It’s easy to understand why so many people have a fear of spiders—they look downright frightening! The truth is that most spiders are totally harmless, and actually are more beneficial for the environment than you may be willing to accept. That said, no one wants them taking over their property, especially when more dangerous spiders are involved. At Springer Professional Home Services, we have the expertise to protect you and your family from spiders year-round.

When do you need professional spider control?
Everyone sees a spider or two inside their property from time to time. That said, seeing multiple a day or countless webs may indicate a bigger problem. Springer’s technicians have a complex process proven to help control spider populations, including some of the following steps:
- Identifying the type of spider or spiders in your property.
- Conducting thorough inspections that includes the yard, attached and detached structures, driveway, and home.
- Treating spider nests outside to protect your home from spiders even during the warmer months.
- Removing webs from the outside and inside of your home.
- Sealing entry points such as cracks and crevices.
- Discreetly applying products or bait in common spider areas.
- Creating a detailed report describing our process and providing you with prevention tips.
Indoor vs. outdoor spiders
House spiders are drastically different than spiders found outdoors, and it’s important to understand the difference between the two. For the most part, outdoor spiders accidentally enter buildings through cracks and other openings; occasionally, they may be carried in on items like plants, furniture, boxes, and firewood. House spiders, on the other hand, have most likely been inside of your home for years.
Preventing spiders in your property
Most spiders prefer hiding in dark and undisturbed areas, and will only bite when provoked, squished, or pinched. Regular vacuuming and sweeping of windows, corners, storage areas, and basements can help control a house spider population. When cleaning out boxes or rifling through materials in dark areas, be wary of spiders.

How Springer gets rid of spiders
Although most spiders are beneficial to our environment by controlling other insect populations, they aren’t exactly welcomed visitors inside homes. It can also be hard to tell when you’re dealing with a potentially harmful species. Both brown recluse spiders and black widows are in Iowa, which is why it’s always best to call an expert such as Springer for professional spider control.
