Our trained technicians are capable of treating your property so that you do not have to worry about spiders anymore.
Spiders come in all shapes and sizes and some can harm humans. It is important that you keep your home or business clear of spiders to ensure that the residents are comfortable. Humans react differently to spiders even if the spider has had no contact with the person. Arachnophobia is real and it would not be wise to bring about unnecessary tension to those with such a fear.
It is advisable to have your property treated on a regular basis as determined by the technician to give you peace of mind. To help you along your way to eliminate spiders from your home or business, here are some tips in response to commonly asked questions posed by our clients.
How to Prevent Spiders from Spreading?
Spiders usually hide in voids and rarely expose themselves. Thankfully, they are not attracted to humans. Instead, they like to feed of other insects. Having a property that is not clean and filled with insects will attract spiders. You must ensure that you clean your property on a regular basis to remove traces of insect and arthropod life. Therefore, treating spiders also requires general pest control treatment.
How to Get Rid of Spiders from Your Property?
Professional pest controllers have treatment products that are capable of eliminating the spider that reproduces other spiders. Often, the spider you need to target is hard to find. Whilst the offspring might roam around, killing them will not remove the spider infiltration.
How to Prevent Spiders in the House?
Preventing spiders entering your home requires you to clean your property on a regular basis. Vacuuming, dusting and mopping all parts of your property on a regular basis is essential. This will help to remove spiders, their webs and any eggs. In addition, you also want to remove clutter around your home. This can attract other insects which will provide a feeding frenzy for spiders. Here are a few tips:
- Do not leave food exposed. Seal it in containers.
- Remove rotting food material, plant material and dead tree stumps.
- Ensure that pets do not leave smaller dead animals lying around in the garden.
- Clean every part of your property, even if it is an area you rarely frequent.
- Keep your property well ventilated to prevent dampness.
- Ensure that your children do not leave rubbish lying in their bedroom or bathroom.
- Keep cupboards and storage areas clean on a regular basis.
- Ensure that your bathroom has no water ponding in the basin, shower base or bath tub.
- Seal external doors and windows.
- Ensure that vents and filters are cleaned thoroughly.
- Fit opening windows with flyscreens.
- Caulk any gaps in your property, especially floorboards, ceilings and walls.
- Keep your rubbish bins clean and tidy and wipe down with disinfectant on a regular basis.
How to Prevent Spiders from Coming Back?
Regular cleaning and treatment is required. A clean property does go a long way to eliminate spiders. However, we do understand that you have other jobs too! Therefore, it is wise to engage a pest controller on a regular basis to treat your home or business. This will ensure that all pests are kept of out of your way so that you can get on with doing things that matter.
Can I Prevent Spiders Myself?
Household products can help to eliminate spiders from your property. However, the product needs to be relatively strong considering that some spiders are capable of surviving supermarket pest treatment products. You do not want to be seen standing in front of a spider spraying repeatedly at the spider as it scurries away! Professional pest controllers carry industrial grade treatment products that have been created to effectively remove spiders, their web and any offspring.
