Winter is Coming, and so are the SPIDERS!
During the early Autumn months, people start seeing spiders a lot! Most think it’s because of the cold weather. Spiders creeping around trying to get into your home to survive the winter. While a small part of that is true, another reason for the abundance of our creepy crawly friends is that it’s their mating season.
In fact, most house spiders you see were probably already there. Laying low and keeping to themselves their entire lifecycle. The chance for a mate and spreading his or her genes finally motivating to spider to venture out in the light of day. According to Seattle’s Burk Museum about 5% of spiders, you see indoors have never been outdoors. So how did they get inside in the first place? Most likely they were born inside. They found their way in as egg sacs carried in through furniture or building materials.
Now spiders are cold-blooded but are not attracted to warmth. Most northern spiders, like the ones found in Michigan, have a sort of antifreeze in them that prevents them from freezing in temperatures down to 23 degrees F (-5c). As it gets colder, instead of freezing to death, they will simply slow way down, become inactive and eventually dormant. Anyone from Michigan knows that the temperature will routinely drop below that. That’s why the 8-legged crawlers must also find shelter to protect them from the cold, and sometimes that means your home.
Spiders are excellent infiltrators. They have no problem sneaking there way in your home through gaps in your windows, siding, or roof shingles. They prefer dark secluded areas to haunt such as attics, basements, closets and dark pantries. They also like anywhere they can continue to catch prey, so if you already have a pest problem at home you should expect more unwelcome company during the colder months.
