Spiders, whether they are harmless common house spiders or dangerous black widows, are never welcome into the home, and a spider infestation can be the stuff of nightmares if you have a spider phobia. Luckily, you can hire a pest control professional to not only remove the infestation for you, but ensure that your home is kept safe from infestations for the foreseeable future. Here is what you can expect when you hire a pest control pro to deal with a spider infestation:
It all starts with the inspection
Before any control methods are implemented, a pest control specialist will first run a full inspection in order to determine the extent of the infestation, the species behind it, and the location of the various spider nests. This inspection process will also help identify common entry points into the home and even other pest infestations that may be present. Since spiders feed on insects, there is a chance that there is a secondary pest infestation which supplies all the food that the spiders need.
The control process
Once all the information has been collected through the inspection process, it is time for the control stage. During this stage, the pro will remove all the spiders and spider webs that are out in the open, and then use residual insecticides on the various spider entry points of the home. Residual insecticide may also be applied in crawl spaces and basements, since those are areas where you have a lot of spider and other insect activity. The insecticides will act as a shield that will not only remove current infestation but also offer long term protection against future ones. Finally, the pro will implement any other prevention measures that are needed, and recommend certain measures that you should implement on an ongoing basis (keeping the home free of clutter, making sure that you have screens on your doors and windows, etc.).
