About Spiders

There are around 3,000 species of spiders in North America alone. While spiders are predators, feeding mainly on insects and other small arthropods, they can be found wherever food is available. Black widow and brown recluse spiders are especially harmful to people and pets.

Spiders require an in-depth process to ensure eradication and population control. After an initial inspection, the identification of the problem species is made. Elimination of unwanted spiders starts first with preventive action. Making sure structures are screened and secure is key. Proper lighting placed outside entrances to lessen prey attractiveness, keeping your lawn well-manicured, clearing unneeded boxes, paper, clothing and lumber piles off the premises are all helpful in making your business or home a spider-free environment. Timely removal of spiders and their eggs via vacuum is important so that you don't deal later with their offspring. Insecticides around the perimeter and inside the home are helpful for the long-term extermination of spiders and their offspring.
