How to Get Rid Of Spiders

Spiders are usually associated with our fear of creepy, crawly things. There have been many books written, movies produced, and songs recorded about spiders, usually in a way that builds upon our fear of them. 

 

The majority of spiders do not bother people and it's not common for people to be bitten by them.  However, they are unpleasant to look at and their webs can cause a mess if they infest your home or businessWe use spider control solutions that are comprehensive and safe so the good times go uninterrupted by these nasty, creepy crawly things.

 

Our specialists can help you identify an infestation before it gets out of hand and rid your house of spiders. Contact us and learn how our Home Shield Pest Prevention Programs can help eliminate poisonous spiders, like the brown recluse and black widow from your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I tell if a spider is poisonous?
    Generally speaking, the most common types of poisonous spiders you’ll encounter are the black widow and brown recluse. The black widow is clearly recognizable from the large red hourglass-shaped marking visible on their abdomen. The brown recluse can be slightly more difficult to identify, but it’s certainly possible to do. Look for violin-shaped marking on top of the thorax, as this is their most distinguishing feature. If you encounter a spider in your home that you believe is poisonous, exercise extreme caution. Consider contacting Home Pest Control for expert assistance.
  • How do I keep spiders out of my home?
    There are some simple steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of spiders entering your home. First, be sure that your home is thoroughly sealed. Go around the outside of your home and check that windows, doors, and other points of entry are caulked and weatherstripped. Next, check the exterior of your home for spider webs. If you find webs in your garage, on your porch, or under your carport, use a vacuum to remove them.
  • Are spiders dangerous?
    Most species of spiders aren’t poisonous, and some have fangs that are too small to penetrate the skin of humans. However, a handful of species are highly poisonous and therefore pose a serious danger to human health. The most common venomous spiders you’ll encounter in South Carolina are the brown recluse and the black widow, both of which can deliver bites that require immediate medical treatment.
