You’re in your home going about your day. Maybe you’re making a pot of coffee or packing up a work bag to get out the door when suddenly you see something scuttle across the floor. A spider! Big or small, eight-legged insects aren’t welcome guests in most households.
The good news is, most spiders are harmless. In fact, having a few spiders about can even be beneficial because they eat other, more irritating insects. But it’s completely understandable that you wouldn’t want to share your space with them—especially if you’re seeing more than one on a regular basis. If you think your spider problem is getting out of hand, it may be time to call in the professionals. Keep reading to find out more.
When to Call a Professional for Spider Extermination
It’s normal to see one or two spiders every once in a while, and that kind of problem is easily addressed. However, sometimes the problem is bigger than one person can handle. Here are some signs that it’s time to call a professional spider exterminator.
- When you notice a large amount of spider webs. Spiders are reclusive and solitary. They tend to hang out in dark spaces, but they leave evidence of their presence behind in the form of spiderwebs. If you’ve noticed spiderwebs in every corner of your home, then it’s possible you’re dealing with a professional-level spider problem.
- When you see egg sacs. Spider egg sacs are small, white and spherical and they contain hundreds of spider eggs in each. Vacuuming up spider eggs is recommended to prevent them from hatching in your home. If you’ve noticed an uptick in the amount of spider egg sacs you’re cleaning up, it may be time to call an exterminator.
- When there’s an increase in other insects. If you’re also dealing with ants, flies, or lice, then you can bet there are spiders nearby. These insects are a spider’s main food source and if they’re eating well, they won’t be likely to leave. Calling an exterminator will take care of several pest problems at once.
- When you find venomous spiders. While most spiders are harmless, there are a few that are quite dangerous. Venomous spiders like the brown recluse and black widow are rarely fatal, but can cause significant complications requiring emergency medical care. If you find a venomous spider in or near your home call a professional exterminator immediately. You don’t want to risk being bitten by these tiny threats.
