Pest Control for Spiders in Your Space
Spiders in your home are no match for Pest Pros. We will make recommendations for treatments that can make the environment of your home less hospitable for spiders and their food sources.
Spiders are very efficient hunters. Whether they are orb weavers or hunting spiders, they help reduce the insect population around your house or place of business. Our program consists of treating your first-floor eaves with a material that helps prevent webbing from sticking to your home. We also place sticky traps inside exterior doorways, preventing them from getting established inside. Lastly, we will make recommendations on eliminating harborage points specific to your home or business.
These spiders are easily recognized by their tiny bodies, measuring at only ¼ of an inch, and their dominant feature, legs that can stretch up to 1 ½ inches long. If your house has Cellar Spiders, you’ve most likely seen them in your bathroom, basement or kitchen, as they tend to build their nests in humid spaces. While you may find them creepy and want them out of your house, they are completely harmless and cannot pierce human skin with their tiny fangs.

Giant House Spiders are hairy and brown, with legs that can grow up to 5 inches long. They are one of the largest spiders in the United States and also one of the fastest, although they’re not as good at climbing as most other spiders. Giant House Spiders can be found all around the Puget Sound — you’ve probably encountered one before in your basement or garage. While they are venomous and can bite you, their venom does not cause any serious reactions in humans. Call Pest Pros today to learn more about how to keep these guys out of your home!
Jumping Spiders aren’t shy about crawling around houses in the open. You can find them on your floor, walls, and windows. These spiders are typically on the smaller side, on average being about ½ an inch long. They are covered in thick hairs and can be black, brown or gray, with different colored markings such as red, blue, white, or yellow. Aptly named, Jumping Spiders do jump, and they can jump up to 40 times their body length. They will typically only bite if they feel threatened, and while they are venomous, there are no serious side effects associated with being bitten.

Orb Weaver Spiders, as hinted at in their name, weave webs to catch their prey. These webs are usually located in bushes, gardens, and on houses, and the spiders stay close by. There are actually many sub-types of spiders under the Orb Weaver umbrella, and their bodies range in color from black to brown, gray or orange. Orb Weavers do distribute venom when they bite, however it’s typically harmless. At worst, their venom could cause an itchy red bump to form on your skin accompanied by minor swelling, similar to a bee sting. Call Pest Pros today to learn more about how to rid your home of Orb Weavers!
Wolf Spiders, one of the more dangerous spiders in the Pacific Northwest, closely resemble the giant house spider in that they’re hairy and brown, although they tend to be a bit smaller in size. Instead of spinning webs to catch prey, the Wolf Spider chases them down on the ground. You’re most likely to see Wolf Spiders in your home when the weather gets cooler in autumn. If you suspect that you have an infestation of Wolf Spiders in your home, please call Pest Pros immediately. While their bites are not deadly or even painful initially, they do become serious, will trigger side effects that last for days, and can leave a permanent scar.

It is rare that Yellow Sac Spiders, which are pale yellow in color, will make their way into your house as they’re naturally found in wooded areas with little to no people present. They prefer to build their nests under bark or in curled leaves, however if your home’s conditions are ideal for them to breed and feed, you might find them under furniture or in small, tight spaces. While a Yellow Sac Spider bite is not deadly, it is painful and comes with discomforting side effects. Call Pest Pros today for more information on the best approach to rid your home of spiders!
