How Are Pest Control and Spider Control Related?

When our team is asked to assist with spider control measures, we take the following steps:

  • Remove Sources of Prey: Insects and other tiny arthropods are the main food source for spiders. Reducing the availability of food for spiders in your home will result in fewer pests in your home overall. Our team’s spider control solutions will leave your home cleaner and less appealing to spiders.
  • Frequently Clean and Sanitize: Upholding a hygienic and clean environment is necessary for effective insect management and, therefore, spider control. Frequent cleaning minimizes the accumulation of organic matter, dirt, and other fragments that may serve as insect magnets. In short, since other insects aren’t attracted to clean environments, spiders won’t be attracted to these areas, either.
  • Secure Entry Points: One common approach to pest control is caulking building cracks, gaps, and other openings that serve as bug entry points. This keeps spiders out of indoor places and keeps common pests out of the area. Effective spider control hinges on preventing pests and spiders from entering in the first place.

Regardless of which came first, the spider or the pests, it’s highly likely that the spiders stuck around for the pests, which means that spider control is best handled by pest control. Contact our team today to learn more.
