Spider Control

Spider Control for Winchester and Front Royal, Virginia

Best Exterminating can help you control the spider population both inside and outside of your home.  Most spiders are not harmful to humans and are beneficial in controlling other insects through consumption.  However there are both chemical and non-chemical means of getting rid of spiders in your home.

Chemical Control of Spiders

A residual pesticide sprayed into under siding and into cracks and crevices where spiders harbor can have some temporary effect in keeping spiders from spin their webs on your home. Use only pesticides labeled for spiders, the spider to be controlled, and the area where application is intended. Reapply as specified on the label.

  • Pyrethrin or pyrethroid space sprays can also have some effect. These will only kill spiders that are directly contacted and will have little residual effect, so application should be made to contact as many spiders and webs as possible. The space spray will also need to be repeated when spider eggs hatch, generally about 4 weeks.
  • A light application of an aerosol or liquid insecticide that is labeled for spiders can be applied into cracks and gaps where spiders can provide some control .

Pesticide dusts can provide control in secluded areas, such as voids where spiders harbor. Dust that contacts webs will stick and be consumed by spiders as they digest the web’s silk to reproduce more.
