    Spider infestations are often less obvious than other pest problems. Many spider species prefer to hide out in dark undisturbed places, so a little searching might be required to locate them. The best way to get rid of spiders is to make your home as unappealing to them as possible.

    Spider repellents deter spiders from staying in your home by emitting a scent that spiders dislike, but is safe and pleasant to humans. This can be an important step in ridding your home of spiders for good. An effective strategy would involve removing inviting habitats from around your home, cleaning thoroughly, placing natural repellents, and then making sure the house is well sealed.

    Have your exterminator do an extra spraying for spiders under and all around the deck and patio. It may be part of your contract already, or you may have to pay extra. You can sprinkle borax around window and floor-wall seams if you have to do the job yourself. And dust often with the duster covered with clothes dryer sheets to pick up the carcasses. Best wishes ☺️

    Sometimes when you spray for bugs it may take more than once to get rid of them. Call for another spraying...or buy a good sprayer and buy some "Demon" to use on the spiders. Ours comes in a packet that you drop down into the sprayer.

    Be sure and spray around windows and doors!
