From black widows to the common house spider these creatures lurk around the home in the most unwanted places. They can jump around from place to place without being seen most of the time. Worst of all is that they can cause an infestation. But, where do they hide? We made a list of the most common places spiders tend to feel most at home.

In Your Plants

Inside or outside of the home your plants are at risk attracting spiders. Spiders are attracted to bushes, shrubs, and plants. A temporary fix to resolving your spider problem in plants is to keep your vegetation trimmed.

Around Furniture

Spiders like to hide in dark places and some of the darkest places in your home are behind and under furniture. If you tend to leave these areas untouched for long periods of time, a spider can get cozy.

In Clutter

Spiders actually spend a good amount of time looking for a good hiding spot. Homes that are filled with clutter are the easiest for them to settle into. Think bookcases that never get used or magazine piles that stack up in the corner.


Like we mentioned earlier, spiders like hiding in dark places. There might not be a more preferred place for a spider than in a closet. You might have a clean home but a closet can always be vulnerable.


Some spiders like to hide in cracks and crevices in the wall. Wolf spiders, for example, don't web, so these places are ideal hiding spots for them.


A garage is a red zone for spiders because it tends to have all of the above: closets, clutter, furniture, cracks, and crevices in walls, and plants. It can be an overwhelming sight to look at. If you notice infestation call Critter Busters.
