Spider Control

We Exterminate Spiders Around Your Home & Business

Spiders, while being un-welcomed in our homes and businesses, are a rather interesting creature that is a type of arthropod known as an arachnid. They are classified along with other arachnids, including mites, ticks and scorpions. Although these arthropods may be interesting to study, they are generally an unwelcome visitor to our home. In fact, one of the more common types of phobias is arachnophobia, a fear of spiders.

If you’ve got spiders and need them gone, use the form to the right and we will come take care of them for you.
Our pest control maintenance program is very effective in getting rid of spiders from you home.

More About Spiders

Although spiders may not be welcome in most homes, they are actually beneficial in most cases. Spiders eat other insects, including other arthropods so they may actually help to keep your home clear of more serious problems, including mites and ticks. That being said, if you suffer from arachnophobia or even have a mild disinterest in the species its easy to be concerned when spiders start showing up on the walls and ceilings of the house.

Spiders Are Everywhere

Spiders are everywhere. It has been estimated that you are never more than 10 feet away from a spider at any given time. As the weather changes throughout the year, when it starts to get colder, or when water supplies begin to dry up, you tend to find them indoors more frequently. Almost any type of spider may find its way into your home but some of the more common in most parts of the country include wolf spiders, cellar spiders (daddy long legs) and funnel web spiders.

 

Watch For Hatching Spiders

Most spiders will lay their eggs and then cover them with silk in order to protect them. These egg sacks can commonly be found in the spider web but there are certain species of spider that will carry the eggs with them until they are able to hatch. When the eggs hatch, the spiderlings will quickly disperse, typically by floating on air currents. Those spiders which disperse in this manner may travel for a significant distance using gossamer, which is a thin strand of silk.

Poisonous Spider Control

Although it is true that some species of spider can be poisonous, most are not going to cause any difficulties for others in the household. In Northern California however, there are a few poisonous spiders including the Black Widow which is considered to be one of the most venomous spiders in North America.  Generally, black widows like to be left alone and can be found hiding in wood piles, around trash cans and outdoor sheds around the house.  

It is possible to control a problem with spiders in and around the home but it often requires the professional management from a pest control company.  Some of the tips for spider control around your home include the removal of clutter, traps, and removal of insects that serve as food..
