Tired Of Worrying About Spiders Hiding Inside Your House?

Spider Exterminators – Control & Removal

South Florida is home to hundreds of species of spiders, the eight-legged arachnids. Spiders are nature’s insecticide and play a crucial role in controlling insect populations. They do not spread disease and only a few are venomous enough to worry about, but they are frightening to many and are considered to be a nuisance pest for homes and businesses alike. Encountering spiders in our space can be quite disconcerting.

Identifying A Spider Infestation

Spiders enter homes and commercial properties for various reasons. They are attracted by warmth, shelter, and a readily available food supply, which includes other insects. Dark, cluttered spaces, cracks in walls, and neglected corners provide ideal hiding spots for spiders. South Florida’s warm and humid climate further encourages their presence, making spider infestations a common concern for homeowners and businesses. You may have an infestation on your hands if you see: 

  • Unusual Spider Behavior: Spiders are reclusive by nature, so if you observe spiders venturing into well-lit areas during the day, it could indicate a high population density. 
  • Spider Bites: Unexplained spider bites on occupants can be an indication that there are spiders present in the living areas. 
  • Spider Webs: The presence of webs in multiple areas of your home is a strong indication of a spider infestation.
  • Egg Sacs: Spiders lay eggs in silk sacs, which they hide in protected areas. Finding multiple egg sacs around your home suggests a growing spider population.

How to Eliminate A Spider Infestation

If you notice one or more signs of infestation, it’s essential to take action promptly to prevent the infestation from growing. Here’s what you can do: 

  • Regular Cleaning: Keep your home or commercial space clean, minimizing clutter and vacuuming frequently to remove webs and egg sacs. 
  • Seal Entry Points: Seal cracks, gaps, and crevices in walls, windows, and doors to prevent spiders from entering. 
  • Outdoor Maintenance: Trim bushes and trees away from buildings, as branches can act as bridges for spiders to enter. 
  • Natural Deterrents: Use natural remedies like citrus peels, vinegar, or essential oils like peppermint or tea tree oil, which repel spiders. 

Not all spiders are harmful, but if you’re uncertain about the type of spiders you’re dealing with, it’s best to call our residential exterminators to ensure the safety of your family and pets.

Commercial Spider Infestations

If you own or manage a business, you understand the unique challenges of commercial pest control, especially when it comes to spiders. The last thing you would want is for your business to have these unwelcome pests scaring off employees and patrons, and potentially damaging your reputation. Here are some effective strategies to keep spiders at bay in commercial settings: 

  • Clean Regularly: Regularly clean all areas, including storage rooms, offices, and common spaces. Vacuum carpets, sweep floors, and dust corners to remove spider webs and egg sacs. 
  • Clutter Control: Minimize clutter in storage areas. Spiders are attracted to undisturbed, dark spaces. 
  • Proper Waste Management: Dispose of trash promptly and keep dumpsters and trash bins away from the building to reduce potential food sources for spiders. 
  • Seal Cracks and Crevices: Inspect the building for cracks, crevices, and gaps in walls, windows, doors, and foundations. Seal these entry points to prevent spiders from getting inside. 
  • Weather Stripping: Install weather stripping around doors and windows to create a tight seal. 
  • Landscaping: Trim trees, bushes, and plants away from the building. Spiders can use branches as bridges to access the structure. 
  • Exterior Lighting: Use yellow or sodium vapor lights for outdoor lighting. These are less attractive to insects, reducing the spider’s food supply. 
  • Use Spider-Repellent Plants: Plant spider-repellent herbs like lavender, mint, or eucalyptus around the perimeter of the building. 

If you have implemented these prevention measures and are still seeing spiders, it may be time to enlist professional spider exterminators in South Florida. Call us today to schedule your service.
