Mites often are associated with similar conducive conditions that lead to spider issues, so spider control techniques also may help reduce mite issues of all kinds in urban areas:

⦁ Screens and physical barriers prevent intrusion of spiders, along with rodent and bird hosts of mites.

⦁ Removing clutter reduces spider and mite harborage areas, especially in dark corners where mites may find a source of food.

⦁ Exterior maintenance of trees and foliage reduces harborage areas for spiders and plant mites. It also reduces the proximity of bird nests, a hot spot for parasitic mites.

⦁ Crack-and-crevice application of an appropriate insecticide targets both spiders and mites where they travel most.
