Spider Removal in Portland


Spiders are a common household pest that many people find creepy and unsettling. While most spiders are harmless, there are a few species that can be dangerous, and no one wants to share their home with these eight-legged creatures. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the health risks associated with spiders, as well as some effective pest control tactics to remove them from your home.

Health Risks of Spiders:

  1. Spider Bites: While most spider bites are harmless, there are some species of spiders that can cause serious health problems with their bites. Black widow and brown recluse spiders are the two most dangerous species in the United States. Both of these spiders can cause serious symptoms including pain, swelling, nausea, and in some cases, death.
  2. Allergic Reactions: Some people may have an allergic reaction to spider venom, which can cause severe symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, and even anaphylactic shock.
  3. Mental Health: For some people, the presence of spiders in their home can cause significant anxiety and fear, leading to mental health issues such as phobias or panic attacks. Proper pest control in these types of situations is vital. 

Pest Control tactics to Remove Spiders from Your Home:

  1. Spray Treatments: One effective way to control spiders is through the use of spray treatments. The pest control industry has been using sprays to treat spiders for years and years with good success. There are a variety of spider-specific sprays available on the market that can be used both indoors and outdoors. These pest control sprays typically contain a combination of insecticides that are toxic to spiders and other insects.
  2. Sticky Traps: Another way to remove spiders from your home is by using sticky traps. These traps are typically made of cardboard or plastic, and they have a sticky surface that spiders can’t escape from. They can be placed along walls, in corners, or in other areas where spiders are likely to travel. Sticky traps are an excellent pest control tool for removing spiders and other crawling insects from your home.
  3. Seal Gaps and Cracks: All good pest control starts with attempting to find the source. Spiders often enter homes through small gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows. By sealing up these entry points, you can prevent spiders from entering your home in the first place.
  4. Natural Repellents: There are a variety of natural remedies that may help to repel spiders. Peppermint oil, vinegar, and citrus oils are all known to be effective pest control tools for repelling spiders. These substances can be sprayed around your home, or applied to cotton balls and placed in areas where spiders are likely to travel.

While spiders may be a common household pest, there are many effective ways to control and remove them from your home by following a few simple pest control tricks. By understanding the health risks associated with spiders, and implementing some of the pest control methods we’ve discussed, you can keep your home spider-free and protect the health and wellbeing of your family.

My shop has had an infestation of rats for over 9 years! I tried traps and occasionally caught a rat but always they came back. On their first visit we discovered two entry points for the rats and plugged them up. After a few rats caught, my shop has returned to normalcy. Thank you Pest Patrol.
