The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Spider Exterminator


The only thing scarier than a spider is a hundred spiders. Pray you never experience it – but if you do, rest assured that a spider exterminator will get you out of it alive.

Everybody tells you spiders aren’t dangerous, and they’re even great at controlling other pests. It’s true that they won’t harm you unless provoked, and fatal bites are incredibly rare. But some kinds of spiders do bite, and you can easily get into a situation where you’re seeing spiders in every room.

That’s definitely a problem. 

Anybody can be forgiven for letting a pest situation get out of hand. There’s barely enough time to do the dishes, let alone tidy up a whole house! Luckily, you’ve got a safety net in case things turn dire. A professional spider exterminator can make the problem go away.

They’ll come to your house armed with several solutions. Whether you want a treatment that keeps your family and pets safe, or you don’t mind the house being a no-man’s-land for a couple hours, they’ve got you covered. The pesticide may not take the first time, but the exterminator won’t leave your side until it does.

Here are some of the benefits of hiring a professional spider exterminator.

2nd and 3rd Visits

A good exterminator will always come back to make sure the job is done. It’s not uncommon for a spider infestation to require multiple fumigations, so most exterminators expect to make another visit anyway.

It can make you nervous, to see a lot of spiders and watch them get into every nook and cranny in your room. Rest assured that you’ve got someone on your side, at your beck and call, ready to flush them out and make your house yours again. Nothing like a little peace of mind.

They Know What They’re Doing

An exterminator has your satisfaction as the top priority. They’ve gone to dozens of homes and seen every type of way an infestation can hide, giving them the expertise they need to solve your case efficiently. What’s more, exterminators receive continual training. They know the safety precautions for their pesticides inside and out, ensuring a thorough and safe job.

Choice of Pesticides

Non-toxic, plant-based treatments ensure that your family and pets stay safe, no matter what. These organic pesticides might be all you need to get rid of a pesky spider infestation. What’s more, you won’t need to do any prep work before the exterminator comes. There’s no need to bring out the big guns unless the situation’s really bad.

It’s all about the strong-scented oils. Spiders hate the following:

● Peppermint
● Lavender
● Thyme oil
● Rose
● Tea-tree 

Of course, you may actually need the big guns. Spider smoke bombs can reach into every corner of a home and stop all of your eight-legged visitors dead in their tracks. You may need to vacate for some hours, but you won’t find any creepy crawlies once you return.

If you’re worried about a lingering smell, don’t worry.  No spider exterminator would use a fumigator that sticks around forever. These solutions are meant to help people, so just follow all safety precautions, and you’ll be fine.

If You’re Picky, You Have Options

It can make some people nervous, having a bunch of equipment spraying fumes in the house. Fortunately, you’ll know what you’re getting into well ahead of time, and you can talk to your exterminator about every possible option. The exterminator starts their work by surveying your house, at which point you can make your concerns known and find out about different extermination techniques. 

Some infestations can be so persistent that you need repeat visits over a longer period of time. Your spider exterminator will be able to offer you package deals to help you maintain vigilance over the outer perimeter, interiors, attic, and crawl spaces.

Prevention Tips

Your exterminator will leave you with all the best ways to prevent a re-infestation. These include:

● Citrus or lemon-scented cleaner
● Keeping tidy
● Keeping clean
● Picking up your laundry
● Clearing out webs
● Making sure there’s no leftover food sitting out anywhere
● Getting a cat

Of course, getting a cat isn’t viable for everyone. We’re just saying it works. Cats love to sniff out and subdue pests so much that they’re one of the most widespread forms of pest control in New York City shops.

Nothing attracts bugs – and therefore spiders, who hunt bugs – like food sitting out. Leave a dish out with a bit of sauce left on it, and it’s only a matter of time before the little guys start swarming. Wash all dishes immediately and seal up as many food containers and boxes as you can.

Believe it or not, your furniture setup can attract or repel pests. Bugs and spiders want to hide behind objects; if you give them fewer hiding places, you’ll find less of them roaming around.

Piles of laundry are also a huge no-no. Spiders love hiding in clothes lying on the ground – like that pair of shorts you’re about to put on.

Did you know that spiders taste through their feet and they hate citrus? Spray or mop your surfaces with a lemon-scented cleaner (as long as it’s appropriate for that surface), and you’ll gain a line of defense against arachnids.

Keep these tips in mind, and you may never have to hire an exterminator again.

Hiring a Spider Exterminator Doesn’t Have to Be a Hassle

We get it – you’re not eager to move everything around your house right now. What if the problem just kinda… goes away?

Pests don’t go away. Your situation won’t change until you get up and make a change. The sooner, the better, too, since they’re constantly reproducing. You’ll only be sure they won’t become an unmanageable problem if you put a stop to the problem right now.

Talk with your spider exterminator to get the best coverage for you. It may be a one-time visit, or it could be a whole campaign that wipes out termites, ants, and spiders alike. All you have to do is start the conversation. Your exterminator will work with you to make it as easy and convenient as possible. They can also help you out with extensive preventative measures. Once they’re done, it’ll be like they were never there. Contact us for an estimate today.
