How Many Spiders Is Too Many?

Here at Fox Pest Control, we believe one spider is one spider too many when it comes to your home. Sadly, there is no way to escape spiders. Due to their diversity, we can find spiders in just about every region of the world. Thankfully, most are harmless to humans, but there are a couple of species you should know how to identify to avoid. As a Midland, Texas homeowner, you should also know how to protect your home from spiders and how to react if you have a problem.

Why One Spider Is One Too Many

Spiders are one of the most hated insects across the United States. Whether its because of their many legs, the way they move, or the webs they spin, when a spider lands on someone, it usually sends the person into a wild freak-out like some weird new dance to get the spider off. It’s not pretty.

How To Avoid The Spider Dance

Many times spiders can be found in tight, dark, or rarely disturbed places. Examples of places spiders can be found in or around the home include:

  • Piles of debris or firewood.
  • Under items that are lying on the ground.
  • Behind furniture.
  • In the backs of cabinets.
  • In attics or basements.

Eliminating as many of these places where spiders thrive will help reduce the spider population in your home. The best way to prevent a spider infestation is to have one of Fox Pest Control’s professionally trained technicians come out for a free inspection on your property. The technician will be able to help you eliminate trouble spots and treat areas that already have a spider population.

If You Already Have A Spider Infestation

If you become aware of a spider infestation, you must get in contact with a professional! Spot treating can help keep spiders at bay, but they will only continue to return without more thorough treatment.

To avoid a spider bite, never don clothes that are picked up from the floor, and check all clothing articles before dressing. If possible, pull couches, chairs, and beds away from the walls to deter spiders. All of these preventative steps can help, but do not guarantee your safety. This is why the safest bet is to call a professional when it comes to spider infestations in your home.


Spiders’s only source of food is other insects, which is why we say, “If you see one spider in your home, it is time to take action.” The presence of spiders is a sign that your home also has an insect problem. Thankfully, Fox Pest Control techs are trained on how to successfully eradicate your spider and bug infestation./p>

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
