Spider Treatment and Prevention Tips For Arizona

Did you know there are more than 40,000 species of spiders worldwide? In Arizona, there are 26 species of spiders. Some people mistake them for insects, but they are classified as arachnids with eight legs. While they get a bad reputation in movies as being venomous and predatory, only a few species pose a real threat to human health. Yet you still don’t want to share your home with them.

Here are some simple yet effective spider control tips from your trusted pest control technicians in Mesa.

Spider Prevention Tips

  1. Limit points of entry: Take a look at the external foundation of your property to see if you can find any cracks that may have developed. Apply a water-resistant sealant or caulk to fill the voids. If you spot any holes in your window screens, repair or replace them, and check the seals around windows and doors. Where necessary, apply weatherstripping or sweeps.
  2. Clear external vegetation and debris: Trim tree branches, shrubs, and vegetation away from your home. Don’t put firewood or compost piles right up against your home, and make sure to remove dead trees and other debris as needed.
  3. Clean regularly: Reduce clutter in your home that could act as a hiding place. Repair dripping faucets and leaking pipes immediately. Vacuum spider webs as you see them.
  4. Reduce lighting: Spiders and other critters are attracted to bright indoor lighting that’s visible from the outside. Also, exterior lights will attract flying insects that spiders want to prey upon.

Are Spiders Dangerous?

Spiders aren’t all bad. In fact, they reduce the number of other nuisance pests in your home, including cockroaches and flies. Some pose a danger to humans, though. The two most dangerous venomous spiders include the brown recluse and the black widow, both of which have been found in Phoenix. Other spider species common to this area include jumping spiders, giant crab spiders, black and yellow garden spiders, tarantulas, and wolf spiders.

Even if the spiders in your home aren’t poisonous to you, the fact that they have chosen to live with you is concerning. They typically go where they have easy access to shelter, food, and water. But they are also attracted to a diet of flies, moths, and other pests. So, if you have encountered a large spider population in your house, this is an indication of other pest-related problems that should be taken care of.

Why Get Help From a Professional?

Many people decide to get rid of the spiders on their own by spending money on DIY pest control solutions from the store. However, while you may be drawn into these products that claim to be highly effective for eradicating pests like spiders, they often fail to eliminate spiders and other pests that have gotten under your flooring, inside walls, and within voids around wiring and pipes.

When they nest out of harm’s way, they can actively reproduce and expand their population throughout your home fairly quickly. An experienced Mesa exterminator can inspect the area and determine the extent of the infestation to provide an efficient and safe solution to the problem.
