SPOKANE, Wash.-- Creepy crawlers are keeping Spokane exterminators busy thanks to a wet spring and long, hot summer.

Exterminators report spider infestations are making up over 50% of their more recent calls.  Enviro Pro Exterminators said calls spiked just in the past month with homeowners reporting spiders crawling around their homes, especially Hobo spiders.

Experts said the best thing you can do to prevent a spider problem is cover up all the cracks around your home.  They said keep plants, bushes, and shrubs far away from the house too.

Another good way to reduce the problem is to clean your house, according to experts.  They said get rid of all the clutter and dust often.
