Pest: Spiders

Believe it or not, it’s actually a good sign if you spot the occasional spider dwelling in your home or business. The only reason it’s there is because it wandered in unintentionally. Spiders can be looked upon as beneficial insects in nature because they happen to eat smaller, harmful insects. There are over 40,000 different species of spiders located throughout the world and they reside all over the planet. Most species are completely harmless with only a small percentage being dangerous.

However, when homeowners or business owners spot them, they usually prefer them to be gone. Moreover, if there is a spider infestation, it becomes absolutely necessary to have them removed. The real problem with spiders is that they are terrifying to people. Although most species are not poisonous, many do in fact bite and that’s why it’s a great idea to give us a call. Seaside Pest Control has experience providing Spider control and extermination services throughout British Columbia.

Since spiders seem to wander into interior spaces via tiny entrances you may not see, our exterminators will thoroughly examine your premises for cracks and crevices. We can either utilize exclusion methods by permanently sealing these areas up or use an exterior perimeter detailing service to spray pesticides which will keep them away from those particular entrances. The average spraying takes about an hour to complete.

If you’re experiencing a severe infestation, our technicians may require more spraying time for optimal results. We also ask that people and pets vacate the establishment for a minimum of four hours after the initial treatment. All the treatments are done taking in consideration the safety of all the individuals in and around that establishment.
