Spider Control in Lakeland, FLArachnophobia, or the fear of spiders, is one of the most common phobias in the United States. A phobia is defined as an “irrational fear”, but it is believed that since some spiders have poisonous bites, this information may translate into your mind with anxiety that all spiders do. Even if you do not panic whenever you see a spider, it can be alarming when they start showing up in dark corners of your home. Even if you kill one and flush it down the toilet, you never know if he has any friends that are still hanging out nearby . . .

According the IFAS extension of the University of Florida, “a single acre of a grassy field . . . can contain up to two million individual spiders.” That’s a pretty harrowing thought as you look out at your back lawn. Spider control can help cut down these numbers and give you better peace of mind.

Many spiders like to get into your home when the days start getting warmer. They aren’t doing this to attack you, but to keep themselves comfortable. With spider control, areas of your home that spiders might be able to get into or areas that they might hide can be treated with special pesticides. Regular pesticides will not kill spiders, since they are arachnids and not insects.
