There’s one universal rule regarding spider control: Don’t hope for perfection. Chemical sprays are often not very successful against spiders, nor can the spiders easily pick up poisonous chemicals. So simply spraying with a pesticide isn’t always a good defense against crawling pests. It would be more productive to focus your efforts on prevention. How then can you avoid getting stung or getting bit? Here are some facts to help.
A common and popular method for spider extermination is a fogger or spray. This tactic is great if you’re only dealing with a mild spider infestation. However, if you want to eradicate the species from your home completely, this is usually not enough. If you want your home spider treatment to be effective, a comprehensive and persistent approach is required.
One of the best methods for spider control is a brown recluse spider elimination procedure. Usually, this procedure involves using a pesticide or trap around the perimeter of your house, inside the house. However, most exterminators who specialize in brown recluse cases prefer to apply a product that will not harm or kill the insects while also working to prevent them from coming back. The product that is most commonly used for spider prevention is Leucatin. Other products that may be as effective are Bifen, Proactiv, and Dalo.
When dealing with an infestation, exterminators generally recommend that their clients do one of two things: either use bait or make spider control a recurring monthly routine. Although bait spiders can pose a danger to young children and pets, they’re better at avoiding harm than adult insects. When a persistent infestation is present, exterminators advise that they leave the area until all the adult spiders have been killed. Baiting is not advised for all situations, but it is the best spider control method available in many cases.
When it comes to baiting, the exterminator places a bait mixture directly around the perimeter of your home. This may include cracks, holes, crawl spaces, and outside the perimeter wall of your home. Some baits contain pesticides, while others may include repellents or other chemicals designed to repel spiders from the area. When spiders in an infestation seek out the bait, they may eat some of the bait before leaving the area, thus reducing the overall population.
Another popular spider control practice is to place red spider traps around your property. These traps should be placed inside cracks, gaps, and between the walls and floorboards. The exterminator will need to search for the spiders first, which can often be tricky to locate. Red traps are often placed in areas where pests may feed on human or pet food. If humans or pets are eating these foods, then the animals are being eaten, creating an even more serious situation.
