Spider Control

For some people, spiders are the most terrifying things in the world, while for others they mostly go by unnoticed. Either way, spiders and their webs can lend a shabby, neglected appearance to your home. While most spider species are completely harmless, a handful are potentially deadly to pets and humans. 

If your home and family are suffering from a spider infestation, it might be time to call the spider pest control experts.

Things You Can Do

When presented with a spider infestation, homeowners and/or occupiers have a few options at hand. If you are able, there are some things you can do to get rid of spiders by yourself. These include:

  • Seal gaps around doors, windows and ground spaces that spiders use to gain entry
  • Regularly clean and vacuum your house, making sure to remove spider webs and spider sacks
  • Prevent build-up of cardboard, papers and other clutter that can provide a hiding place
  • Relocate potential sources of spider shelter from near your home, such as firewood, garbage bags and compost heaps

These measures all make for a great start. However, if your spider infestation is out of your control, or if you’re too afraid to get close to the many-legged creatures, it might be time to call in some spider control professionals.

More Information about Spiders

Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other orders of organisms.[2] Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica, and have become established in nearly every habitat with the exceptions of air and sea colonization. As of November 2015, at least 45,700 spider species,[3] and 114 families have been recorded by taxonomists.[1] However, there has been dissension within the scientific community as to how all these families should be classified, as evidenced by the over 20 different classifications that have been proposed since 1900.[4]

Anatomically, spiders differ from other arthropods in that the usual body segments are fused into two tagmata, the cephalothorax and abdomen, and joined by a small, cylindrical pedicel. Unlike insects, spiders do not have antennae. In all except the most primitive group, the Mesothelae, spiders have the most centralized nervous systems of all arthropods, as all their ganglia are fused into one mass in the cephalothorax. Unlike most arthropods, spiders have no extensor muscles in their limbs and instead extend them by hydraulic pressure.

Male spiders identify themselves by a variety of complex courtship rituals to avoid being eaten by the females. Males of most species survive a few matings, limited mainly by their short life spans. Females weave silk egg-cases, each of which may contain hundreds of eggs. Females of many species care for their young, for example by carrying them around or by sharing food with them. A minority of species are social, building communal webs that may house anywhere from a few to 50,000 individuals. Social behaviour ranges from precarious toleration, as in the widow spiders, to co-operative hunting and food-sharing. Although most spiders live for at most two years, tarantulas and other mygalomorph spiders can live up to 25 years in captivity.
