Do house spiders avoid humans?

For one thing, spiders tend to avoid people, and have no reason to bite humans because they aren't bloodsuckers and don't feed on humans, Buddle said.

People also ask, do spiders live in a family?

A social spider is a spider species whose individuals form relatively long-lasting aggregations. Whereas most spiders are solitary and even aggressive toward other members of their own species, some hundreds of species in several families show a tendency to live in groups, often referred to as colonies.

What do house spiders live on?

"Spiders feed on common indoor pests, such as roaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, flies and clothes moths," explains a fact sheet by Bayer CropScience. "If left alone, spiders will consume most of the insects in your home, providing effective home pest control."

What attracts spiders in your house?

Spiders aren't attracted to the light, but many of the insects they feast on are. Dark coloured siding is less attractive to the bugs which spiders feast on than white siding. Spray your house down with peppermint, tea-tree, citrus or eucalyptus oil. Spiders supposedly hate the smell.
