How the service is carried out?
Our technicians carry out a thorough spray treatment to all external ground and garden areas around the home where ground dwelling spiders may be living. Ground dwelling spiders live in burrows beneath the soil, in gardens and under logs and rocks.
The best way to prevent ground spiders and other hunting spiders starts with eliminating their food. Since these spiders eat insects that crawl, inspect the outside for insect entryways. Ground-level entrances should be closed. Check exterior doors to be sure they close properly. Replace any missing weather-stripping. Check basement windows and crawlspace vents for proper screens. Squares of plastic screen can prevent insects from using weep holes as entrances to the home.
