Springtime in Kansas means spiders are active and ready to come inside your home for an unwanted visit.

Experts say that there are some simple steps you can take to prevent spiders from coming into your home. 

Ryan Cocking with Patton Termite and Pest says the main step is to keep your lawn well-maintained and to avoid having a lot of brush around the outside of your house.

Spiders often seek shelter indoors because it's very hot outside and they're looking for relief.  Also recent rains have made flies and mosquitoes more active, which are two food sources for hungry spiders. 

If you're worried about spiders in your home, the company says you can call an exterminator or wait until the middle of summer when more spiders start to die off due to hot temperatures.
