Katy Spider Control

Local Pest Control Experts 

Spiders are common household pests. While they are not harmful to humans, they can be a nuisance. Spiders often find their way into our homes looking for food, water, and shelter. They also can enter our homes accidentally by riding in boxes, moving trucks, etc. Spiders are typically active at night, but they may wander around during the day if they are looking for a food source. If you have spiders in your home, it is important to seek professional help.

Preventive Pest Control has been providing quality pest control services in Katy for many years. We are dedicated to providing excellent customer service and treating each customer's pest problem as if it were our own.

What Attracts Spiders to Homes?

Several factors can attract spiders to homes. Understanding these factors can help in implementing preventive measures. 

Here are some common reasons why spiders might be drawn to homes:

  • Food Source: Spiders are predators that feed on insects. If your home has a high population of other insects like flies, mosquitoes, or ants, spiders may be attracted to the abundance of food.
  • Shelter: Spiders seek shelter in dark, secluded spaces. Cluttered and undisturbed areas provide ideal hiding spots for spiders to build their webs and lay eggs.
  • Warmth: Spiders are cold-blooded creatures, and they are attracted to warm indoor environments. As temperatures drop outside, spiders may seek refuge inside homes to stay warm.
  • Moisture: Certain species of spiders are attracted to moisture. Leaky pipes, damp basements, or areas with high humidity can create a favorable environment for spiders.
  • Outdoor Vegetation: If your home is surrounded by dense vegetation or has tall grass close to it, spiders may find their way indoors while hunting for prey or seeking shelter.
  • Light: Some spiders are attracted to light. In the evening, indoor lights may attract flying insects, which in turn attract spiders looking for a meal.
  • Entry Points: Cracks, gaps, and openings in doors, windows, and foundations provide easy entry for spiders. They can crawl through small spaces, seeking refuge indoors.
  • Lack of Predators: Natural predators of spiders, such as certain insects, birds, or other spiders, may be scarce around your home. This absence of predators can contribute to an increased spider population.

To deter spiders from entering your home, it's essential to address these factors. Regular cleaning, sealing entry points, reducing indoor humidity, and implementing pest control measures for other insects can help minimize the conditions that attract spiders.

When is it Necessary to Hire Professional Pest Control for Spiders?

Hiring professional pest control for spiders may be necessary under certain circumstances. 

Here are situations in which seeking professional assistance is advisable:

  • Venomous Spiders: If you have identified venomous spiders like black widows or brown recluses in or around your home, it's crucial to contact professionals. These spiders can pose health risks, and their bites may require medical attention.
  • Severe Infestations: If you are dealing with a large or persistent spider infestation that DIY methods have failed to control, it's time to consider professional pest control. A significant infestation may indicate an underlying issue that requires expert assessment and treatment.
  • Identification of Spider Species: Professional pest control experts can accurately identify spider species and tailor their approach based on the specific behaviors and characteristics of the spiders present. This targeted approach is more effective in managing the infestation.
  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM): Pest control professionals often use Integrated Pest Management strategies, which involve a combination of methods to address the root causes of infestations. This may include habitat modification, exclusion, and the targeted use of pesticides.
  • Health Concerns: If you or your family members have health concerns, allergies, or sensitivities that make dealing with spiders or pesticides risky, it's advisable to hire professionals who can safely and effectively handle the situation.
  • Recurring Infestations: If spiders keep coming back despite your efforts to control them, it may indicate an underlying issue that needs professional attention. Pest control experts can assess the situation, identify contributing factors, and implement long-term solutions.
  • Property Damage: If spiders are causing damage to your property, such as by building extensive webs or creating unsightly nests, professional pest control can help address the issue and prevent further damage.

When hiring professional pest control for spiders, it's essential to choose a reputable and licensed pest control service. They can conduct a thorough inspection, provide targeted treatments, and offer recommendations for preventing future infestations. Additionally, professionals can ensure the safe and responsible use of pesticides, minimizing potential risks to humans, pets, and the environment.

    "Have used this company for more than 10 years. Always very responsive and accommodating to scheduling service based on availability. Company offers follow up spot treatment if issues occur between services at no charge."

    Jay T.

    "We have been faithful customer's for many years in 2 different homes in The Woodlands.  The guys were always professional and left service cards at the door.  When we moved to the last home in 2014, we had a major cutter ant issue!!  They appeared out of nowhere and were destroying everything in sight!  I called the office in a panic and the gal got someone out the very next day.  He not only took care of all the beds, he followed the ant trail all the way to the back of the preserve and knocked those suckers out! We now live in Denver, Colorado. I was so pleased to find a locally owned Preventative Pest control - they are awesome too. When we move back to TW, I'll just pick right back up with you guys!"

When I had my initial service done, I felt, at the time, that it was not to my expectations. Immediately I called the customer service folks. The very next day they sent out a manager to come fix any concerns I had. I recommend this company because their prices are low and their service is excellent."
