A Five Star Termite & Pest Control spotlights common pests used to scare during the Halloween season.
One of the top pests that are used to create a scary scene are none other than the eight legged arachnids otherwise known as spiders. They are of course a pest that is topping the charts year round that people are fearful of so of course they would be used during Halloween. There are movies and shows that will use them as the main character to really give you a scare. The interesting thing is that spiders would much rather stay hidden and out of sight.
