Spider Pest Control

Spiders are considered a major pest in Nigeria. They usually carry venomous effects, and some of them even create dangerous webs that can cause serious problems in the house. Some of them even can kill the small animals in the backyard.

Sanitizing is a chemical process that lessens and even kills germs on surfaces to make them safe for contact. Sanitizer also refers to household products (especially hand sanitizer) that are used to prevent the spread of disease.

Spiders are considered a major pest in Nigeria. They usually carry venomous effects, and some of them even create dangerous webs that can cause serious problems in the house. Some of them even can kill the small animals in the backyard.

If you live in a house with a lot of spiders, it is time to cut their numbers down. Spiders have harmful effects on your home and business premises.

Three of the most common species of spiders living in Nigeria are black widows, brown recluse spiders, and wolf spiders.

-Black widow spiders

Black widow spiders are identified by an orange-red "hourglass" mark that is found on the underside of their abdomens. They may also have light red or white markings on their abdomens and backs. Their round bodies are black and shiny.

-Brown recluse spiders

Brown recluse spiders are yellowish-gray to black and their abdomens are covered in gray hairs. Their long legs are darker in color than their bodies. Brown recluse spiders have a unique "violin-like" pattern found on the top of their bodies. They have three pairs of eyes that are distinctly arranged in a semi-circle.

-Wolf spiders

Wolf spiders tend to startle and intimidate people with their large size and fast movements. Instead of using a web to catch their prey, these spiders chase and "hunt" down their prey in a wolf-like manner. Wolf spiders are dark brown and they typically have two dark stripes on their back. They have stout bodies, long legs, and are covered in hair.

Are spiders dangerous?

Even though spiders are naturally reclusive and rarely bite, they have the potential to be dangerous pests. Wolf spiders are an example of nuisance spiders. The venom of nuisance spiders is not strong enough to cause health problems in most people.

Black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders are examples of dangerous spiders. Their venom is strong enough to cause serious health problems in people. The symptoms caused by a dangerous spider bite require medical attention but are typically not life-threatening. Care should always be taken around black widow and brown recluse spiders. If you discover them in your home or on your property, you should contact a professional to remove them.

Why do I have a spider problem?

You get a spider problem in your home when you move in or close any new opening with lots of cracks and crevices. This happens when you move furniture and or equipment from your previous home. You will often see spiders without webs in new homes. 

Spiders can become a problem on any property that offers ample food and shelter sources. Once living on your property, it is quite common for spiders to find their way inside your home while foraging for food. They will also move indoors when the weather outside becomes too cold, wet, hot, or dry, or in the late fall, when their prey (insects) moves indoors to overwinter.

How do I get rid of spiders?

A few common house spider extermination methods include using a can of insect spray, capturing (and killing) the spider with a towel and paper, or simply vacuuming them up.
