Arachnophobia is a fear of spiders that many people suffer from. Certain spider species are beneficial in the control of obnoxious insects through their consumption. Some spider species may not be as beneficial. Tennessee spider exterminators deal with many species.

The black widow’s body will have a reddish or orange hourglass-shaped marking. This is how you can identify it. It is not always fatal but can cause serious injuries to children.

The wolf spider, although they may look scary, is actually quite harmless. They do not live in webs and are solitary scavengers. They are mistakenly believed to have the long fur and body of small tarantulas. They are more likely to feed on insects and will often enter homes or businesses looking for water and food.

There are many common house spiders that we treat. They can be found at the base and corners of windows, foundations, and inside houses.

Cause of Spiders

Spider infestations can occur for many reasons. Spiders are often drawn to food sources. Spiders will eat insects that are attracted to light, moisture or food scraps. Spiders love to hide in rocks and woodpiles as well as ornamental plants. The infestation of home spiders can be caused when arachnids ride on your houseplant.

Spider Treatment

We use multiple methods to eliminate unwanted spiders from your home. To eliminate spider infestations, we will remove visible webs from patio furniture and eaves. We will treat the corners, foundation, near stucco homes’ lip and base plants.

Spider Prevention

First, remove spider webs that are very close to your building. You should also make sure you check your building for new spider webs at least once per week.

If you seal all cracks, spiders won’t enter your home. You can also take steps to prevent other pests from eating your home. Reduce outdoor lighting at night, and instead use yellow-colored bulbs. These are less attractive than white light.

Avoid allowing boxes, clutter, floor tiles, roof tiles and woodpiles to accumulate. These shelters are highly desirable to spiders.

Black Widow Control

Gemini Pest Control is aware that customers are concerned about safety. Our premium service offers several black widow treatment options that are effective in controlling pests.

Black widow spiders are attracted to damp, dark places. They can be found around homes and buildings. Their webs are often irregular and ragged, so they love to make them indoors in garages or basements. They prefer to be outside, but they will use sheds, garages and unoccupied corners.

Black widows prefer to nest low to ground so they are often found around foundations of buildings or homes, at the base of plants and around perimeter blocks.

Black Widow Treatment

A black widow spider can lay up to four to nine eggs each summer. A single sac can house up to 400 spiderlings. Black widow venom can poison healthy adults.
