Our Geelong insect pest control includes spidersPosted on October 10, 2014
Warmer weather has finally arrived and with it has come one of nature’s most fascinating but annoying creatures and one of the most common reasons for calls to Geelong insect pest control services – the spider.
Although spiders are arachnids and not insects, most people with houses under siege from nature’s spinners and weavers couldn’t care less about the distinction. They just want them gone and this is when people turn to Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control, the insect pest control Geelong and district can rely upon. The word exterminator has a harsh ring to it, but exterminators are what we are, particularly when it comes to spiders and other insect pest control.
Spiders tend to breed more during the warmer months and their number-one food source – insects – is much more prevalent during spring and summer. Combine the protection of the warm and dry nooks and crannies inside your home with the bugs attracted to your internal lights and you’ve got a five-star spider restaurant.
Most common spiders are harmless to humans but constantly clearing their webs from walls, ceilings, windows and doorways wears thin after a while and you need to call in the professionals.
At Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control, we divide spiders into two varieties: crawling or hunting and webbing. It’s the webbing ones that make most people dive for the pest spray and while that spray will most likely kill the spider you take aim at, it won’t remove the overall problem.
Getting rid of webbing spiders requires a focused and structured approach, including the application of specific agents to kill the spiders and prevent their return. At Geelong Bellarine Surfcoast Pest Control, we get into those nooks and crannies that spiders like to call home and we make sure they and other insect pests pack their bags and leave – or suffer the consequences! Next time you sit back and relax in your favourite chair you won’t have to worry about being confronted by the sight of webs dangling from the ceiling.
Spiders are just one of the pests we control so make sure you get in touch with Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control and we’ll help you get rid of your unwanted house guests, although we can’t do much about family members who overstay their welcome!
