Spider Pest Control
House spiders and other miscellaneous New England spiders are mostly nuisance pests that are relatively harmless. However, the “creeps me out” effect is high! You can make a strong case for why your home is better off with them but, nay-nay – action is required!!
Warmth and moisture, compared to the dry and cold outdoors, is good for termites, stink bugs, ladybugs, earwigs, crickets, and ants. This is even better for spiders who find these pests to be delectable. Naturally, spiders will set up webs in areas where these pests wander during colder months—in the pantry and near the warmth of washers and dryers. Since these are higher traffic areas, walking into a web gets a little more probable.
Treatment and Customer Preparation
Please prepare for your Graduate spider treatment by providing our service technician with access to the basement, bedroom, and living area room perimeters. With the exception of furniture, please move stored items away from the walls. Contact our office for full preparation details.
Good housekeeping is always helpful when dealing with any insect pest and so too, it is helpful with spiders. Keep boxes, old equipment, and other items neatly stored on shelves, particularly in garages and basements. Clean up and dispose of trash, debris, old equipment, etc. Repair screens and maintain the weather-stripping around doors and windows. Inside the house, spiders and their webs can be eliminated by using a broom or vacuum cleaner.
