Having a spider outside your home is like having your own personal, all-natural, no cost pest control. Spiders set up webs to capture other insects, keeping those pests from bothering you and your family.
But inside, spiders are a nuisance. They are fast, “gross,” and some of them bite. Even outside, there are spiders that can be dangerous and often indicate a larger pest control problem. This makes it important to learn how to get rid of spiders. Whether you’re the type of person that can’t stand the sight of a spider, or someone that carefully carries them outside to free them, it is best to call a professional pest control company for a more effective spider treatment.

Despite all they do keep pest populations down, many people dislike spiders, and a few have an intense phobia. Of the over 35,000 species of spiders in the world, the majority of spiders are harmless for humans. Yet no one wants to live with a spider on their property as it invades their personal space.
Spiders can find their way into homes and businesses through open windows and doors, as well as through tiny openings in foundations, walls, under eaves, and other locations. Even larger spiders can fit in small spaces, as their bodies are able to squeeze through the smallest of spaces.
Spiders wander, which means that even without a pest problem, spiders may find their way onto your property in search of food or shelter. But spiders are also attracted to areas with ample food supply, meaning other flying insects. Once there, some spiders will build webs in higher locations to capture prey. Hunting spiders will stay closer to the ground to actively hunt food. Spiders then kill prey with a venomous bite.
Almost all spiders bite and inject venom into their prey. But a smaller percentage of spiders is capable of piercing human skin, and an even smaller number are able to inject venom that harms human beings. Even those that do may only cause itchy bites or small red welts. But there are some spiders that can cause painful or potentially dangerous bites for humans. For example:
Children, the elderly, and those with auto-immune disorders are at the most risk for adverse reactions to a spider bite and should consider seeking medical attention.
For other spiders, the lack of danger does not mean there is nothing to worry about. Spiders themselves are an unwanted guest, and the presence of spiders indicates that there are enough insects around to create a sustainable food source, meaning the property likely has a different pest problem.
Most of the time, people realize they are living with a spider when they see it crawling along a wall or floor, or hanging from a web in a corner of their home. By knowing the signs of spiders, you can locate and remove them before they have a chance to bite. Especially if you have a phobia, you might watch for signs so you can have the problem handled before you see the spider itself.
Common signs of spiders include:
Any of these signs are indicative of a spider issue. In addition, if you see a spider, it’s a sign that there are entrance points and/or other pests that need to be treated to prevent future spiders from entering.
Because spiders are not social, they do not infest a home like termites or bed bugs. The best treatment for spiders is ongoing, season pest control. More than just spiders, season pest control handles many common pests like flies, ants, cockroaches, centipedes, and earwigs by eliminating pests already on the property and creating a protective barrier around your property. This keeps additional pests from entering, removing both the pests themselves and the spider’s food sources.
Seasonal pest control uses formulas that are both safe for use around family and pets, as well as long lasting. Quarterly or bimonthly visits from an exterminator is usually all that’s needed to prevent pests year around. Because spiders – and other pests – are only likely to enter during various seasons, the solutions we use are based on the time of year and the risks to your property.
