Exterminators say spider activity increases toward the end of summer and beginning of fall.
In order to keep those pesky critters out, they say it’s important to keep things like wood and recycling piles away from the home because that’s where spiders seek shelter.
Residents we spoke with say they have an easy solution to their spider problem.
“We just kill them. If you kill them you don’t have to prepare for them you know what I mean? Just block the way for them when it gets cold outside just put your killer out that way when that thing crosses the line they’re dead,” said Jerry Goodin, Veneta resident.
Exterminators say you can also power wash your home to keep spiders from spinning webs.
