Spider Control in Your Home

The itsy bitsy spider… got the heck out of your house.

how we GET RID OF spiders in your home

Most of the spider species in our area are beneficial to the ecosystem. They help control not only other pest populations but some spider species populations as well. While that all sounds good, you still don’t want them inside with you. And if they are there, it means their food including flies and other spiders, is, too. We have treatment strategies that will help deal with the spiders that are already there as well as control future spider entries – and handle the other insects that are attracting them.

How to get rid of spiders

Eliminating the spider’s food source is a great way to get rid of them. So, treating for flies, moths, and many other insects can help. There are sticky traps and other methods that will help, but at the end of the day, a professional spider exterminator is your best bet for getting rid of spiders.

How to get rid of spider mites

Washing plant foliage using a soft cloth, or a forceful spray of lukewarm water can help reduce the spider mite population if done repeatedly. Consult with your landscaper for more professional ways.

What do spiders eat

Most spiders are carnivores and enjoy eating a variety of household insects like flies, cockroaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, fleas, moths, and ants. Some will even eat other spiders.

How to keep spiders away

Professional exclusion work can help keep all pests out, including house spiders. Unfortunately, most pests are small, so keeping them out can be difficult. One way is to reduce lighting that attracts night flying insects that spiders feed on. Spiders can scuttle in while you’re bringing the groceries in or if a door is propped open too long. And it doesn’t need to be open for all that long! Once they are in, glue traps can help capture them. But preventing spiders from getting in could be a losing battle. You can minimize with exclusion work and some commonsense practices, but to truly take care of nuisances like spiders, you’ll need a pest control professional.

What attracts spiders

Their food, of course! Spiders enjoy eating a variety of household insects like flies, cockroaches, earwigs, mosquitoes, fleas, moths, and ants. Some will even eat other spiders. They are also attracted to a warm home during colder months.

Where do spiders live

This depends on the spider. Some like dry areas, some like humid areas. Almost all like areas with less foot traffic. They tend to live wherever their food source is, as well.
