When spiders and their webs are making your porch look like a Halloween haunted house, it’s time to take action
In the warm Arizona climate, spiders are a fact of life, and that’s not such a bad thing. While they might give us humans the creeps, our eight-legged friends are responsible for keeping the local insect population under control—a very important job for both people and the natural environment. Save for rare poisonous species that should be evicted off your property right away, keeping a few non-aggressive spiders around is a good thing, and it doesn’t have to mean giving up your outdoor space to spider webs. With smart pest control tricks, you can keep your porch clean and clear without harming beneficial spiders or your family with toxic insecticides.
