Spider Exterminator Service

Spider Control Service in Cleveland, OH

Did you know that there are over 600 species of spiders in Ohio? It can certainly be hard to know where to start if you have a spider problem! Spider control must start with proper identification of the problem species. That’s where a professional exterminator can help.

After another exterminator never finished our squirrel removal/house repairs, Shawn took care of us. He is everything a contractor should be--professional, communicative, friendly, reasonable, and effective. He is the epitome of the reason I choose small companies whenever I can. Thank you, Shawn.
Would highly recommend. From initial conversation through the completion of the agreed upon work there was constant communication, they were always on time, and the installation of fencing under porch was done efficiently and has proven to be effective. Helpful during discussions and planning as well. Awesome service and would use again in the future if needed.
Would highly recommend Shawn! I hiredtwo previous exterminator companies to help me with my squirrel in the attic problems and neither of them fixed the issue. Shawn was able to find the problem and take care of it and unlike some of these other companies no squirrels were harmed in the process
Lakewood Exterminating is great and so worth it. I had a lot of spiders and centipedes in my house. One day I got rid of over 12 spiders and that is when I called Lakewood Exterminating. Ever since then I have seen barely any bugs in my house. When I do see the occasional one, I will give them a call and they will be out the next day.
Shawn is knowledgeable and savvy. He addressed all my concerns alongside follow-up items without feeling like he was overselling me on anything. Will definitely be hiring again in the future (if needed!)
Have used this company before and will do so again and again. They are prompt, courteous, clean, and very helpful
We’ve been working with Lakewood Exterminating for several years and they are always professional, on time, and delivering successful and safe pest spray services.
Lakewood Extermination gave me a timely response to my inquiry for extermination and an estimate. Arrived on time and was curteous and professional. I would recommend, especially if you are in the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County area.
Shawn did an amazing job! We agreed on the price, and after the work was completed, Shawn said it did not require the amount of work he estimated. He reduced the bill dramatically. Most companies ask for more money when they are done, not less!I highly recommend Lakewood Exterminating.
Can’t say enough good things! Quick to respond, friendly and most important the work is efficient and effective! We had a bug issue pop up and Lakewood Exterminating responded quickly to needing someone out to the house. I was so impressed I’ve started seasonal service to avoid future bug issues.
Shawn returns calls and is available in a timely matter. His prices are reasonable and the the work professional. I whole-heartedly recommend Lakewood Experimenting services.
Amazing service, they were very nice and looked over my house thoroughly. They also were honest and didn't try to sell me extra services I did not need. Highly recommend and extra bonus they are local!
Great communication. They are always punctual and do a great job! Reasonable pricing compared to other companies. I highly recommend Lakewood Exterminating!
They were on time and professional. One of the guys sprayed internally and he was very thorough. I loved that he brought boot covers to wear inside the house. Very thoughtful and respectful of the home!
Shawn was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. The cost was appropriate. I highly recommend Shawn and Lakewood Exterminating.
I called Lakewood Exterminating to help with spiders and centipedes. I spoke directly with the owner who is very personable and helpful. After chatting, he sent me a text with a link to review their rates and policies. Their prices beat other quotes we received. I called back and got scheduled within a week. I didn’t need to be home to have them service the outside of my home which is helpful. They arrived on time and sprayed the exterior of my home. I haven’t seen a creepy crawly since. I HIGHLY recommend Lakewood Exterminating. They are professional, friendly, timely and efficient.
Have used them multiple times for hornet nests. They're always out within a day or two, have done a great job and even found extra nests we hadn't seen and took them out too. Highly recommend!
They came out very promptly. Were extremely friendly and professional and were very knowledgeable about the issue we were having. Highly recommend!
My experience with Lakewood Exterminating has been very positive. From the initial information call with Simone to the appointment, today, with Shawn couldn’t have been better. First impressions were quite impressive.
I am so happy with their service and their entire team is so wonderful and so kind. Best service hands down. 🙌
Shawn will solve your issues. Calm, patient, knowledgeable and reasonable. I have saved his info should need be in the future. You will be pleased and impressed with the results.
I always recommend everyone to Lakewood Exterminating! They are always very responsive. I’m pretty neurotic about bugs and they always come soon after I call. Definitely recommend the quarterly visit package!
We love Lakewood Exterminating. They have the best customer service, are always on time, and we’ve had NO issues with bugs since they’ve started spraying. Payment process is very easy too. Thanks!

How To Figure Out What Kind Of Spider You Have

There are some great resources on the internet to help you identify spiders. Join the insect identification group on Facebook. Better yet, ODNR Division of Wildlife has a great collection of identification guides. You can download their Common Spiders of Ohio guide.

You can also feel free to email us photos of your pests. We’ll identify them for you for free!

Not All Spiders Are Created Equal!

There are three main categories of spiders: web-weaving spiders, active-hunting spiders, and passive-hunting spiders. Each of them behaves very differently. Therefore, we use unique treatment techniques for each type. For example, web-weaving spiders very rarely make contact with the ground. As a result, we don’t waste time spraying surface areas for these types of spiders. Instead, we focus on other control methods.

Yellow sac spiders are common household spiders. Unfortunately, they bite.

Cleveland, Ohio is home to a variety of spider species, including:

Brown Recluse Spider (Loxosceles reclusa): This venomous spider is characterized by its brown color and the distinctive violin-shaped marking on its back. While uncommon in Cleveland, brown recluse spiders can be found in dark, undisturbed areas like basements, attics, and closets.

Black Widow Spider (Latrodectus mactans): This venomous spider is characterized by its shiny black color and red hourglass marking on its abdomen. Black widow spiders can be found in warm, dry environments like garages, sheds, and woodpiles.

Wolf Spider (Lycosidae): These large, hairy spiders are known for their speed and agility. Wolf spiders can be found in gardens, fields, and wooded areas, and can occasionally enter homes in search of prey.

Orb Weaver Spider (Araneidae): This common spider is known for its intricate, circular webs. Orb weaver spiders can be found in gardens, wooded areas, and around homes.

Jumping Spider (Salticidae): These small, colorful spiders are known for their impressive jumping abilities. Jumping spiders can be found in a variety of habitats, including gardens, fields, and wooded areas.

Comprehending the various spider species in Cleveland is essential for efficient pest control and prevention, as most spiders can pose a potential bite threat to humans. Engaging the services of a professional extermination company can assist in identifying and eradicating these pests, ultimately resulting in a secure and spider-free home environment for you and your family.

Early detection of a spider infestation is critical for prompt and effective spider control. Here are some signs to look out for:

Presence of spider webs: Spider webs are a tell-tale sign of spider activity. Look for webs in corners, windowsills, and other areas where spiders may hide.

Egg sacs: Spider egg sacs are small, white, and oval-shaped, and can contain dozens of spider eggs. They are typically found near spider webs or in hidden, undisturbed areas.

Visible spiders: Spotting spiders crawling around your home is a clear sign of an infestation. Some species, like the jumping spider, are more active during the day and can be easily seen.

Unusual spider behavior: Some spiders, like the wolf spider, are nocturnal and will become more active at night. If you notice an increase in spider activity during unusual hours, it could indicate an infestation.

How To Get Rid Of Spiders

There are, however, a few strategies that you can try yourself. These ideas will work on any spider, regardless of its species.

  • Vacuum While only temporary, vacuuming is a quick and easy way to destroy spiders and webs.
  • Webster Duster A Webster Duster removes webs from nooks and crannies. Spider sprays are also more effective if webs are removed prior to treatment.
  • Seal Gaps Check for gaps under your siding, or around windows and air conditioner units. While this won’t address any spiders already inside, it will prevent them from getting inside in the first place.
  • Make Repairs Staying up-to-date on screen repairs is another effective exclusion strategy.
  • Traps A few strategically-placed sticky traps is a great way to deal with active-hunting spiders. Unlike web-weaving spiders, passive- and active-hunting spiders can be tricky to find on your own — let them come to your traps instead.
  • Trim Back Vegetation Many spiders find their way inside through vegetation that grows too close to the structure. 
  • Remove Clutter Spiders are naturally reclusive. Get rid of clutter in and around your home where they can hide, such as piles of yard waste, debris, or clothing.
  • Light Sources You’ll never be fully rid of your spider problem unless you address their food source. Spiders love to feast on flying insects. Flying insects love bright lights. With this in mind, consider making some tweaks to your home’s lighting. 
    • Replace standard exterior light bulbs with yellow bug light bulbs.
    • Install motion detectors on exterior security lights, instead of keeping them on continuously.
    • Close your blinds (especially at night) and turn off lights when a room is empty.
  • Potato Bugs Many spiders love to eat potato bugs, which are commonly found in Ohio basements. Try getting rid of any potato bugs. While it may not get rid of your spider problem completely, you may start to notice a difference over time.
