North Shore Spider Elimination Services


We’ve heard it said so many times that spiders are beneficial.  They eat insects and other spiders and in so doing, they help rid our home of other unwanted pests.  But they can also be scary, unsightly and make us feel worried about our personal safety.  While most spiders are not harmful to humans, some species are.  If you suspect the spiders in your home are poisonous, for the safety of yourself and your family, you should have them removed right away.

  • Spiders have eight legs which distinguishes them from insects, which only have six legs.  The three spider species to watch out for are the brown recluse, hobo spider and the black widow.
  • Spiders build webs that can cause your home to look disheveled and untidy.
  • Most humans are afraid of spiders, whether or not they are dangerous.

What Causes Spider Infestation?

Spiders usually live outside in  bushes, dirt, trees, plants and brush.  They also live inside sheds, garages, and lawn furniture.  Heavy rain can force spiders to seek refuge inside your home.  Additionally, spiders eat other bugs, so if you have problems with any other bugs inside your home, spiders will likely be attracted inside to that food source.  They will come through openings around your doors and windows, through torn screens and cracks and crevices in your foundation, siding or roof.

Bozarjian Pest Control Effectively Removes Spiders

Richie “The Bug Man” Bozarjian, proprietor of Bozarjian Pest Control, will inspect your home to confirm your pest problem is spiders, then go over specific treatment options.  The first step in spider removal is thoroughly cleaning and vacuuming the entire home, paying special attention to air vents, basements, ceilings and areas behind and under furniture.  Since spiders like to hide in dark hiding spots, you should remove any clutter or items you may be unnecessarily storing in your basement, attic or garage.

Treatment options include:

  • Residual Dusting and Spraying:  Bozarjian Pest Control uses residual insecticide on all areas where the spiders have been found.  This includes dark corners, crawl spaces, basements and attics.  We will also make applications around the perimeter of your home to help discourage new spiders from entering in the future.
  • Glue Traps: These are very useful to trap spiders behind furniture, under beds, in closets and hard to reach places.
  • Home Vacuuming Regimen:  Once the treatment has been fully completed, the homeowner needs to maintain a regular daily vacuuming schedule to ensure all spiders are removed from the home and to reduce the number of cobwebs being formed.
