While house spiders are fairly common, when does the occasional spider-sighting turn into an infestation? There are several signs to be aware of that indicate when extermination might be necessary: if you’re seeing an excess amount of cobwebs, a large amount of spiders, or poisonous spiders, it’s time to call a spider exterminator. What starts as just a few spiders can quickly turn into something out of a nightmare if not handled promptly and effectively.

Spider extermination tactics
When you call the spider exterminators at Ehrlich, a pest control technician will work with you to develop a personalized plan. Each client requires a different approach, which is why we’re proud to offer custom approaches that will prove most effective for your unique situation. In general, we will take the following approach in getting rid of spiders in your property:
- Identify the type of spider.
- Conduct a full property inspection that includes your yard, attached & detached structures, driveway, and home.
- Directly treat spider nests outside your foundation to protect your home during the warmer months along with their food source (other insects).
- Physically remove webs from the outside and inside of your home.
Seal small cracks or entry points if they are contributing to the infestation.
- Discreetly apply material in unfinished basements, voids, and other spider-frequented areas when evidence is noted.
- Place “sticky traps” on the interior to monitor activity.
- Create a full report describing the treatment and how you can protect your home from further infestations.
