How do I get rid of spiders?

OPC Four Seasons Program

First, it is important to know that they are not very receptive to chemical agents or pesticides. They love to build their webs off the ground, so they rarely come in contact with any sort of pesticide that would be sprayed on the floor. Additionally, they do not have a circulatory system to distribute chemical agents to vital organs for a rapid death. To kill a spider, you must make direct contact with it via direct spray.

To kill spiders, one must eliminate its food source. Because spiders are predators, that means eliminating all other bugs. If you see a spider, contact your local pest control company to schedule an inspection.
