Behavior and Habitat of Spiders
Blood fills up all the empty space in a spider's body and helps it to keep its legs stiff so it can walk. As spiders grow, they shed their exoskeleton to make room for a larger, newer exoskeleton. They molt many times before they become adults. Many spiders live for only one year, but some, like tarantulas, can live much longer.
Signs of Infestation of Spiders
Spider webs are the most evident sign of infestation.
Tips for Prevention of Spiders
Seal cracks and avoid having clusters of things in places; such as, the attic, garage, or closets to eliminate hiding spots.
