid your home of Cellar Spiders is to sanitize and clean the remote spaces of the house often. This will eliminate the webs and the spiders too. Additionally, you can eliminate spiders and insects, but it requires a professional service. The professional application combines techniques that pose the lowest risk to your health and the environment. Make sure you hire a pest control company with experience with spiders, licensed and certified.
