Spiders are one of the most feared home invaders. There are more phobias about spiders than any other pest, and understandably so.  If you are bitten by several species of spiders - a black widow or a brown recluse –there may be a severe violent reaction which can cause hospitalization.

An effective approach to spider control is to use the knowledge that they are predators; they primarily consume other insects. So if you can reduce the other insects around your home, spiders will be less interested in hanging around. Most spiders are attracted to build webs near light sources.
