Spider Control Tips

While cobwebs and spiders may make good fall decorations, it's no treat if they give you the creepy crawlies. There are many different types of spiders and they come in all different sizes, colors and shapes. Luckily even though some people may get a slight reaction to spider bites, there are no poisonous spiders native to Pennsylvania. So if you just can't deal with the spiders any longer, give us a call and we can come out and do a treatment for you.

Whether you want just the exterior treated or both your interior and exterior treated, here are a few things to make your treatment more successful:

Preferably the day before your scheduled treatment, take a broom and knock down any cobwebs that may be hanging around. We spray under your eaves, around your window and door frames, and up into your porch ceiling so concentrate on these areas. This will ensure good coverage of our spray to the exterior of your home.

If you are planning on having the exterior of your home washed, do it before your treatment.

Keep leaves and other debris cleaned up and away from your foundation and trim bushes and shrubs back away from the walls of your home.

We use a slow acting, microencapsulated product that lasts about 30 days. Microencapsulated means that even if it gets wet, once it dries itwill reactive itself. Also keep in mind that spiders have a raised body on skinny legs, so not much of the actual spider touches the surface.They will die, but not immediately.
