I have had other pest control companies in the past. Now and forever they will remain in the PAST. I was referred to Bulwark by my ever so GREEN conscious daughter who raved about the pet friendly service and pest control. I was not impressed when I sat at my house for 4 hours waiting for a tech who never showed. I called and was told they forgot to schedule one. I advised I was a Realtor who would have liked to refer Bulwark, but not after this first contact. I was assured they would send their BEST Tech...AND they DID. Ryan Peck was sent out probably forwarned by the office, but he was knowledgeable, courteous, and went above and beyond to make my experience with Bulwark a memorable one. Because of Ryan Peck I have referred several clients to Bulwark and personally would not allow any other tech to service my home. Bulwark needs to hang on to Ryan Peck with both hands, without him, I would either have criters or track him down and bring him back.‎

What Do Cellar Spiders Eat?

Like all spiders, cellar spiders are predators and carnivores. They will eat just about any kind of insect or bug including moths, mosquitoes, flies, beetles, and other spiders like the black widow and brown recluse. When an insect walks into its web, the cellar spider wraps it up in spider silk and sucks it dry. When the cellar spider is finished, it cuts the insect loose, letting it fall to the ground creating a pile of dead, dry, bug bodies underneath its web.

What Do Cellar Spiders Do?

Cellar spiders like dark, damp areas, such as crawl spaces, basements, and sheds but can also be found around doorways and in garages. Cellar spiders are often referred to as Daddy Long-Legs due to their very long, thin legs. The true Daddy Long-Legs, however, is another animal entirely, called the Harvestman. They create messy webs, which gather dust and floating debris, as well as the remains of the insects the spiders have fed on. Cellar spiders hang upside down on their webs, and when disturbed, they will shake and bounce the web noticeably, or drop off the web and run to hide.

How Do Cellar Spiders Reproduce?

Cellars spiders prefer to live in secret places and like to live close to their mate. In fact, male and female cellar spiders will often live next door to each other. The female creates an egg mass of about a dozen eggs, and holds it in her jaws until the eggs hatch. The babies hatch after several weeks.

Interesting Facts About Cellar Spiders:

Once a cellar spider's web gets too old, the spider spins a new web that is attached to the old web. Over time, this creates significant amounts of cobwebs.
