Like all spiders, the species that elect home in our houses have eight legs. Their body is divided in two parts: their head and thorax which is welded together and their abdomen. They never have wings. Their shape, their size and their colour are very varied.
Development and morals
Female siders usually lay their eggs in woven bag of silk threads. They dispose of these in shelters or keep the bags with them. They hibernate no matter the stage of their life cycle. Eggs usually hatch a few weeks after they are laid. Upon coming out of the eggs, the babies will already resemble adults. They will not undergo a transformation but will moult multiple times before they reach their adult size. Although most spiders come from outside, some species tend to live inside our houses. They feed off insects that they hunt or capture in their web. They also have silk protective organs that they use to make their nests, webs (used to capture their prey) and cocoons (to protect their eggs). Spiders can have up to eight eyes but the majority of them are nearsighted. Most spiders are nocturnal, timid and prefer to run from confrontation.
It is recommended that prior and after a treatment, to limit exterior lighting to a minimum and not direct the lighting towards any doors or windows. Light attracts insects, which in turn, attract spiders.
- With the help of a broom or vacuum, frequently clean electric baseboards and the corners of each room to eliminate all debris and food.
- The usage of yellow light bulbs attracts less insects and in turn, less spiders near your home.
