Just thinking about spiders is cause enough to make some people’s skin crawl! But they are actually quite beneficial to our outdoor living spaces as they eat other insects. Many live in trees and tall shrubs. Some gardeners welcome them as they serve as natural pest control!
But when they enter your home they can be quite a nuisance. They leave behind sticky webs and eggs. And should you get a spider bite it could be quite serious.
Be careful about bringing used furniture into your home; they may contain eggs and infest your house. It’s recommended that you have used furnishings professionally cleaned before delivery.
Our Haggerty Services clients benefit from annual attic dusting as that’s where spiders most often nest. The treatment causes the dust to filter down into the wall voids. This yearly application is good for getting rid of other insects as well and has a long residual effect.
