Spider Control 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.

Once you’ve identified the species, the next step is to formulate a control plan. We’ll provide specific recommendations to eliminate outdoor habitats, seal off entry points, and eliminate food sources altogether.

Responds quick, gets to work fast and takes care of what I need. Will always call Shawn when I need an exterminator.Response from the ownerThanks Eric. I appreciate the return business. joe drainjoe drain ★★★★★ I definitely recommend Lakewood Exterminating. We hadn't used them before I called last week. They came right out and took care of our ant problem quickly, very efficiently, and very affordably. I felt especially good about using a local business, rather than a national operation. We had used big national companies previously, but they were always hard-selling their contract arrangements and their terms were always very confusing and complicated. Not Lakewood Exterminating: they know what they're doing and they do it right, without the hard-sell. And the cost was very reasonable. Five stars out of five.Response from the ownerThanks for the kind words Joe. It was a pleasure helping you out!

Single Service

$175Per Service
  • Our single service spider treatment is the perfect way to deal with unruly infestations without signing up for an ongoing contract. This service includes:
  • Spot treatments in affected areas like basements, corners, and around windows (spider control usually doesn’t require treatment of an entire living space).
  • Removal of active spider webs inside and outside the home and garage.

What You Get With Our Spider Extermination

  • Inspection and Consultation. We can look at your issue and tell you what spider you have and what causes them to be there.
  • Spider Web Removal. We will use our webster duster to knock down active webs inside and out. If you have old cobwebs inside we can give you an estimate to vacuum them. Outside we use telescopic poles to get hard to reach webs.
  • Chemical Treatment. A microencapsulated pyrethroid works the best to get rid of spiders. Our backpack sprayers have pole attachments. This enables us to spray the highest places of your home. Not many exterminators use this tool!
  • Recommendations on how to keep spiders at bay. You will appreciate the advice on what you can do to keep spiders from coming back!

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.
