Spider Control Services

Every home across America likely has spiders of varying shapes and sizes crawling through it. Some of these eight-legged creatures are dangerous, while others are harmless and provide value to our ecosystem. But there’s one thing they all have in common – finding a way into your home.
Female house spiders can lay about 400 eggs at once, quickly multiplying these infiltrators. You’ll want to take action to prevent your problem from growing and call Rainbow Pest Control for safe and effective treatment options.


Common House Spiders Found in Houston

We’ve all experienced the hairs on our bodies standing up at seeing a spider scurrying around our home. Most people begin thinking about spider bites or other potential dangers, but the truth is, most common house spiders are harmless. Here are a few common spiders you may find in your Houston home:

  • Garden spider
  • Orb weaver spider
  • American house spider
  • Black widow spider
  • Brown recluse spider

Do not delay treatment if you see a Black Widow or Brown Recluse. Both species are venomous and require professional exterminators for safe and proper removal.

Where Do Spiders Enter Your Home?

Spiders take many different paths to enter your home. Some species are looking for shelter, while others are looking for a mate. If you have many insects inside your home, spiders may search for food within your walls.
Regardless of what they are looking for, spiders will enter through loose screens or cracks around your windows and doors. They may also tag along on any objects you bring in from the outdoors, including plants, clothing, or items stored in your garage.

Protecting Your Home from Spiders

The first step to preventing any problem is being proactive. Before the spider population grows to require professional help, try the following steps.
Most spiders prefer living in a quiet location, making storage areas prime real estate. Keeping basements, attics, and garages clutter-free helps prevent them from assembling their webs and eliminates the need for a trained exterminator.
Store items in plastic containers with lids to keep spiders and other creepy crawlers out. When you take these items out of storage, shake them out to prevent carrying the spider into your main living space.
Other preventive steps are vacuuming regularly, deep cleaning, and keeping building materials or firewood away from your home.
If you suspect you have a spider infestation, contact the professional exterminators at Rainbow Pest Control for your free estimate.
