As a pest control company in Vancouver, Washington, we get a lot of calls from customers that have spiders. Our moderate, typically wet, climate is perfect for spiders to live and thrive. Many of our customers that call us have some very similar questions. Maybe you are considering having us treat your home for spiders or maybe you just have some questions. Either way, take a look at the some of the most common questions that we get asked below:
How much does a spider treatment cost?
Our spider treatment costs are pretty simple. We offer an $98.00 online coupon that covers a basic spider treatment. This is a targeted approach that addresses either the inside or outside of the home and works great for smaller issues. We also offer a Whole Home Treatment that is typically around $198.00 that covers all areas of the home and generally comes with a short term warranty.
Are the products you use safe?
Yes! The products that we use are designed to work within the specific biology of an exoskeleton spider or insect. Each of our products are registered with the EPA and are vigorously tested before being approved to use inside of the home. In addition to this, the product that we trend towards in all of our treatments is a type of Pyrethrin known as “bifenthrin” that is a safe, Green option. One of our only precautions is that we ask that people or pets do not touch the product while it is still wet. For more information on the products that we use or our safety protocol, please call in.
What kind of poisonous spiders do we have in the Portland Metro area?
All spiders are venomous to an extent, but the only spiders that can do serious harm to humans are the big three (black widow, brown recluse and hobo spider). All of these are rare in this area. Black Widow spiders are extremely rare and are mostly found here from furniture or supplies shipped from other areas. Brown Recluse spiders are even more rare and are typically found in the southern states where a warmer climate exists. Only the Hobo spider is typically found here in the Pacific Northwest and even that spider is fairly rare. For more information on these spiders and how to tell them apart, go to our Spider Information Page.
How do I prepare to have you treat my house?
When we treat the inside of your home, we are focusing on the interior baseboards of the home to create a perimeter. Be sure to pick up any clothes or other items off of the floor. There is no need to move any larger furniture, because we can spray around those items. If you have any pets, be sure to remove any food dishes or toys. Kid toys should also picked up or moved to the center of the room.
If you have any more questions or if you would like to schedule a technician to come out and treat for spiders, please contact us!
