Spiders are often referred to as insects but they are actually arachnids. They have eight legs, no antennae, no wings and they feed on insects.
Spiders are predators that paralyze or kill their prey with venom. There are basically two types of spiders; web-builders and hunters. Spiders of several different species can be found in and around your property.
House spiders will move indoors and under sheltered areas to build their webs. They are found on ceilings, around doors, windows and outdoor light fixtures.
Hunting spiders are found in flower beds, bush and shrub areas, under decks and porches, around walls and storage areas.
Many species of spiders are household pests and according to many of our current customers "one spider in a house is one too many".
Spiders commonly found in a home may include the house spider, cellar spiders and jumping spiders, but there may be the occasional visit by a wolf spider or in some cases a black widow.
As with most structural pests, control efforts depend on the type of spider involved. Each situation will be different due to varying conditions of furnishings, construction and activity.
The technicians of Harris Pest Control, Inc. are trained to locate and identify the spider species in a given situation. Once the type and location of the spider population has been established a treatment process will be implemented.
The program will target known and suspected areas of activity. Treatment processes will include both interior and exterior areas of the structure. Web removal is a critical element of a successful spider program and should be performed with each service procedure.
Spider control is part of our standard pest control service. When you contact our office, we should be able to provide you with a general cost, as well as answer any questions you may have.
