Generally, spiders are beneficial for the ecosystem and keep other insects under control. However, they are not welcome inside homes or commercial buildings. Most spiders live outdoors and won’t survive for long inside the house. However, there are a few types of spiders that are comfortable inside and others that will take over the exterior areas of your house.
The spiders that are most often found in our area include:
- House spiders
- Black widows
- Hobo spiders
- Orb spiders
The only poisonous spider on that list is the black widow. Of course, you should always seek professional assistance with poisonous spiders to avoid injury and ensure that the problem is solved. Even if the spiders inside your house aren’t poisonous, letting a professional handle spider control produces better results.
Effectively solving a problem with spiders in Tigard begins with understanding what is attracting them to your property and how they are getting inside. Like other pests, spiders are looking for food, water, and shelter. They usually get inside the house through small cracks and holes in the foundation, around windows and doors, and the places where pipes and utility lines come into the house.
The spider control process starts with an inspection of your home, so the technician can evaluate the problem and locate the places spiders are getting inside. There are products effective for eliminating spiders that are also friendly to the environment, your kids and your pets. In addition to spraying, you will need to address the conditions that are favorable to spiders.
