House Spiders

Did you ever wonder why spiders don’t get caught in their own webs? Because only half of the webs are sticky (horizontal or vertical).
Are there any spiders located in Michigan that can be harmful to humans? Rarely; there are only two spiders in the United States that are a threat to humans. They are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow, and they are mainly located in the Southwestern part of the United States.
Did you know that spiders not only have eight legs, but also usually have eight eyes.

Spiders are generally easily recognized by most people. They possess eight legs, which separates them from insects that have six legs. All spiders are predators, feeding mainly on insects. If your home/building is located by a body of water and/or in a wooded area, you will have a higher population of insects; therefore a higher population of spiders. Most spiders create an unsightly situation of webs and spider droppings, but usually cause no real harm to humans.

Control/Service

Since spiders have long legs, multiply rapidly and spend most of their time on their webs, it is very difficult to achieve control. Therefore we generally recommend a monthly service (April through September). The initial service can be performed inside and outside or just the exterior, based on your particular needs. We use a water base material to treat under eaves, decks, the siding, in bushes, and around base of home and out buildings. Included in this service is wiping down unsightly webs. This service will also help control most all crawling insects and wasps. This service is mainly for homes/ buildings that have severe spider problems.

Homes that do not have a severe spider infestation can be controlled quite effectively with a quarterly service. This service will also help control most all crawling insects and wasps. Any problems with insects that are covered under the service agreement will be treated at no additional charge between regular scheduled services; call us for full guarantee details.
