Creating a spider-free environment at home is a priority.

You can help prevent spiders from entering or re-entering your home in several ways.


  • Utilize Ehrlich’s PestFree365+ plan! This is a year-round pest control plan for your home.

Ehrlich’s spider control service

Ehrlich's technicians possess the expertise to identify the spider species within your residence and provide professional spider control solutions. Professional spider control is important for people with a real fear of spiders but also to control a large or repeat infestation. Our skilled team excels in the removal of spiders and their webs from various areas in and around your home.

Step 1: Inspection

Our spider removal service begins with a comprehensive exterior and interior inspection, enabling us to pinpoint spiders and their potential hiding spots. While examining the exterior, our technicians carefully inspect areas prone to spider activity, including shrubs, awnings, around windows and doors, and exterior light fixtures.

Moving indoors, we conduct a thorough examination to locate spiders within the house. High-priority areas such as bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, garages, and more are given special attention. Should we discover any spiders, spider webs, or egg sacs, we promptly remove them.

Step 2: Treatment methods

As a proactive measure, our technicians can strategically place passive monitors and/or glue traps in undisturbed indoor areas where spiders may be present. Additionally, we treat cracks and crevices with repellent residual dust or residual liquid pesticide. To further fortify your defense against spiders, we offer the option to seal minor gaps with silicone sealant. Our spider removal services are tailor-made for your home, ensuring effective targeting of spiders indoors and preventing their return.

Step 3: Prevention

Once the spiders are treated, your technician can give you suggestions to prevent spider infestations in the future. We can also offer advice on how to spot the early signs of an infestation to enable quick and effective targeted treatment for your home or business.

Types of spiders

Most spiders cannot harm humans, and it is very uncommon for people to be bitten by them. However, you should still be aware of the common types of spiders you can find around and inside your home. 

The most commonly found spiders both inside and outside of homes are typically the Common House Spider, Cellar Spider, Garden Orb-Weaving Spider, and occasionally the Wolf Spider. These spiders are adapted to living in human environments and are often found in and around houses. It's important to note that the prevalence of specific spiders can vary based on geographic location and local environmental conditions. 


If you see these spiders, or others, within your home, it might be time to consult a professional for spider removal services. Contact Ehrlich today to schedule your appointment!

Are spiders dangerous?

Spiders, in general, are not inherently dangerous to humans. While spiders possess venom, the majority are not harmful to humans. Most spiders prefer to avoid human contact and are more interested in catching and eating insects. Only a small fraction of spiders worldwide have venom potent enough to cause human health concerns. Even among medically important species, bites are rare, and fatalities are incredibly uncommon. 


Frequently asked pest control questions

How long do spiders live?

The lifespan of a spider is often divided into different stages, including egg, spiderling, juvenile, and adult, with each stage having its own duration. Spider lifecycles begin when spiders lay their eggs, wrapping them in specialized protective cases made of silk. Within these egg sacs, spiders will develop until they are ready to hatch, which could take a week to several months. A single egg sac may contain 50-100 eggs or more. 

Once the eggs hatch, the spiderlings remain inside the silken sac and undergo their first molt. When mature spiderlings are ready to emerge from their egg sac, they use their chelicerae (mouthparts) to tear the sac open. Once they emerge, spiderlings will initially stay close to one another. Eventually, the spiderlings will disperse to new areas using a technique called ballooning. Ballooning occurs when spiderlings release a single strand of webbing that eventually catches an air current and lifts and blows the tiny spiders virtually anywhere.

The lifespan of a spider is about one to two years on average. An exception to this includes larger spider species, such as the tarantula, which can live up to 20 years. The lifespan of a spider is influenced by factors such as its species, environmental conditions, and whether it is male or female. Female spiders tend to live longer than males.

What attracts spiders?

Spiders are drawn to homes by various factors, both inside and outside. Inside, cluttered spaces and dark corners provide ideal hiding spots, while the presence of insects like flies or mosquitoes can attract spiders looking for a meal. Damp areas, such as leaky pipes or poorly ventilated spaces, can attract spiders, as some species prefer humid environments. Small cracks or openings in your home's exterior can serve as spiders' entry points. They can easily slip through these gaps in search of shelter, especially in poor weather conditions. 

Outside, poorly maintained gardens with overgrown vegetation create cozy habitats for spiders. Neglected sheds, woodpiles, and other outdoor structures can offer shelter for spiders, too. Additionally, exterior lighting attracts insects, which, in turn, can lure spiders seeking food sources. 

Remaining vigilant about specific attractants can help to prevent spiders from invading and taking over your home. A spider exterminator will work to identify areas around your home where spiders are hiding and determine the species present. Once the spider's location, your property size, the extent of the infestation, and other relevant factors have been assessed, a skilled spider control professional will determine how to remove them effectively.

How much does spider control cost?

Spider control costs can vary by location, size of the property, amount of infestation, and more. Our company customizes your spider control plan to target the type of spider species infesting your property. After a thorough inspection, they can identify the spider species and enforce a proper spider removal plan to remove them.
