Pest Control: Understanding Spiders and How to Eliminate Them

Posted on

If you're a homeowner, then you know that pests can be more than just a nuisance. They can be a real problem. The good news is that understanding spiders and how to eliminate them doesn't have to be a mystery. This blog post looks at what you need to know about spiders and how pest control services can help make your home spider-free.  

Identifying Common Spiders in Your Home 

The first step towards eliminating spiders in your home is identifying which type of spider you are dealing with. Knowing which type of spider is living in your home will help you determine if they pose any risk to you and the best way to get rid of them. Spider guides can be found online, which will help you to ID your spider. Alternatively, you can snap a photo and send it to a pest control agent who will be able to assist you in identifying the type of spider. 

DIY Spider Removal

When it comes to tackling a spider infestation yourself, there are several options available. The simplest solution is vacuuming up any visible webs or spiders and disposing of the vacuum bag right away. You can also use sticky traps — these are inexpensive and effective for catching small numbers of spiders quickly. However, if the infestation is more severe or persistent, it may require a chemical solution such as insecticides or pesticides. When using chemical solutions to remove spiders, it's important that you wear gloves and other protective gear, such as masks or goggles.

Pest Control Services

No matter how big or small your spider problem might be, hiring pest control contractors can help ensure that the job gets done right the first time around and minimise future problems with pests in your home. Professional pest control services use specialised tools and equipment, such as powerful insecticides that aren't available over-the-counter at stores, to eliminate spiders.


If you want to take back control from pesky eight-legged creatures living in your home, now you know what steps need to be taken to do so. Identifying which type of spider has made its way into your abode is key when it comes time for elimination — whether by DIY methods or with professional help from pest control specialists.
