Effective Pest Control for Spiders Valrico, FL


Spiders are not usually on the top of the annoying pest list.  In fact, I am sure they rank below most other common pests like roaches and rats. However, they can cause the same problems that many other pest do and have traits that make them even worse in many respects then insects and rodents.

Most species of spiders are not likely to cause huge infestations, but even having a few in your home can present an issue if you are bitten by them. There are even a couple of species such as the black widow and brown recluse spiders that pose a serious threat to your health.  They have even been known to cause fatalities with their bites.

The most effective pest control programs to remove spiders include a physical cleaning of existing cobwebs and the use of sticky traps along baseboards in all the rooms where there has been known spider activity. There are also over the counter aerosols you can buy to kill spiders as you see them. For heavier spider infestations and to keep these invaders away you should have a specialist treat your home 2 - 3 times a year.  

The treatment should include spot spraying inside and a thorough perimeter treatment using a good residual chemical that will remain at the surface longer. Having the attic dusted 1 - 2 times a year will also help in eliminating spiders
