The Four Season Approach: How We Treat Spider Infestations This Spring

The Four Season Approach

Spring is the time when the warmth and longer days lure us outdoors to enjoy nature’s grand spectacle. However, for spider pest control in Toronto, this time of year is when they emerge from their winter slumber and search for new hunting grounds. While spiders can help control other pests, like flies and mosquitoes, many homeowners find these eight-legged creatures unsightly and even scary. While DIY methods like spider repellent are not always successful, the experts at Truly Nolen can help keep your home free of pests.

In this article, we explore the Four Season Approach to spider infestations, a comprehensive treatment plan that covers everything from prevention and exclusion to chemical treatment. If you are looking for tips on how to get rid of spiders in the house, the Four Season Approach can help.

Springtime: The Prime Time for Arachnids

As spring unfolds and nature springs back to life, so does the activity of arachnids. Blooming flowers, lush foliage, and emerging insects provide ideal conditions for spiders to multiply and establish their territory. As the season progresses, you’re more likely to notice cobwebs in the corners of your windows or spot the occasional arachnid in your living space. Understanding your unwelcome guests’ life cycle and habits can be a significant first step in controlling their population.

Understanding Spider Lifecycle in Spring

Spiders emerge in spring to begin their annual life cycle. Females lay their eggs, which hatch into spiderlings. These newly hatched babies disperse throughout your home or property by ‘ballooning’ on silk threads, setting up colonies in preferred habitats. Therefore, spring is the perfect time for homeowners to implement preventative measures and curtail the growth of the population.

Spider Infestations and Your Home: What You Need to Know

Despite their often intimidating appearance, most spiders found in and around Canadian homes are harmless. Few species pose a significant risk to humans or pets under normal circumstances; however, a high population can cause discomfort and stress. Furthermore, some individuals can be allergic to bites, and in such situations, it becomes essential to manage and control the population within your home.

So, why do spiders enter your home?

Spiders primarily infiltrate homes in search of three things: food, shelter, and mates. As spring unfolds, an increase in other insects, such as flies and mosquitoes, can draw these predators inside your abode. Spaces within homes such as basements, garages, and eaves are attractive to spiders as they offer shelter and potential hunting grounds.

What are the signs of an infestation?

Visible signs of an infestation include an increase in spider sightings, the discovery of webs, or the finding of egg sacs. These sacs can hold hundreds of eggs, indicating a potential population boom if not addressed promptly.

The Innovative Four-Season Approach to Spider Control

At Truly Nolen, we believe that effective pest control isn’t just about responding to infestations when they happen but adopting a proactive approach. That’s why we introduced the Four-Season Approach to spider control. This innovative strategy ensures we’re one step ahead of the arachnids, whatever the time of year. Let’s explore how this works in practice.

A Closer Look at the Four-Season Approach

This method divides the control process into four phases coinciding with the changing seasons – spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each stage has specific objectives, action plans, and treatments that are tailor-made for the weather conditions and behavioural patterns of these pests during that particular time of year.

The Four Season Approach


Spring is a crucial time in the life cycle of a spider. As temperatures start to rise, they resume their activities and initiate the process of breeding. This is the phase when we focus on preventing their potential population surge. By conducting meticulous inspections, we identify and treat potential breeding spots within your home. Our teams ensure that all of these areas are treated appropriately to halt the impending growth of their numbers.


In summer, the outdoors becomes more appealing to arachnids, and they try to move outward. We utilize this shift in their behaviour and conduct rigorous inspections around the exterior perimeter of your property. By doing so, we aim to create a barrier to prevent them from gaining access to your home, ensuring a secure and serene summer for you and your family.


As summer fades into fall, the lowering temperatures drive these pests back into the warm comforts of your home. During this season, we focus on monitoring the indoor environment for any signs of their return. If their presence is detected, we take immediate action to address the issue and ensure that your home remains a no-entry zone for these eight-legged invaders.


Winter is typically a dormant period marking the perfect time to fortify your home’s defenses against them. We take this opportunity to identify and seal various entry points around your home, preventing them from sneaking back in when spring returns. This ensures that your home remains a spider free zone throughout the year.
