Spiders are useful to our environment and ecosystem by helping control the local bug population. These beneficial creatures aren’t so welcome when they come inside of your home or business. While most spiders don’t pose a threat to humans, most people don’t want to share their space with these eight-legged arachnids. Truly Nolen Canada is here to help homeowners and business operators with our innovative and effective approach to spider control that keeps them away all year long.
Our spider removal process focuses on identifying the pest and forming a plan of action to keep them out of your home or business. When you first contact our team, we will make an appointment for an inspection. Our technicians can identify a spider infestation if there are webs around your home or visual confirmation of spider activity.
Sometimes, another insect infestation is present, such as ants or gnats, attracting spiders to your home. Our team can identify and remove the primary infestation to take away the spiders’ food source. After inspecting your property for spiders, we then work on removal techniques to prevent female spiders from nesting and reproducing. Then, we switch to prevention strategies to keep spiders from coming back into your space.
Spiders are frequent house guests all throughout the year, no matter what the temperature is like outside. That’s why our most effective approach to spider prevention and removal for residential and commercial clients is our Four Seasons program. This proactive approach incorporates different strategies for each season to make your home or business even less enticing to common household pests, including spiders.
We remove spider webs inside and treat the exterior of the home to keep insects from trying to get indoors.
Our team seals entry points, clear away webs and applies exterior perimeter treatment.
We apply bait and treatments to landscaping, pavement and gardens to target active insects during the height of the season.
We focus on crawl spaces, attics and basements for pest control with effective dust treatment and spider web removal.
Preventing a new spider infestation is the most essential piece of our approach for removal. Once our team finishes your treatment, it’s up to you to continue practicing prevention strategies so new insects don’t take up residence. The most important tip is to keep your home or business clean. Remove clutter or debris in and around your space so insects don’t use it as a hiding spot.
If you have window screens that are broken or missing, make sure you replace them to give yourself an additional exterior layer between the outdoors and your space. Make sure any gaps around windows and doors are properly sealed so spiders can’t fit inside. Shrubs, bushes and trees should also be trimmed so they aren’t touching your home or business. The most effective way to remove spiders is to use different tactics for each season of the year.
There are thousands of different types, sizes and colors of spiders found all over the world in nearly every type of habitat. Spiders rarely bite humans unless their nests or webs are disturbed. With the exception of a few species, the venom in spider bites is harmless to humans, but some individuals may be hypersensitive and can have a mild to severe allergic reaction when bitten. Spiders feed primarily on other insects, but larger species have been known to feed on small animals such as lizards, birds and millipedes. Spiders in your home can be a sign of a larger pest infestation, and their building of webs indoors can prove to be a nuisance for most homeowners when left untreated. The combination of good sanitation practices and a comprehensive pest control treatment program are necessary to eliminating spiders inside the home.
Spiders are often the sign of a more serious insect infestation in the home. Spiders often hide out in cracks and crevices in well-protected undisturbed areas inside or outside of the home such as; eaves, vaulted ceiling corners, bookcase voids, under patio furniture or play equipment etc. Some spiders are attracted to moisture, and can be found lurking in crawl spaces, basements near leaky plumbing or other areas where moisture can be found. Others prefer warm, dry areas such as attics, near air vents and the upper corners of rooms or vaulted ceilings. Spiders can be found year round and their presence is usually detected by visual inspection and the presence of webs in and around the home.
Spiders eat other insects, so protecting your home from other types of insects and keeping a tidy home can often times be the first line of defense against spiders indoors.
There are several steps you can take as a homeowner to help prevent a spider infestation in the home.
