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 provide expert spider removal services to keep you safe year-round.

The importance of spider removal
House spiders are drastically different than spiders found outdoors, and it’s important to understand the difference between the two. House spiders are mostly harmless and will not bite. However, some more dangerous types of spiders live outdoors and may make their way inside—the black widow and brown recluse spider included. If either of these is seen, it’s important to call the spider exterminators at Springer.
Spider pest control & prevention
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. The spider exterminators at Springer can help seal your home from 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. The spider removal team at Springer knows how distressing these arachnids can be, which is why we are here to help implement effective spider pest control for your property!
