While most spiders typically do more good than harm, no one wants them taking over their property! No matter where you live or work, there are endless spots for these eight-legged creatures to hide. It’s important to understand how to control their population before they develop into a full-blown infestation or a potential hazard. There are poisonous spiders throughout Richmond and Northern Virginia, and prevention is key!

Spider extermination services
Although most spiders are actually beneficial in keeping other pest populations under control, no one wants them overrunning their property. Especially when it comes to poisonous types, spider removal requires the help of a trained expert. Call Connor’s today for professional spider removal.
Outdoor spiders vs. house spiders
There are two different kinds of spiders: house and outdoor. While some outdoor spiders may enter buildings through cracks and other openings, others may be carried in on items like plants, furniture, boxes, and firewood. House spiders, on the other hand, have most likely been inside of your home for years. Most spiders prefer hiding in dark and undisturbed areas, and will only bite when provoked, squished, or pinched. Regular vacuuming and sweeping of windows, corners, storage areas, and basements can help control a house spider population, unless you have an infestation.

Get rid of spiders with Connor's
Spiders may be a beneficial part of the ecosystem, feeding on other insects, but they aren’t usually welcome in homes or businesses. The majority of spiders in the area are built for the outdoors, and they don’t prefer living inside or around humans. In this area, it is extra important to seal your home or business to help keep spider infestations from occurring. Brown recluses and brown widow spiders are both seen in our region, making it essential to always call in the trained eye of a professional. Connor’s provides the best spider prevention, control, and removal services; call us today to set up an appointment!
