It is a common misconception that spiders are insects, when in fact, they are arachnids. Unlike insects, spiders do not have chewing mouth parts, wings, or antenna. In fact, they have eight legs (insects have six) and two body segments. Their hollow fangs allow them to inject venom to kill their prey before sucking them up!

The intricate webs created by spiders are due to the silk they produce – which they also use for catching their prey, swinging from one place to another, and covering their egg sacs. 

The life span of a spider in Northern New York is usually one year. Most spiders pass the winter as eggs, mate in the spring, develop into full adults in the summer, and then die in the fall. However, some spiders do survive winter by finding cracks and crevices to hide in, and a type of antifreeze in their blood keeps them from freezing.



Perimeter Spray Treatment of the entire outside of the house- We spray a residual insecticide treatment around all entry points and the perimeter of your house. We spray anywhere they are webbing, on decks, under eaves, on porches and other areas on the exterior of buildings.

Indoor Spray Treatment – We spray along baseboards, in corners,  crack and crevices along baseboards, window and door frames, and other areas where spiders may crawl.

Treatment for spiders can  includes an inside and/or outside service.  All pets need to be out the treatment area for no less than 4 hours, including birds.  Fish Tanks need to be covered and pump turned off. Heat/AC need to be turned off during treatment and for 4 hours after treatment so chemical can settle.
