Detangling the Web: Spider Control for Your Tri-State Home

There are more than 3,500 species of spiders in the United States alone. They’ve adapted to survive in nearly every type of landscape on the planet, but with our spider control services and tips, your Tri-State home can be the exception. Just the sight of their eight legs sneaking along your walls is enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. Fortunately, Masters Pest Control offers programs for controlling spider populations on your property. 

Two of the most venomous arachnids can be found in the Tri-State area, the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse. Black widows are mostly likely to be found in secluded areas such as fallen trees, near rocks, or in basements and crawlspaces. As the name implies, Brown Recluse spiders will usually be found in dark, dry locations like attics, garages, sheds, or boxes. 

Spider bites are most likely to occur while rummaging through old boxes or containers as spiders like those hiding places. Here are a few steps you can take to keep them out of such spaces in the first place: 

  •      Install screens on doors and windows
  •      Seal or caulk cracks and crevices in the house
  •      Sweep or vacuum to clean up webs in dark corners of your house
  •      Shake out unworn clothing and stored shoes before wearing

The majority of spiders, however, are not venomous to humans. A variety of harmless species roam among us in the Tri-State and Hudson Valley areas, including the Grass Spider, Wolf Spider, Hobo Spider, Saint Andrew’s Cross Spider, and more. While their bites don’t pack quite the same punch as the feared Widow and Recluse, they are nonetheless painful and may require treatment in some cases. 

The spider isn’t your average pest as they’re not susceptible to chemical pesticide use because of their elevated bodies (which prevent them from coming into direct contact with surfaces coated in pesticides) and tendency to stay close to their webs. Our experts know the most effective, safest way to eliminate your particular spider problem and keep them away in the future.  

It’s very difficult to detect a spider’s presence and even harder to spot their many hatchlings. Schedule a free consultation or your next appointment by calling (877) 546-9575 or sending an email to To learn more about the services we offer, please click here.
