I have been doing a lot of Spider jobs lately and I thought it would be a good topic to discuss. Whether I am at the right place at the right time or is the time of year, there has been plenty of activity since the beginning of the year.
People should be aware that spiders are prevalent everywhere; however, there is a few thing to consider. Spiders are predators that will eat whatever insects are available in your landscape, which means that the more insects are around, the higher the food source and therefore more potential for spiders invading inside the house.
By minimizing the food source through a Pest Control maintenance program we also minimize the chance of spider related occurrence in your home, a normal consideration specially for young families with kids.
Another thing to consider is the nature of the landscape setting and how well maintained it is. Typically a landscape with abundant trees and shrubs will host more insect variety including spiders. While having trees and shrubs in the landscape ads value and aesthetics, maintenance is also important, and when people wander why they have so many spiders, that could be one of the reasons why but they may not be aware of it. That's where the value of an inspection comes in. A good inspection will let people know what they can do culturally and mechanically to help with a Pest Control Program that will bring the best results when is combined with the use of chemicals as needed.
