In the UK, approximately 600 species of spiders can be found. The vast majority are harmless to humans and spiders are generally considered beneficial to the environment. They feed on insects, other spiders and any other prey that they are able to subdue. Spiders do not have a mouth capable of chewing, so typically, they will use digestive enzymes to break down prey before consuming.
The most common methods of entry into an office or home for spiders is through windows or doors that are either open or have cracks. They can also enter through accidentally being contained in other items.
For certain spiders a combination of cleaning, insecticide spray treatment and on occasion fogging.
