Do you suffer from arachnophobia? Whether you are terrified of spiders or you just don’t like having them around the house, you’ll want to consider effective pest control techniques to get rid of these bugs. Most spiders are harmless, but there are a few poisonous spiders that can cause harm if someone in the home is bit. In serious situations, a person may even end up in the emergency room taking medications needed to counteract the venom.
Here are a few things that you might do to get rid of spiders in your home:
Go to your local home and garden store to find sticky traps for spiders. These traps have a sticky surface that is laid on the floor. Place these traps along the baseboards or anywhere else that you have seen spiders or webs. When spiders walk across the sticky surface of the trap, they will become stuck.
Sticky traps are disposable, and you can change them as often as needed. These traps don’t often work well if you have pets that might get their fur caught on the sticky surface. Also, although the traps will help with the bigger spiders, they won’t get rid of the nests or baby spiders.
Spraying for Spiders
Another solution that you might consider is to spray the house with pesticides. These chemicals are only effective if they are placed in an area where they will come in contact with the body of the spider. Most spiders have long legs so that they won’t come in contact with the chemicals. But, spraying the chemicals in cracks and crevices where the spiders are moving will increase the likelihood that the body of the bug will touch the chemicals.
Pest control chemicals can be dangerous to your family and pets if these products are used incorrectly. If you want to keep your family safe, you’ll want to have an experienced pest control expert handle the application of the chemicals.
