What To Do About Webs

There are 57 different species of spiders native to Virginia. 52 of these species are web building spiders. This includes the most common type of spider in Virginia: the Wolf Spider.

Spiders tend to prefer stable structures when building webs so the elements won’t disrupt their threaded homes. When choosing a place to make a web, spiders are most interested in what a space provides them: mainly, a good food source.

Spiders really only need a little bit of privacy from bigger animals, warmth, and access to other bugs for snacking. That’s why the sides of houses are prime targets for spiders. Not only that, but the light that comes from windows attracts bugs, which is why spiders cast their webby traps right on top of them.

The exterior walls of homes typically have grooves, cracks, or holes. These are prime locations for web building. If tree branches touch the sides of your home, this can act as highways for spiders to reach your home.

Spiders also tend to make their webs year-round and they can build one in under 30 minutes. While they are occupying a web, spiders can repair it indefinitely.

Unlike other types of debris, the challenge with spider webs is that they are sticky. They attract dirt and dust and hold onto it. If a spider abandons its web for whatever reason, they may leave it behind. For homeowners, this means they have grime catches stuck to the sides of their house.
