Now that your man cave is complete, your wife has been eager to have her very own space where she can relax in total peace. Whether your wife looks forward to filling her backyard getaway with books or crafting supplies, the last thing she wants is to discover spiders invading her personal territory. As you get to the final stages of the building process, be sure to implement these spider pest control measures so that an unsightly arachnid never surprises your wife.
1. Eliminate Their Prey
Spiders are predators, and they spend most of their time searching for prey. Like most pests, you'll find that they will enter indoor areas when they find an easy meal. Outdoor sheds tend to attract a wide variety of pests such as flies, cockroaches, and beetles. If you are remodeling an older shed, then it is possible that it already has a pest control problem that must be treated before you continue. Once you get rid of the original pests, help your wife avoid attracting insects to the shed by encouraging her to keep food cleaned up inside and always to shut the doors and windows when the building is unoccupied.
2. Include the Shed in Seasonal Inspections
Spider control often involves seasonal checks of your residence to find out if any are lurking in less visible parts of your home. Now that you have a she-shed in the backyard, you must view this building as an extension of your property. Ask your pest control technician to also inspect the shed and its surrounding areas for signs of spider control problems so that they are treated immediately.
3. Check the Perimeter of the Shed
A spider problem that shows up in the shed is often indicative of bigger problems outside of the building. Check around the outside of the shed to see if there may be items that are harboring spiders such as firewood or vegetation that needs to be moved away from the building. Once you handle these areas, then check to make sure that the doors and windows of the shed are sealed as an extra step in the spider control plan.
Your wife's she-shed is a place where she can go to take a break from all of her responsibilities, and you want to know that she feels safe in her brand new space. While it may add an extra step to your building plans, making sure that spiders are under control makes you even more of a hero in your wife's eyes.
