Most Pest Control Technicians would immediately advise that Spiders are in fact not a pest. Spiders are actually predators and represent an immediate benefit to our environment. Spiders eat pests, provide a natural home defence and aside from their lack of friendly appearance are actually a valuable ally in the combat of pest intruders in your home or business.
However, most people would rather not share their space with such a nasty looking guest. Spiders are easy to control with a liquid application around the exterior of the home, and a targeted application at the interior. However, to attain the most effective results a long lasting residual is required and a professional should be used to apply this. Interior applications should be limited to target areas to ensure pesticides are safely employed.
