There are two types of spiders that can invade East Nashville homes. Some are mostly harmless and won't do more than leave a red, itchy welt on your skin, if it is able to bite you at all. And some are poisonous and can present a health concern when they get in. These two types of spiders require two types of pest control service. Let's take a look at how professional pest control works for each.

Non-Poisonous Spiders

There are many non-poisonous spiders that get into our East Nashville homes but the two we have the most problems with are wolf spiders and American house spiders. Other spiders such as cellar spiders, orb spiders, and zipper spiders, prefer to be outside and only come in by accident. For all of these spiders, our service team members perform a detailed inspection and remove any webs that can be reached with their web removal tool, during the first of three passes around a home. This process, along with routine pest control treatments that work to eliminate their source of food, is usually enough to stop these spiders from becoming a problem.

Poisonous Spiders

The two poisonous spiders we deal with in East Nashville are the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider. These two spiders probably don't need any introduction. Their ability to inflict harmful wounds is well known. Since they are a more significant threat, we offer a more comprehensive service for them.

Our brown recluse spider reduction service plans build off the power of our Perimeter Plus Pest Control which covers over 47 different Tennessee pests. Above the normal exterior treatment services, our team provides treatments of the attic, basement, and crawl spaces, strategic placement of glue boards, and an application of dust within wall voids.

When black widow spiders are the problem, our service team members use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods, green pest control solutions, and EPA-approved products to monitor for black widow activity and eliminate the spiders that have invaded.

Common Spiders Don't Have to be a Common Problem

There are many spiders that are considered to be common house spiders because they are a common problem for homeowners. But those spiders don't have to be a common problem in your East Nashville home. With Perimeter Plus Pest Control from All-American or one of our three brown recluse spider reduction service plans, you can reduce your exposure to all the spiders that can come into your yard and get into your home. And, while we're protecting your home from spiders, you'll have coverage for over 47 other pests that can present a threat to your health and property. No East Nashville home should be without a pest plan. Let us help you get yours in place today.
