Tips to avoid yellow sac spiders in Mendota, IL
Yellow sac spiders
are a small species of spider and as their name suggests, they are yellow in color with a tinge of green. These spiders have very long, thin legs that are dark brown in color. Yellow sac spiders are typically found living outside in trees, bushes, woodpiles, and leaf piles. However, you can often find them inside of homes because they were out foraging for food or looking for warm safe shelter to overwinter in. To keep yellow sac spiders out of your Mendota home’s basement, attic, curtains, or closets, the experts at Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators highly recommend implementing a year-round pest control service. Year-round pest control not only controls and gets rid of the yellow sac spiders themselves, but the insects that they feed on. In addition to year-round pest control, our professionals suggest the following prevention tips to help keep yellow sac spiders out of your home:
If you have woodpiles on your property, make sure that they are placed a distance away from the exterior of your home.
Remove piles of leaves and other organic debris from your property that could harbor spiders.
Trim overgrown bushes and shrubs back away from the outside of your home.
Inspect the exterior of your home. Seal any gaps that are found in your home’s foundation and caulk gaps found around windows and doors, and make sure that the weather stripping is intact.
Make sure that window and door screens are completely intact.
Reduce clutter in basement, attic, and storage areas to give the spiders fewer places to hide.

are back and that an infestation can happen to anyone at any time. But do you really know what a bed bug looks like, and how to identify an infestation? The key to eliminating bed bugs as soon as possible is to make sure that you learn what bed bugs look like and what the signs of their presence are.

Bed bug identification
Adults are wingless, brownish-red in color, and are about the length of an apple seed. They are oval in shape and are very flat. However, after feeding they will become very bloated and turn dark red.
Nymphs are much smaller in size than the adults. They are only about 1 mm, and are clear or whitish in color. They are very hard to see with the human eye, unless they have recently fed. After feeding, nymphs turn bright red in color.
How to identify a bed bug infestation
- Finding blood spots or black streaks on linens, mattresses, box springs, the floor, or walls.
- Finding adults or nymphs in the cracks and crevices of mattresses, box springs, or upholstered furniture. Also behind outlets, inside cracks in walls and wooden furniture, behind baseboards, or inside of electronics or keyboards.
- Noticing piles of shed skins underneath of mattresses or on the floor.
