Spiders probably aren’t on the top of everyone’s list of annoying pests, in fact they probably rank below most of the other common pests such as rats and roaches; however they can cause many of the same problems that other pests do and have some traits that make them even worse in many respects than other insects and rodents.

Most species of spiders aren’t likely to cause huge infestations, but even having a few in your home can present an issue if you are bitten by them. There are even a couple of species such as black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders that are a serious threat to your health and have been known to cause fatalities with their bites. 

Here at the best do-it-yourself pest control store you’ll find all the spider repellent, spray, traps, poison, and bait you will ever need for effective spider control. And of course we also offer the free expert advice you have come to expect from us. We’ll have your home spider-free in no time.

How To Get Rid Of Spiders – A Few Helpful Tips

Destroy Their Webs

For this you will need a cobweb duster and a bit of free time. The way to do this most effectively is to go through your entire house and dust everywhere spiders might be hiding, such as corners, closets and other hidden or out of the way places. You want to be sure to get rid of every web you see, as the spiders will then have little choice but to search out new areas to infest.

Use Spider Repellent & Spray

Getting rid of their webs likely isn’t going to be enough, and you’ll want to invest in a proper spider repellent or spray to make sure that all the spiders in your house are eliminated. Once again you should apply these products wherever the insects might be hiding, closets and storage spaces are a favorite of virtually all species of spider.

Use Spider Traps

Like most other pests, spiders are susceptible to traps. In fact, many of the same varieties of traps that work on flies and roaches are useful against spiders. The most commonly used spider traps are glue based traps, which will capture the insects and not allow them to escape. These will provide effective and complete control of spider problems, especially when combined with the methods mentioned above.

More Tips For Getting Rid of Spiders

Since most spiders are ‘beneficial critters’, it is generally not necessary that you utilize spider repellents or insecticides for spider control. In fact, step #1 is easy, completely free and will usually take care of any spider problems that might occur in your home. If necessary, steps #2 and #3 will take care of more serious spider control problems:

  • Regularly clean your home and brush spider webs off the outside of your home with a broom or a vacuum. Remove spiders’ hiding spots when possible. In storage areas, place boxes on shelves above the floors and as far away from walls as possible.
  • Prevent spiders from coming inside your home by sealing the cracks of your home’s foundation as well as any gaps around windows and doors.
  • If a need for heavy spider extermination occurs, then you may choose to control them with the following spider control products that you can easily use yourself:

Recommended Products for Spider Control:

1. Spray a liquid insecticide concentrate such as Suspend SC, Cyper WP or Demon WP around the perimeter of the building, and around windows and doors and other entry points. You can also spray inside along the baseboards and in the upper corners and bottom corners of walls. This is especially important in the garage and/or basement.

2. For heavier infestations dusting with an insecticide dust such as Delta Dust may also be needed. Dust in attics and under baseboards and in wall voids.

Spiders and Their Behavior

Generally speaking spiders aren’t as troublesome as other pests in a day to day living environment. They usually only cause issues when there are large numbers of them or they intrude on your daily activities. Other than just being super freaky, one of the bigger threats they pose is biting you while you sleep, as they are usually nocturnal and will occasionally go out searching for food at night.

Should they happen to come across a sleeping person they might feel threatened and bite, leaving that person with a painful red welt, or worse. They are usually content to lay in wait for prey to come to them. This in and of itself can present a problem, as their webs are often and eyesore in the form of cobwebs, and reveal the fact that there is a not insignificant spider population in the house.
