Why Spiders Come Into Casselberry Homes

There are a few reasons different types of spiders invade homes here in Casselberry. The first reason is to hunt for other pests like flies, centipedes, ants, and cockroaches.

Spiders naturally roam around and sometimes slip through gaps, cracks, and other openings in a home's exterior. Once inside, they will assess your living areas for food sources and places to hide if they decide to stick around.
