At Gibson Pest Control, we deal with spider infestations on a regular basis. Because a number of arachnid species are quite venomous, property owners should always seek help from the experts. Most species spin webs in attics, garages, and basements. By spraying special insecticides in affected areas, we can eliminate large spider populations rather efficiently.
Spiders are usually attracted to houses with high levels of humidity. They can enter the home through broken screens, unsecured doors, and defunct vents. Once inside, spiders quickly weave intricate webs, which they use to catch their prey. Venomous spiders, in fact, can be especially harmful to humans and pets. In addition to causing allergic reactions, spider bites can send people to the hospital. As professional exterminators, we can find and eliminate spider populations before the critters cause serious injury to household residents.

Signs of Spiders in Your Home
There are a few signs to look for in your home if you think that you might have a spider infestation. Webs are usually the first sign of an infestation. There will likely be several webs in corners or in dark areas of your home. You could see egg sacs, which will usually lead to even more spiders in your home in a short time if you don’t contact a company that provides spider control. An infestation might be present if you notice several flying insects or insects in general as spiders make a meal of these.
Where to Find Spiders in Your Home
A spider can enter your home in a variety of ways. It can squeeze through a crack in the wall or underneath a doorway. You could even bring spiders into your home after being outside as they could cling to your clothing or shoes. You’ll usually see spiders in dark areas, such as closets, your basement, or underneath cabinets.
Our Spider Control Treatment
Even if a certain spider species is deemed to be harmless, most homeowners will still want the arachnids removed from the house. In the worst infestations, webs will begin to intrude on household objects, especially in storage areas. With specialized tools, we can eliminate the webs without damaging the infrastructure of the house. Sac spiders and house spiders, for example, are both attracted to dark, moist areas. If individuals notice egg sacs or webs near window sills, doors, shelving units, or support beams, an infestation is likely underway.
We will generally use a number of techniques to eliminate spiders. Liquid insecticides and glue traps are both possibilities. Once we have an idea of what we are up against, we’ll develop and implement a viable plan of action.
