Spiders are among the most hated pests
in the world. They can sometimes be a nuisance, dangerous, and quite frankly
they could be downright freaky. In this video, I’m going to show you how to
eliminate spiders using the Solutions Four-Step Process.
Coming up. I’m Keith McCoy with Solutions Pest and Lawn. You know as the
temperatures increase, we need to be thinking more about pest control. And as
the bugs come out, so do the spiders. Spiders are an important part of our ecosystem and
can help us with our own pest control, but a lot of the time we don’t want
them around, especially brown recluse and black widows, which often times deliver
fatal bites. So we’ll start with our first two steps identification and
inspection. You know there’s more than 35,000 spider species worldwide, that’s a
scary thought. Luckily there’s only a fraction of those that you may see
around your home or yard. Some of the most common species that you may
encounter are wolf spiders, orb-weaver, jumping spiders, brown recluse and black
widows. The good news is is that the brown recluse and the black widow are
the only life-threatening venomous spiders found in the United States but
that doesn’t mean that other types of spiders won’t leave a nasty bite. A lot
of the time identification and inspection go hand-in-hand because it
can be difficult to identify the species of spiders,
so when identifying spiders note size, color, behavioral patterns. And one of the
best ways is to count the number of eyes and their set pattern but hey let’s face
it who really wants to go eye-to-eye with a spider right spiders are shy and
stay in hidden areas so finding spiders around your home can
be difficult check the property for webs spiders have tendencies to build webs in
undisturbed areas such as around ceilings fixtures and windows also check
the garage outdoor coverings move things around
look for spiders these are areas that spiders love to hang out due to frequent
bug activity identification and inspection are really
important because without knowing where to apply and what to treat for spider
control can be difficult the good news is is that the products that I’m about
to show you will eliminate any spider problem that you may encounter the third
step to the process is control what you want to do first is you want to
declutter the house sometimes spiders can be found in cluttered areas such as
garages attics and basements do your best to throw out or reorganize as much
as possible so that the spiders will be more out in the open
this will help eliminate any harborage areas next we’ll use a product called
reclaim IT with a pump sprayer reclaim i.t is an insecticide concentrate that
has a powerful knockdown and a great residual spray outside around windows
doors around porches under patio coverings along eaves inside spray along
baseboards closets and in garages and storage spaces after that you can
monitor spider activity by using a catch master 72 MB glue board these are multi
insect glue traps that are great to use for capturing stray spiders that may be
hard to find lay these out in areas where you’ve seen spider activity maybe
the garage maybe a closet storage area the spiders will walk across the board
and get stuck then you can dispose of the board eliminate webs by using web
out spray web out spray is an organic formula that is designed to break down
webs and also make cleaning a lot easier and to prevent new webs from forming
spray any spider webs that you might see usually inside or under patio coverings
clean up the web by using either a broom or a weber head duster this will
discourage spiders from rebuilding webs in those areas the final step to the
process is prevention keep the spiders away by spraying the
perimeter of your home with reclaim i.t spray 3 feet up the structure and three
feet out this will create an insecticidal barrier that will keep
spiders away seal off any openings around the exterior of the house you
know using a copper mesh and weep holes around the perimeter is a great idea
also you can seal off any cracks and crevices by using a caulk be diligent
about knocking down webs that you might see and continue a good general pest
control program remember if you get rid of bugs you get rid of the spiders food
source and that is our four-step process if you follow that process solutions
guarantees you 100% that you will eliminate your spider problem not only
will you eliminate your spider problem but you will also eliminate a lot of
other bugs and insects that you see around your property leave us a comment
