Spider removal methods

A majority of spider infestations are more of an annoyance – particularly their webs. However, on occasions, more serious situations can occur especially when it involves spiders that pose a bite risk.

How to get rid of spiders in the house

There are many DIY spider repellent and spider control products available. Here are some things you can do for spider control in your home:

  • Vacuum regularly, high and low - particularly sheltered spots such as beneath worktops, backs of cupboards or under/behind large furniture.
  • Remove noticeable webs - on a regular basis.
  • Fill in gaps - in walls, around pipework and under doors to deter entry.

  • Remove sheltering sites - like firewood piles, garden bags, compost piles and general clutter from near your property. Do not place boxes on the floor and by walls, and use tape to close up box openings.

  • Deter all insects - use lighting in a way that is less attractive to the insects (flies) that spiders feed on.

  • Ventilate - make sure crawlspaces and attics are well-ventilated, in order to decrease moisture.

  • Be careful - examine objects like grocery bags that were placed down outside, as well as packages that have been left outdoors. Spiders can travel into your home via these objects.

How to get rid of spiders outside

If you have many spiders outside your property and want to keep them from coming indoors, prevent shrubs from touching your structure (you can trim them). Spiders can use shrubs for shelter. But remember that spiders are actually helpful creatures, and so if you are not experiencing a lot of them in the area outside your property, avoid managing them in this area.

How to get rid of spider webs

Another part of spider management is removing spider webs. Vacuuming can eliminate them. After vacuuming, close the bag and put it in the trash outside as soon as you can. Western Exterminator experts can also help you get rid of spider webs - contact us for help today.
