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:

“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
