Houston Exterminator Spider Control

Many of us would much rather avoid having to deal with spider extermination. Unfortunately, many arachnids choose to make our homes their own. When we come across these 8-legged creatures, it can send a shiver up our spines. It may even signal danger if we have venomous varieties on our property. When looking for help with pest control services in Houston, homeowners know they can trust ABC Home & Commercial Services. ABC's proven spider exterminator experts give our customers peace of mind so they won't have to worry about future close encounters with these common household intruders.

Is Spider Control Necessary?

In their natural habitat, spiders are largely beneficial. They can eat pesky insects such as roaches, aphids, mosquitoes, moths and earwigs, although homeowners cannot count on these creatures for comprehensive pest control since they cannot make much of a dent if there is an actual infestation. While typically not aggressive, a spider can bite when threatened, which can put people at risk when they accidentally stumble upon one when getting something out of the attic, cleaning out a closet or working in the garage.

Brown Recluse

While every spider is technically venomous, there are two species of poisonous spiders here in Houston: the black widow and the brown recluse. Many homeowners cannot identify which type of spider they have come across. The markings can be subtle, making it difficult for a homeowner to distinguish a harmless variety from a harmful one. For peace of mind, enlist the help of spider pest control professionals. Our spider exterminators at ABC can determine whether the spider species on your property is dangerous and let you know if there are any additional pest problems.

ABC takes a full-property approach to spider control. We start by applying preventative products to your home’s interior and exterior. Since spiders prefer to hide in hard-to-reach places, it may take us a few hours to treat your property entirely. Sometimes, we ask that our customers take their pets elsewhere during that service call to allow treatment products to dry thoroughly.

Prevent Future Spider Infestations

While spiders prefer to stay out of our way, these creatures are standard fixtures in our homes and yards. Spiders prefer to stay in hard-to-reach spots or in more protected areas that are tucked away. To prevent future issues, we may seal up any entry points that spiders and other pests could use to enter your home. Additionally, ABC offers an ongoing pest monitoring program that provides protection from spiders and a variety of other common household invaders on an ongoing basis.

To make your property less attractive to spiders, we generally recommend that homeowners do the following:

What Our Customers Are Saying

Toni Covarrubias


“So far the service we've been getting is as scheduled. However, this time I was not notified 30 minutes prior to arrival as originally told. The front looks great as usual. The backyard wasn't edged as nice as the front (or at all?), and I really would have appreciated deep edging around our firepit. Addendum 12/8/23: Changed 3 stars to 5 stars for follow-up service! After the above review, I was contacted by ABC in regards to my initial review. Anne was very courteous and eager to send someone out to follow up on my concerns. Arrangements were made that met my schedule, and the crew was very prompt in their arrival on said scheduled date. Our backyard is now 10 times better. Granted, there is still clean up to do on our part, but now it will be so much easier. Certainly worth the subscription price based on customer service alone! Photos depict final work first vs initial service.”

“He had ABC home and commercial services treat our home for a flea infestation. They were quick efficient and extremely informative. The technician was very thorough, advised what we should expect when he would be out again, he took great care of our Furniture, and personal affects as he moved him around and sprayed the house. We will absolutely be using ABC home and commercial service going forward”
