As the temperature rises, it’s common to see small invaders like spiders making their way into and around your home. Regardless of the species of spider, the health and safety risks associated with these pests can put your loved ones in danger. This is why it’s essential to have a licensed spider control professional help you eliminate spiders from your home. While some may view spiders as a mere annoyance, others may have a serious fear of them. Either way, encountering a spider in your home or business can be unpleasant.
To prevent an infestation, Eastside Pest Control is here to assist. With tailored spider control and prevention services, you can rely on us to keep the spider population under control in and around your home or business in Vancouver BC and nearby suburbs.
Spiders can be a beneficial addition to your garden, as they help keep other insects in check. However, the sight of spiders in your home or commercial space can be unsettling. While most species of spiders are harmless, some can be venomous and pose a threat to human health. During inclement weather, spiders often find their way inside and seek refuge in dark, cool areas, especially during the summer. They like to spin their webs in places like garages or basements, but can also be found in the corners of ceilings and other nooks and crannies. Spiders settle near a food source, so if you see spiders, there may already be other insects like ants or flies present in your living or working space.
It’s important to note that spiders can reproduce quickly indoors, as each female spider can lay up to 100 eggs at once. If this occurs, an infestation could soon follow.
How Do You Know If You Have a Spider Infestation?
There are several signs that can indicate a spider infestation:
- Increased spider activity: If you start to see more spiders around your home, it could be a sign of an infestation.
- Webs and egg sacs: Spider webs and egg sacs are often the first signs of a spider infestation. You may find webs in corners, around window frames, or in basements and attics.
- Unusual spider behavior: If you notice spiders exhibiting unusual behavior such as aggressive behavior or daytime activity, it could be a sign of an infestation.
- Presence of spider bites: If you start to experience unexplained bites, it could be a sign that there are spiders in your home.
If you suspect a spider infestation, it’s best to consult with a pest control professional who can properly identify the type of spider and determine the best course of action for removing it from your home.
At Eastside Pest Control, we prioritize the safety of your home and work tirelessly to achieve it. Our spider pest control program is composed of two parts – spider spraying and elimination of their food sources. Spiders that stay close to their nests are easily managed through spraying, however, spiders that move frequently and hunt for food pose a greater challenge.
To effectively get rid of hunting spiders, we target and eliminate the insect food sources that they rely on, such as ants. Our technicians are well-trained and use only eco-friendly solutions that pose minimal health risks. You can feel secure in knowing that our solutions keep you safe from spiders without exposing you or your loved ones to harmful chemicals.
