Brown Recluse Treatments inside Homes

Treating inside a home for brown recluse spiders will many times be the only way you’ll be able to knock them out once and for all. Once established inside, brown recluse spiders can be difficult to control. They naturally hide and avoid bright light making key locations difficult to identify. Brown recluse spray should be directed toward the floor boards and residuals should be applied where there have been sightings. Many people get worried about spraying inside but the bottom line is you have no choice. Brown recluse spiders present a hazard to anyone or animal and should not be ignored!

Spiders will many times start to nest up under house siding. This location provides a great place for them to hide from the elements, predators and other dangers. Be sure to either dust or spray up under siding which has spider activity if you wish to prevent further activity and inside the home penetration.

Spider droppings can become quite a mess. They will accumulate below nest locations and can be quite large even when produced from relatively small spiders. Cleaning these droppings will enable you to readily identify new infestations as well as help prevent any damage this highly acidic waste can cause. The best product for the job is WEB OUT. It’s federally Exempt because it’s made from all natural, food grade actives. More importantly, this product actually works. In fact, it works great.

Web Out can be used to remove spider droppings. Simply spray a light mist over the droppings and let it sit for 5-10 minutes then wipe away with a moist paper towel or rag.

Web Out will remove webs. Lightly mist unsightly spider webs, let the treatment sit for 5-10 minutes and the webs will easily wipe away. This is especially helpful when used on our WEB REMOVER.

Web Out can also be used as a spider killer. Any spiders sprayed with Web Out will quickly die.

And Web Out is safe to use on the lake, ocean or other water areas where traditional products can’t be applied without fear of contaminating the water. Treatments can last a month or longer depending on where it’s applied.

Removing spider webs will make the overall spider control program that much more effective. Spider webs are fundamental for many species of spiders and if their weave is interrupted, damaged or removed, they will work to restore things to normal as soon as they can. This means they will be active and many times this activity will cause them to get exposed to your treatment. It will also cause them to use a lot of energy which in turn can lead to lowered levels of active ingredient needed for control. The bottom line is removing spider webs both enhances your treatment and will tend to hasten positive results. Use one of our web removers for hard to reach webs and be sure to spray the area with one of the residual products we have listed in our product section.

Most people don’t think of spiders as a “pest”. However, spiders are many times a direct result of insect activity. Spiders like to live close to their food. They tend to amass where there is a ready supply of meals and if you aren’t doing pest control around your house on  a regular basis, chances are high that some kind of insect has either moved in or close to the structure. A surge in spider populations is almost always a direct result of such increases.

Spiders bite. Many spiders have venom which can play havoc with the human body. Throughout the United States there are thousands of people who get bit annually from spiders and many more which go unreported. Though most of these are minor and in consequential, many have long term impact and repercussions. The bottom line is like most insects, there are inherent risks allowing spiders to exist in and around the home. Do pest control to help keep local insect populations minimized and you’ll find predatory insects like spiders won’t be interested in being around much either.

Using some Baygon around windows and door frames can do a good job keeping unwanted spiders from entering. Be sure to give these areas a good treatment during the fall when migrating spiders are looking to escape the cooler temperatures.

Treating a Baby’s room or any room where people spend a lot of time needs to be done with caution. We always suggest to first set out some glue traps to monitor the problem to see just how extensive it really is. Once the level of activity is known to some degree, a treatment plan can be put in place which will both reduce the spiders and not put anyone at risk. Give us a call for specifics on  how to treat your sensitive room to get spider control.

We get this question quite a bit. The answer isn’t always clear which means that many times the best thing to do is cover all bases.

If you’re seeing spiders in the home, go ahead and set up some SPIDER TRAPS in any room where you see activity. You should also do some crack and crevice work with some BAYGON AEROSOL or the odorless and “dry” PT-PHANTOM. If the spiders are merely moving in from the outside this should keep them under control for 1-2 months per treatment. But if they reappear sooner, you probably have them coming from your attic, basement, crawl space or outside home exterior.

If you think they’re coming from the basement, crawl space or attic, consider using some PYGANIC DUST for long lasting protection. Most homes only need to dust once a year to keep these areas well protected.

If you believe the spiders are migrating in from the outside, an exterior program will be needed. This should include foundation spraying with the CYPERMETHRIN or the LAMDA-CYHALOTHRIN. Be sure to spray up the siding special attention to windows, soffits, gutters, porches, decks, basement windows and other routes of entry. In most cases a good exterior treatment every 2-3 months will keep the spiders off the building.

Lastly, if you see spiders out in the yard and suspect you have ground nesting species active in your turf, apply some BIFEN GRANULES every 2-3 months. This product is very active on most pests and treating the yard 2-3 times a year can really help keep all insect invasions minimized.
