Indoor Spot Treatment
It is rarely necessary to spray pesticides inside a home’s living space for spiders.Spot sprays are performed in basements, attics and crawlspaces.If required, spot sprays are applied inside actual rooms.
Exterior Perimeter Spray
If a spider population is high on the inside, the population is likely even higher outside.An exterior perimeter spray will create a barrier for spiders until the exterior can be properly sealed.Spiders are often tucked into safe spots during the day. Our technician will hit all of their hiding places.
Orb weaving spiders are persistent web-builders. Following treatment, all webs within 20 feet of the ground will be removed.
Customers are provided with recommendations on how to maintain the spider population following our service.
Green Pest Control Alternatives:
There are 3 categories of spiders: Web weaving, active hunting, and passive hunting spiders. Each of them live very different lives. Therefore there are unique treatment techniques used for each one. The following treatment techniques can be used alone as a green service, or integrated with our regular service plan:
- Sticky traps can be strategically placed for passive hunting spiders.
- Vacuuming easily destroys their soft bodies and webs.
- The use of a Webster Duster improves the aesthetic appearance of a home by removing spider webs.
- Web-Out is a FIFRA exempt 25(b) Minimum Risk Pesticide. It prevents webs from being rebuilt following treatment. It is used as a spray or in conjunction with the Webster Duster.
- The majority of spiders in homes are a result of dense populations adjacent to the structure. Sealing pest entry points are high priority in green pest control plans.
- Trim back vegetation from home. This creates a barrier between the spiders’ natural habitat and your home.
- Spiders are “reclusive”. Remove clutter inside and around the exterior foundation. Minimal hiding places equals minimal spiders.
- Replace standard exterior light bulbs with bug light bulbs. This will stop attracting the flying insects that spiders feed on.
Outdoor Spider Control
Spiders are beneficial. They help maintain the population of insects in your yard.
There is a point when they get to be too much though. If you have reached that point, let's put an end to it today.
Lights Off For Spider Prevention
Spiders prey on insects. Flying insects are attracted to light at night. We fight an uphill battle living along the shores of Lake Erie. Naturally we have an excessive amount of flying insects. Mayflies, midges, Canadian soldiers, more midges, mosquitoes and moths. There is no better place to be a spider than Lakewood, OH and surrounding lake shore communities.
Do yourself a favor. Cover windows at night. Use motion detectors on security lights. Replace regular bulbs with yellow bug lights. Insects have a difficult time seeing high-pressure sodium, incandescent, and bug light incandescent (yellow) lamps. Make your home darker at night to reduce the amount of flying insects. As a result you will have less spiders.
