When To Hire a Spider Exterminator

September 7, 2022

Insects getting into your home is common, and seeing the occasional spider is far from abnormal. Spiders are quite beneficial to the local environment as they eat more annoying pests such as mosquitos. However, having too many spiders is bad and can cause concern, just like any other type of infestation. If you’ve been wondering will pest control help with spiders, the answer is yes.

When Should You Call Pest Control for Spiders?

  • When You See Increased Signs of Spiders: Seeing one spider every so often is no reason for concern. However, if you see several spiders or signs of increased spider habitation, such as webs and egg sacs, it’s time to call a professional. Also, if you see dangerous spiders such as black widows or brown recluse spiders, you shouldn’t hesitate to call an exterminator for assistance.
  • You Have Problems With Other Insects: Spiders, like other insects and animals, live in areas where food is easily accessible. If you’ve been having problems with other insect infestations, spiders infesting your home is a possibility due to the available source of food. When hiring a professional for spider removal, having other infestations addressed will be required to fully fix your pest problem.
  • You Find Signs of Spiders In Unusual Places: Spiders tend to nest in out-of-the-way areas of your home. If you find signs of spiders in areas of your home such as your basement, attic, a cluttered storage room, or in your crawlspace, it’s time to call an exterminator. Also, check for signs of spiders in areas such as the corners of rooms and ceilings or around windows.
  • You Have Several Entry Points: If you’ve seen a lot of spiders in your home checking for entry points can give you ideas of where they are getting in. Spiders can get in through cracks in your home’s external structure, broken windows, drafty doors, and unsealed vents, just to name a few common entry points.

Final Thoughts

If you have a spider infestation or have been seeing more of them due to the summer heat, a professional can help. While many spiders are both useful and harmless, you do not necessarily want them taking over your home. Plus, not every species of spider is harmless many of them are poisonous to humans and can present a danger to you and your family. If you’ve seen any of the above signs of spiders, contact a professional today.
