One of the most feared home invaders, spiders are responsible for more phobias than any other pest. Sometimes this fear can be well founded. A bite by the wrong spider, a black widow or brown recluse, can be painful and even dangerous if you have a bad reaction to the venom. Despite their fearsome reputation, deaths from spider bites are very rare, running about six per decade in the U.S.
Spiders are arachnids, not insects. They are built and behave differently than insects. Because of this, pest control based on the biology and behavior of an insect is virtually ineffective on spiders.
Spiders are predators. They eat insects. One of the benefits of a good insect control program on your home or business is that if you remove the insects, the spiders source of food, the spiders won’t have a reason to hang around.
- Good insect control will reduce spider population
- Seal cracks and crevices
- Rregularly clean common “web areas”
