Spider and cockroach treatments are available to help rid your home of disgusting and annoying bugs that have a tendency to linger in the corners of the ceiling, crawl around on your countertops, or hide and build nests in unsuspecting places such as your bathroom, kitchen, or pantry. Spider and cockroach treatments include a series of special chemicals that target spiders and cockroaches, killing them on site and also killing any nests that are present. We recommend enlisting the services of a professional pest control technician to take on this challenge especially if you have the pests in an odd or hard-to-reach location, or even poisonous spiders.
What Causes Spiders
There are various instances that can attract or cause spiders, but the most common one is that you have conditions in which spiders find it comfortable to build a web, lay eggs, and create a nest. Spiders aren’t necessarily attracted to food sources like other pests are, such as ants or cockroaches, but they instead look for dark and dusty places where they can easily sew webs and hide. This is why you find spiders in the corners of your ceilings, cabinets, the back of closets, and in your garage. So, usually what causes spiders is the conditions in which your home is in and whether or not it’s suitable for spiders. Reducing dust and adding more air to your home can make the interior space less suitable for spiders.
How to Get Rid of Spiders
To get rid of spiders, you need to remove its home, or its web. Spiders take up full-time residence in their webs and rarely move away from their webs unless looking for food or other insects. If you have a space that’s not often visited, such as a storage cabinet in the garage, you’ll likely find lots of spiders in this space because of its darkness and its interior conditions. By adding some air conditioning and light to these spaces, you can easily reduce the probability that spiders will take up residence there.
What Causes Cockroaches
Cockroaches, like ants, are attracted to a food source somewhere in the home. They’re able to follow the food source, feed off of it, and continue to come back to it for as long as possible. Cockroaches feed off of human food scraps and any items containing fats, salts, and sugar. Often times, cockroaches may also transport those food items back to their nest, so killing them on the spot will reduce them both in quantity and removing the food source will prevent new ones from returning.
How to Get Rid of Cockroaches
Getting rid of cockroaches requires spraying them to kill them on site and removing their nest, as well as the food source. We also recommend cleaning the space where the cockroaches travelled between because cockroaches are known to carry certain infections and diseases, so keeping the space clean can reduce the spreading of germs in the meantime.
